No doubt about it. Pet Sounds. Best of the best.

I have to agree that Dennis Wilson's superb solo album is underated. "Baby Blue" is very melancholy and sung with a weary sigh of someone who has been through it all.

My favorite moments...

Sail on Sailor. (But not sung by a Beach Boy)

Heroes and Villains (any version)

The recently and finally completed "Smile". YAAAAAY!!!

Wow, I did not know that..and I loved that song when it came out. Great tune!

I can hear the falsetto in my head! Amazing, the bits of information stored away in dormant brain cells.

Beatle's producer, George Martin, once said that "Sgt. Pepper" would never have existed if it wasn't for "Pet Sounds."

There are a lot of their songs I like. I don't listen to them that often though. I tend to find after listening to them for a while I get bored and want to move onto something different. But definitely good music.

I would pick the Beach Boys as the best band of the 1960's over both the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. However the Kinks do come in a close second.

Pet Sounds is an amazing record. Brian Wilson is a genius!

In the "current" Beach Boys Mike Love is the only original member left. Al Jardine has his own group and Brian Wilson is a solo. I would avoid the Mike Love group at all cost mainly because all you will hear are the same songs on every show. Yeah they probably put on a good show, but they need to broaden their set lists. Do some of the later tunes that are seldom heard.

I'm a fan. My favorite would have to be Good Vibrations.

Dennis Wilson's solo album Pacific Ocean Blue-Great Record. He never got the credit he deserved but Dennis was a great talent and songwriter, and wrote a lot of great tunes for the Beach Boys during the period when Brian became less invovled.
