This is one of the best albums of all time. My favorites on this track is "God Only Knows", "That's not Me", "I Know There's an Answer". This album inpired the Beatles to make Sgt Pepper. Brian did write and produce this album all by himself (he got help with lyrics from Tony Asher thought). This is the greatest achivement in music of all time.

Great album. One of the worst covers ever, though (in my opinion).

One of the best ever made. Brian Wilson is a genius. I kinda like the other Beach Boys records but why are they so much worse (my opinion)? If Pet Sounds got the recognition back in the days that it gets now, maybe the albums after Pet Sounds were better, we'll never know. I think that it only got downhill from here on...

There's not much to say about Pet Sounds that has not already been said thousands of times before. It is a monument to Brian Wilson's genius, the album that beat the Beatles, the Beach Boys emerging from their cocoon, the best album of the 1960s and the how-to-do manual for baroque pop.

A good record that never meant anything to me personally--I prefer any early GH, also Wild Honey and many other late-'60s early-'70s albums.
