And like that, every 1967 album had the same sound to it.
Brian Wilson is probably the only artist ever to create a new genre from scratch. Most genres just develop in time, but psychedelic music was invented.

I could name a dozen of genres and production techniques Brian Wilson had put in the album, but the greatest thing is that he never made it sound pretentious. He kept making music for the masses, for the normal person. Relatability and superficial enjoyment of the music were always central.

This is an amazing album. I loved this from first listen but then researching more about Brian Wilson made me love it and the beach boys so much more.

Well what is there left to say about Brian Wilson and his imagination an amazing album full of summertime music. You wake up on a sunny day play this album and the feeling lasts all day play it on a rainy day and it cheers u up. Every track is an experience I should know it took me 30 years to get into it !

I can't make into words how unbelievable this album is, every song here is so filled with emotion, love, hate, sadness, happiness, It is a testament of our time. To think a band like Beach Boys drop a album like this is incredible, Brian Wilson took his genius songwriting here inspired by Beatles's Rubber Soul and made an album that surpases many Beatles masterpieces like "Revolver" and even "Sgt. Pepper" with was inspired by Pet Sounds. Few songs in history can deliver such emotion as "God Only Knows", 100/100 isn't enough to rate this song. I can only hope that Brian Wilson and Pet Sounds will have their place in the museums of art hundreds of years from now, side by side with The Beatles.

One of the greatest and definitely the most influential album of all time. The harmonies, arrangements, production and the use of a variety of instruments are at their best. Brian Wilson is at his peak both physically (voice) and mentally (production and lyrics).

Beautiful album. Always loved the Beach Boys' harmonies - so lovely to listen too. Brian Wilson during this period was a genuis.
