The Top Ten Beach Boys Albums
The Top Ten
Pet sounds totally changed the beach boys and showed the world what they could do. It's more deep and personal than their early surfing themed songs. At the time Capitol records considered this album to be a complete failure. However over the years it has grown to be considered one of the greatest albums of all time. I wonder if Capitol records ate their words and apologized to Brian Wilson. - Windowstcm1988
Listen to Paul McCartney about this one: "I believe nobody can claim to musically educated until they have listened to this album." Those are not his exact words, but as close as I can get off the top of my head. He bought a copy for each of his children for their musical education. The Beatles played it for their sound engineers over and over while recording Sgt. Pepper's. - beatles
Lemme explain something: this song did nothing for the beach boys when it first came out. It received a lot of critical acclaim, but didn't sell like their other albums.
Is there even a contest? - EGBrett
The beach boys have been making album for 50 years! - SammySpore
Their unfinished masterpiece. Listen to the Smile Sessions.
Greatest piece of music ever recorded
The smile sessions are so good
My Fave BB album! I am going against the grain here, pet sounds is number 2 for me.
This album still has the beachy sound pe sounds lacks yet has jazzy mature sound verses very early BB albums. California Girls, Then I Kissed her, Help me Rhonda, Your's so Good to Me all great songs.
Its one of those albums that's a must have for any collection.
