||PET SOUNDS HEARD BY PEOPLE|
WHEN BRIAN STARTED TO WRITE HIS MASTERPIECE HE TURNED TO PAUL MCCARTNEY AND THE BEATLES FOR HIS INSPIRATION. WHEN THIS WAS FIRST HEARD BY THE SUITS AT CAPITAL, THEY JUST DID NOT GET IT. THE EXECUTIVES WANTED MORE SURF MUSIC AND TO STICK TO THE GAME PLAN. BRIAN FOLLOWED HIS DREAM AND PRODUCED THE ALBUM THAT CAME FROM DEEP INSIDE HIS MIND. THIS ALBUM IS ABOUT GROWING UP. IT IS ABOUT FINDING ONE SELF , GETTING MARRIED, ALL OF THE ROADS WHICH LEAD US TO BECOME ADULTS. THIS IS A TRUE TESTAMENT OF ALL OUR INSECURITIES AND QUESTIONS. THIS WORK OF ART BELONGS AHEAD OF REVOLVER AND JUST BEHIND THE ALBUM OF ALL TIME ,SGT PEPPER. THANKYOU BRIAN

||A '60s Masterpiece, Artfully Remastered|
Nearly a Brian Wilson solo project, Pet Sounds is a tone-perfect snapshot of teen life in mid-sixties California. But it's more...much more. While the songs are wonderfully crafted, it's the production, as rendered by Brian, that sets this one apart. Vocal arrangements so tight that a prayer could not slip through, unique horn charts, amazing bass lines, Pet Sounds was so unlike anything that came before that its audience was puzzled; it sank from the charts with a bullet. Influential among musicians, it took decades to be appreciated by a wider audience. Now, nearly everybody knows what Paul McCartney and others knew then: Pet Sounds is not just a great album, it is art, a pop masterpiece deservedly lionized 36 years later. Repeated listenings always bring fresh surprises; from nowhere, a banjo springs forth...over there, a bicycle horn blares...barking dogs, "plucked" piano strings, always in context, seemlessly woven into a majestic musical tapestry that refuses to sound dated. The idea of a "stereo" version of Pet Sounds is sacrilege (fiddling with the greatest album ever?). Having said that, it must be noted that the original cd release of Pet Sounds was a bit leaden and muddy. Newly remastered in stereo, the fidelity is breathtaking. Crisp and clear, with its gorgeous intricacy lade bare, it's not just worth another listen; it's a revelation.

||The Best Album Ever?|
Pet Sounds is maybe the best album ever made. It was revolutionary on its own, and even more because it meant the loss of the Beach Boys innocence, and the beggining of a new phase for their music. It has influenced pop music so much, and it will still be a classic many years from now. It is really astonishing how Brian Wilson could conceive such a masterpiece just four years after Surfin' Safari.

||The Greatest Album of the Sixties|
No one can argue the point that Pet Sounds was brilliant, and that Brian Wilson was equally brilliant in being the creative channel it was conceived through. No one was ready for this when it was released. It was quite interesting to note, then, that the album went to #1 in Britain, but never reached those heights in the group's native country. They were besting the Beatles in their own home country, and were flopping on the West Coast! Who'd have thunk that such a thing would happen, but it did. Each of these songs is so achingly beautiful that there is nothing to compare it with anything else the group ever made or conceived of making. It is simply incredible. You have to listen to it to understand it.

This album is chock full of great melodies and wonderful subject material. Brian Wilson is a true musical genius on this entire album. My personal favorite track is "God Only Knows." It gets me every time. Anyone who dislikes this album, I pity you.
