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.
