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.

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.

I see Crimson has quoted me as saying without Brian the Beach boys were "nothing". Where did I say that? That doesn't appear anywhere in my comment. My initial reason for the comment was Crimson's outrageous claim that the Beach boys, and this is a quote, were "much, much better than the Beatles". Sorry, not having that. By the way, I still don't quite understand your most recent comment and your spelling isn't great either.
