1.) Wild Honey
2.) Pet Sounds
3.) The Beach Boys Love You
4.) Friends
5.) The Beach Boys Today!
6.) Summer Days (and Summer Nights!!)
7.) All Summer Long
8.) Sunflower
9.) Smiley Smile
10.) 20/20

Runners Up: Surfer Girl, Shut Down Vol. 2

I'm not really sure where to rank The Smile Sessions since I don't think of it as an album in the same way that I think of the others.  Perhaps because it's not really a completed album.

I chose Pet Sounds, but in reality, it could be Today, Summer Days, Smile or Sunflower.

I chose The Smile Sessions on the basis of Surf's Up, Cabinessence and Heroes and Villains alone.  But another time I might have chosen Pet Sounds.

Love You is the only post-Sunflower album thats integral as far as Im concerned/ Holland with Sailor and California, Surfs Up with Til I Die... every album from Surfer Girl thru Wild Honey are essential for sure , not counting the xmas album, concert and party,,,

If there's one decade of music I dislike the most it's the 80s. I've never liked the crappy electronic drums or keyboards that almost every 80s song had.

You probably mean every 80's mainstream song, and even that would be a false generalization.

A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.
And, for anyone who has actually experienced them, surfing and cars carry PLENTY of emotion and life experience. They can carry as much metaphor as any Van Dyke Parks clever epistle.

Pet Sounds, Today and Sunflower as the big three, followed by Summer Days, Wild Honey, Holland and Love You. Somewhere in there is the Smile music.
