Oldie But a Goodie


Say what you want about Uncle Jesse. He handled himself well when the Japanese teleprompter ran out, he made an Extreme-ly cheesy music video, he exploited his children to further his career, etc... The fact remains, the man had good taste in music and hence, of course, his love for the Beach Boys.

It's no secret that Pet Sounds is/was cited by Paul McCartney as the Beatles' inspiration for Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. I will say no more about it except to say that if you don't own this album and you consider yourself a music fan, most critics (Lester Bangs included,) would be shocked and appalled.

Congrats to the Bangers. Hopefully the new site traffic isn't too pissed off by this obvious of a classic album choice...

It's unbeatable really. When I was 17 my New Years resolution was to listen to it every day for the year. I did and guess what? It never got tired.

There has been an overwhelming consensus among music critics (since the late 1960s?) that the Beach Boys' Pet Sounds is the "American Sgt. Peppers".
I only had the HDCD version of this album, does the LP version of this album really is better than the HDCD? Or what about the stereo or mono versions of the Pet Sounds LP, which is musically better? I'm very curious about the opinions of people who experienced this venerable album when it was first released.

Sorry I didn't get Pet Sounds. The Beach Boys didn't come to the Beatles knees in talent.
