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.

The perfect feelgood album. Can't help but think about times in the sun when I play Pet Sounds. Not a weak song on the album and I couldn't pick a stand out or favourite track if I tried.

After going through and rating the tracks, I'm shocked to find this may be the most consistent album ever. Nonstop classics. I think I need to bump it up 10 or 20 spots on my chart.

The progressive nature of Pet Sounds as a pop album is unparalleled.
Brian Wilson, the genius and the producer behind the composition and writing of this album did the inevitable for him as an artist by using Coca-Cola cans and barking dogs as a medium for revolutionizing the ways of producing music.

Wide symphonic arrangements and the signature vocal harmonies is proof of the evolution that Brian brought to The Beach Boys (and inspired The Beatles with).

McCartney drew heavily upon this album for Sgt. Peppers, just as Wilson drew heavily on Rubber Soul for this album. Just try to image the creative reciprocity of this era where music was evolving so rapidly and was challenged in every sense of the terms. Among others at the time, this was driven by the genius of Wilson. Simply fantastic.
