People! Get this album back in the top ten, please! It needs to be in the top five! Top ten at the very least!

More justice for the most consistent album of all time!

"Don't Talk" and "Caroline, No" are just as good as any of the other big songs on the album ("Wouldn't It Be Nice", "Sloop John B", "God Only Knows"). "Caroline, No" really reflects the changing styles and attitudes of the 1960s. If you're looking for a great CD edition of this album, get Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab's hybrid SACD. Even if you don't have SACD equipment, it'll play on any regular CD player and it sounds so sublime.

Incredibly timeless. One of the very few albums that, I admit, has made me weep - in a manly way, of course...lol

Agreat pop record indeed. What nice sound production layering... Fav track Sloop John B I can listen to that one over & over. God only Knows, Wouldn't It Be nice, Carloine etc etc.. No tracks I "skip", which is telling to me. Deserved critical praise from the masses for this album. MEZ

I really was surprised by the album. Over than lacking consistency of song quality it was really good. I loved the mentality and the themes it presented. It changed the way I see not only the Beach Boys, but also how it influenced the music that came after it.

There's not much I can really say about Pet Sounds. It's just one of the greatest pop albums ever made.
