I swear i hear new things every time i listen to this. It's an album that doesn't need to be studied to be enjoyed, but is enjoyed by me the more and more i dig in and research and listen to it. This album can't be spoken of enough. This was the first album I ever bought, not knowing what new thing I would hear on first listen, and the fact remains the same for my 400th (at least). There is so much in this album. One truly cannot be musically educated til they've heard it. This is any musician's dream album. This is the album I would make if I could claim rights to any. This amount of power and beauty and complexity and simpleness has yet to be matched for me. Truly Stunning. 5/5

I agree 100%.

My first "Pet Sounds" experience was last summer when, during an extremly warm night when I couldn't sleep at all, I decided I should give the album a try. I was totally blown away. I never heard anything so perfect in my whole life. I remember going to the window at about 5 or 6 o'clock while "I'm Waiting For The Day" came on. I sat throught the whole song and watched the beauty of the sunrise. To this day, "I'm Waiting For The Day" is my favourite song on the album and also one of my top favourites in the Beach Boys catalogue. Since then I've listened to more and more albums and well, here I am.

Pet Sounds remains to me one of the greatest experience I was ever lucky to assist to. 5/5.

P.S.: Brian was right about the whole "listen-to-it-in-a-dark-room-with-headphones-on" kind of thing. Smiley

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.

^ indeed.

It's a shame that more people don't have this revelation.

The first time I listened to Pet Sounds I had the album on as background music - I didn't really listen to it. The second time I really listened and I was just blown away. I mean I remember standing in my living room staring at the stereo thinking "Why haven't I heard this before??" - When 'I Know There's An Answer' came on I knew that this was the best album I had ever heard.

And I've given the album to friends/family as gifts, and none of them seem to have this same experience. But it seems as if most of us here have had this 'A-Ha!' moment - wonder what makes us different lol

Yep, been there, done that. I really think it makes us better rather than different. Smiley

You know, i've heard him say that, but i've never listened to it in the dark. I know what I'm doing tonight :D and that is a great song, even has a double meaning for you haha. "Waiting for the day" as the sun rises.

Sheesh, how couldn't you give this one a 5? Can't believe their are even few ignoramus's that put 2 or 3. Nothing I can really add that hasn't already been boxed and repackaged time and time again. Timeless. 5.

Just heard the MoFi remaster, BUYING IT NOW.

Sounds amazing, adds a whole new dimension, especially on my expensive speakers. Buy it folks, it's 10000x better than the Mono/Stereo CD

BTW: I'm just talking the CD layer, haven't even heard the SACD!

Yeah, the new stereo one is a bit better. It's not as loud and a bit more dynamic. The mastering takes out some of the excessive reverb from the previous editions. I wouldn't say it's 1000x better, and maybe not worth the price tag if you're not an audiophile, but it's a nice edition to own.

I have to agree; the MoFi stereo version may now be my favorite PS of all. Can't stop listening to it lately.

5/5, amazing, life-changing, great, blah blah.

Today I just picked up the 180 gram 2008 vinyl pressing, the one with original art. First copy of PS for me on vinyl. However, it has papery dust and crap all over it. In addition, the label is cracked, crinkled and messed up. Did I get a bum copy, or is this a common error?

I've finally driven myself to the lying-down-in-the-dark-with-closed-eyes,-head-between-speakers-with-the-stereo-LP and boy, was that the best/most bizarre thing I've ever experienced! As far as I'm concerned now, that is How Pet Sounds SHOULD be heard, and you are missing out if you haven't.

5/5!

Bum copy. Give it to a bum, and demand a refund/substitute!

@mrmoustachioto: definitely the ultimate way to experience Pet Sounds!

First Beach Boys album I ever listened to. Was hooked instantly. The song that stood out for me the most was I Just Wasn't Made for These Times. I don't know why but I felt like the song describes me in some way I can't really explain. Well, it pulled me in the fanbase and eventually I was curious for more.

This is pure genius. I could listen to this album over and over again and I'll never get tired of Pet Sounds. My favorite album of all time!

5 stars (If I could give it more, I certainly would. Wouldn't everybody?)

duophonic is a fake stereo where the channels are the same with a delay in one channel (barely a minisecond) to make it sound stereo.

A good idea for acoustic guitars and vocals, BAD for final mixes.

I heard one of ya'll saying that the Carl & The Passions/Pet Sounds two-fer has two different covers: one is white, and the other is brown. For some musical reason, I want the brown one, correct? Help. No pics on amazon...catalog number or somethin??

I've seen a copy of the brown PS lp on eBay w/o CATP. This copy is MS 2197.
The CATP/white cover PS catalog number is 2MS 2083.

WIBN - 10/10
YSBIM - 10/10
TNM - 9/10
DT(PYHOMS) - 9/10
IWFT - 7/10
LGAFA - 8/10
SJB - 9/10

GOK - 10/10
IKTAA - 8/10
HT - 9/10
IJWMFTT - 10/10
PS - 8/10
C,N - 9/10

Average of 8.92/10 = 9/10 :/ but then again I compare them to each other, not to music in general. I like to differentiate between the songs rather than award them all 9 or 10...
would still give it 5 stars

As my first post in this board I'd like to say that Pet Sounds is the most incredible and beautiful thing that has ever come to my ears, and made me a firm believer in the following quote: Beauty will save the world.

There is no bad day with Pet Sounds. I wish it'd last forever (or maybe a rest every 3 hours for some Friends to jump in and make my life full)
