Pet Sounds is unrelentingly boring. There, I said it.

And all of the production studio nonsense just makes it worse, imo.

I mean, I get that it was influential in its day and must have sounded like this amazing leap forward at the time, but to me it still sounds kind of hokey the way a lot of music from the early in mid-60s does.

Even with a lot of Spector-esque mumbo-jumbo piled on top of it. Sgt. Pepper’s, in contrast, has had remarkable staying power. Sounds fresh and original to this day.

I’m not enough of a fan to run to the defense of Pet Sounds, but I think hearing the isolated vocal tracks helped me appreciate the whole thing more. https://youtu.be/FPN53PHDwe4

I will grant you that it’s one of the dumbest album covers ever, however :ike:

Brian Wilson’s vocal arrangements are masterpieces! also "Good Vibrations" is one of the best songs of the 60s. I agree wholeheartedly with the "sounding dated " though

Not here to trash the Beach Boys in general, just the idea of Pet Sounds as a masterpiece. Good Vibrations was a single, right? Not on PS anyway.
