The rise and downfall of Brian Wilson and the whole production era of 1966-1968 really gives me the creeps in the best way. It's really crazy how differently music history would've gone if they'd released Smile in 1967, especially considering how some Beatles albums have been considered a reaction to them. They were still strong through the 70s in my opinion and their 2012 comeback is great. Deceptively deep and complex, which I guess is a beautiful thing. It's art under the guise of simplicity

It really does upset me how underrated The Beach Boys are compared to say, The Beatles, despite the fact that they are easily on a par with them, if not (in my opinion) even better. The issue seems to be that most people judge them by their early singles (e.g. Surfin USA, I Get Around etc.); good as they are, the majority of the Boys' best work is to be found later on in their career in the 1970s (Sunflower, Surf's Up, Holland), with incredibly beautiful and brilliant songs such as Surf's Up, The Trader, Till I Die and All I Wanna Do. Unfortunately, these albums go mostly overlooked, and The Beach Boys continue to be judged by their early work (you wouldn't judge The Beatles on Please Please Me alone!!) Don't make the same mistake and don't underestimate this fantastic band - perhaps the best ever! Get listening :) x

Pet Sounds and Smile (Brian Wilson's version released in the 2000s) are pretty good, but Beach Boys are bit overrated for me. Most of their stuff is pretty lame. Either just bad or poppy boy band stuff. They had some really cool arrangements due to Brian Wilson, some solid harmonies and the such, but I would rank them a bit lower as a band. They would probably make my top 100, not top 20.

Brian Wilson is a pure genius. Essential albums is Pet Sounds, Surf's Up, Friends and Smile Sessions. Dennis Wilson i kinda underrated. He wrote "Forever" and "Slip in through" for example. Those tracks are awesome. Carl Wilson best track is "Long Promised Road".

They are one of the greatest bands of all time. Everyone who only listened to Pet Sounds needs to check out their other records. Even though they might be not as good (bar The SMile Sessions) there is a lot of wonderful music to discover.

Recommended albums: Pet Sounds, The SMile Sessions, Love You, Today!, Friends, Sunflower, Surf's Up, Summer Days (And Summer Nights), Wild Honey, Holland

My favorite band and the most nostalgic for me. All of my love of melody, harmony, and baroque pop comes from this sunny band that made a decades worth of masterpieces of pop music.
