Hi all! The new PET SQUARES: A GEEK'S GUIDE TO THE BEACH BOYS is up. PET SQUARES #12 is part one of a two hour deep dive into the BEACH BOYS TODAY! album. A lot here to digest, and we give it full weight.

Let me know what you think! And thanks to all that have become, or will become, contributors or patrons to the channel (see youTube first comment for more info). It has really enabled these shows to get up more quickly.

So much to watch, so little time. Thanks for sharing this! What can you say about "Today"? That's an album to look deep into.

a diseased bunch of mo'fos if there ever was one… their beauty is so awesome that listening to them at their best is like being in some vast dream cathedral decorated with a thousand gleaming American pop culture icons.

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Adam--excellent work! These just keep getting better and better.

Curious if you can pinpoint WHEN these songs were written relative to one another and present that in a summary kind of way somewhere in part two, as I think there's an evolutionary step toward PET SOUNDS in the songs written closer to the release of TODAY. Some of that is sort of set aside for SUMMER DAYS as Brian works his way through and beyond his "Spector phase" and into his own unique production sounds, so I tend to think it's important to pinpoint the thread between the more introspective tracks in TODAY and how they are a key flowthrough point to PET SOUNDS. Just a thought--and, of course, if you've already wrapped up Part 2 and what's being suggested here is just not possible, so be it. But I think that would great to add in, and it makes sense to be in Part 2, because it covers the "introspective" side of TODAY...
