Pet Sounds

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.
