I would like to propose that the harmony line below the second verse of "Wouldn't It Be Nice" is the single most beautiful piece of music ever recorded. You know, the one they replay after the trains on the stereo version of "Caroline, No".

You must have the 40th anniversary edition, because it doesn't replay on my 2001 CD.

It is on the 40th. And I 100% agree with you...greatest vocal harmony ever.

I made an alternate version of 'Wouldn't It Be Nice' that includes that snippet of a cappella.

The Brianista Prayer

Oh Brian
Thou Art In Hawthorne,
Harmonied Be Thy name
Your Kingdom Come,
Your Steak Well Done,
On Stage As It Is In Studio,
Give Us This Day, Our Shortenin' Bread
And Forgive Us Our Bootlegs,
As We Also Have Forgiven Our Wife And Managers,
And Lead Us Not Into Kokomo,
But Deliver Us From Mike Love.
Amen.  ---hypehat

I can't review this album. Nothing I would ever say could do this justice. The only document to Brian Wilson's fully realized vision, the only testament to his overflowing genius. Not a single weak track, not a single weak moment. I will say this, though. The tone of voice Brian's falsetto takes is... curious, to say the least. It sounds like nothing else he took on, before or after. For a while there, I didn't even think he was singing in falsetto at all. Even the SMiLE sessions don't have him singing like this. Here, he sounds powerful, like a prophet from God came down to sing these notes. And, if I must say, "Don't Talk (Put Your Head on My Shoulder)" is the most beautiful ballad I've ever heard in my entire life. The instrumentals are some of the best in rock music, too. It's too bad Brian would never make something like this, ever again. Even SMiLE was a whole different beast, which is why I don't even bother with arguments over which one is better. To me, they both come from two different planets. I will say something rather sacrilegious, though. I think the theremin on "I Just Wasn't Made For These Times" sounds better than the one on "Good Vibrations". I dunno, it just sounds more homely... I mean, I can't even decide my favorite songs on here. On some days, I prefer one thing, on others, I prefer the next.

Is it just me, or does the sped-up Brian on "Caroline, No" sound like Mike, at least for the first few lines?

The greatest pop album ever. Every single song has perfect melodies and lyrics and it's almost impossible pick one song that's better than the other. I can't believe an album like this even exists

I've been a fan since 1970 but I think today I "discovered" Pet Sounds as if I'd never listened to it before. This isn't an album I've ever played a lot, its always been one that requires me being in a certain "mood" in order to get me to play it.  Today, I listened to it 4 times and was newly blown away. I guess I always have taken Pet Sounds for granted.  I think "Wouldn't It Be Nice" is amazing. Each track is wonderful, and somehow today's listens struck home the meaning of the album as a whole like I had never really appreciated before.   Stunningly perfect, start to finish.  What an album!!!

I thought about giving this album a review, but it would be utterly pointless. It would just be a 10/10 for every song and every moment on the album. If I could give this a billion stars, I would.
