All I knew about The Beach Boys music came from hearing my sister playing a greatest hits compilation when I was a nipper - all surf songs and Californ-eye-ay. So I thought. I knew this album was highly regarded before coming on this site, Pet Sounds was even name dropped in a Beta Band CD I own but I only recently bought it. Love listening to a sound different from my expectations and straight up their in my favourites. An album everyone should give a go.

I understand this album as the cornerstone "concept album," but it's a bit boring to me. A lot of the songs sound the same, except of course the standouts like Sloop John B. and God Only Knows. I concede it deserves the placing it's at. But overall, it's not my favorite listen. Just my thoughts.

I can safely say without hyperbole that this is the best produced album ever. The harmonies are by far their best and the lyrics have improved much since their stereotypical surf music. The best album in a great year for music.

When I was a kid, I used to spin Beach Boys albums for hours on the turntable in my parents' basement. I always loved "Wouldn't It Be Nice," "Sloop John B," and "God Only Knows," but it wasn't until many years later that I came to appreciate what a thoroughly textured, weird, and wonderful album Pet Sounds is. "Wouldn't It Be Nice" is the song I want to sing to my future wife, whoever she may be.

What can anyone say? Absolute perfection. A wonderful song cycle, there's not a duff track, in fact every song is brilliant. I mean, come on, God only knows, one of the great all time songs. I'm probably just repeating what everyone else is saying, but so what, it's pet sounds. It blows my mind every time I listen to it. A masterpiece.
