Always a sense of unfulfilled potential because of Brian's health. A very sad story.

I never got all the fuss. They were indeed creative at times, but overall, pretty standard stuff and often downright lukewarm.

Am I the only one who finds the harmonies irritating after several songs? Pet Sounds is a great record, Surf's Up is good. I find comparisons with the Beatles faintly ridiculous they are a very different group with no where near the range of classic output.

Great band and Pet Sounds is a classic, but without Brian Wilson, this group wouldn't be as beloved as they are now. Wilson made that band what they are. The harmonies didn't exactly hinder them either.

Really bland and overrated. Miles behind The Beatles.

Very talented vocalists. Early stuff is catchy but can be a bit repetitive. Pet Sounds is an amazing album, definitely one of my favourites. Post-Pet Sounds is a bit too experiment at times and harder to get into.

Starting with Pets Sounds an ending with Surf's Up, the Beach Boys created works almost on par with the Beatles. Their early stuff is pretty fun too.

Overrated and underrated at the same time.
