The Beach Boys (Pet Sounds) 1966




Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time
Pet Sounds
at #2


I may not have been alive when Pet Sounds first came out, but being a music lover and absorbing plenty of different albums from countless bands and singers in and around 1966, I can easily see and hear what a monster album this was and to some extent still is. The Beach Boys or more specifically Brian Wilson definitely pushed the boundaries both in sound as well as songwriting. It's just an amazing achievement for one man to conceive let alone translate all this out of his head onto tape.

We all know the background story of how Brian Wilson was majorly influenced by The Beatles album Rubber Soul and how Pet Sounds then became a huge influence on the writing and production of Sgt. Peppers' Lonely Hearts Club Band as The Beatles set about recording their masterpiece. Even though Pet Sounds is definitely different from previous Beach Boys albums in a lot of ways, it is still very much a Beach Boys albums. I just absolutely love listening to albums that influence other artist and hearing those subtle differences while also staying true to their original sound.

It's no wonder that Rolling Stone Magazine has Pet Sounds as #2 on their Top 500 Albums Of All Time List. FYI, Peppers is currently at #3 on the same list. It was at one time #1 but I think a lot of people that voted on that order eventually wised up to the fact that Pet Sounds belongs ahead of it.

Fave Songs: All of 'em. It's really hard to pick a song over another when the entire album works as one giant masterpiece.
