I recently saw a special on TV about the Beach Boys. It spurred me to give Pet Sounds a listen. I have listened to it about 10 times in the past 2 days.
This album is really special. I think it may be my favorite album. Others in my list would be (no particular order)
- Van Halen – 1984
- Prince – Purple Rain
- Nirvana – Nevermind
- Violent Femmes – Violent Femmes
Other great albums I like are compilations, like The Beatles – 1 or Billy Joel’s Greatest Hits.
Pet Sounds is so good. It is mesmerizing. Sloop John B is terribly moving. God Only Knows makes me happy and sad at the same time. The whole album makes me introspective. Thanks Brian Wilson.
