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.

Everything you need within an album. Emotional, psychedelic, melodic. There is not one bad song. Doesn't get old to listen to. 9.5/10.

9.5 I come to this whenever I am sad. It seems like a strange choice but it comforts me more than any other album. This album is really carried by: Wouldn't It Be Nice, Don't Talk, and God Only Knows.
