From Amiracle94 11/12/2017 00:07
Finally got around to listening to this album in full a few days ago and I was left spellbound by it. I've probably listened to it in full at least 10 times since then.

There are so many layers to each song that you couldn't possibly catch everything on first listen. The production is absolutely mind-blowing and genius, as the songs are intricate yet accessible.

The rather simplistic lyrics actually give the songs a sense of universality, where pretty much anyone can relate to the feelings of melancholy conveyed throughout this album. This is helped by Brian Wilson's emotive singing and possibly the most sublime vocal harmonies ever conceived of.

In short, I don't think that pop will ever reach the understated sophistication that it did here on Pet Sounds. Brian Wilson is truly a national treasure.

Even today this is one of the most ambitious and complex pop albums ever, both musically and lyrically: I can only imagine how it would have sounded in 1966.

The greatest album of the 1960's and arguably the greatest album in the history of pop. I can't say much that hasn't been said, but I will admit that "I Just Wasn't Made For These Times" is an underrated Beach Boys tune.

Qué discazo, de esos que te destrozan la cabeza a la primera escuchada y no dejan de hacerlo en las siguientes. Grande Brian Wilson.
