Listening to this is like eating a box of doughnuts. Saccharine gluttony.

This highly-influential, psychedelic pop album from 1966 is The Beach Boys and their distinctive California/Surfer sound at its best.

Featuring such memorable tunes as "Wouldn't It Be Nice" and "Sloop John B", Pet Sounds is The Beach Boys in their early days when they were actually considered "boys".

I bought Pet Sounds in 1966 and it knocked me out. This wasn't the great follow-up album to a maturing Beach Boys progression of music, it was a quantum leap of music and lyrics that spoke to me. It was overlooked because there was a lot of competition and many great songs then, especially from the Beatles. Pet Sounds makes my top 10 album list, and it remaims my favorite album.

This concept album (with various sound effects) came out the same year as the Beatles Sgt. Pepper's and was lost in the fuss over the Beatles. Pet Sounds appeared in all 24 music books and "Top" lists I have surveyed; ending up in nine Top 10 lists and getting the highest critics ratings. See the GerryD list for more album rankings.
