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.

Pet Sounds has always been an album that stuck with me. It's difficult to shake the feelings brought up by almost every single track here. It's the obvious Beach Boys classic, the obvious choice for the pinnacle of its genre, the best document of Brian Wilson's genius. For me, though, it's a go-to album for the lonely times, the exuberant times, the quiet times. If my face is red and my belly is full of spirits, I'm belting it out even in its absence. When it floods from my speakers, it fixes a smile to my face.

Wonderfull, harmonic and motivational. One of the best of the 60s. I never liked The Beach Boys too much, but this album will certainly change my way to see them, I had a great time listening to it, everything seems so perfect!

Still working on completely "getting" this album but God Only Knows gives me plenty of motivation.

Transformative, beautiful, melodic. There aren't enough words to describe this, in my opinion, perfect work.
