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.

Never knew The Beach Boys as more than the tunes that inspired their name before listening to Pet Sounds. A classic.

If I was trapped on a desert island and could only pick up one album to hear during my survival period and before I got back to society, this would be the one.

Il vertice assoluto della musica pop nell'accezione piĆ¹ nobile del termine, che forse e sottolineo forse solamente i Beatles avevano o avrebbero raggiunto.
