I'm conflicted whether I prefer the stereo or mono version, because the stereo version is fantastic and really opens the songs up, but on the other hand it kinda gets rid of the low-fi charm of the mono version.

I only rated it a 4 because Pet Sounds is a 5. So 4 in this case would be a classic. Pet Sounds is beyond classic for me.

Can someone please quote the one message where a user listened to Fire (Mr. O'Leary's Cow) in her car when it started raining and the song seemed the go on an eternity? I like to read that one but I can't find it anymore in the pile of replies on this topic.
EDIT: It was on the SMiLE topic, sorry.
EDIT: I can't find it on BWPS either. Sad

It's way back in the BWPS topic. Aegir posted it on January 3, 2006: 

One of the first times I was listening to SMiLE, I was driving in heavy pouring rain. My destination was far off, however, I was feeling pretty confident I would get there safely and without any problems... until Mrs. O'Leary's Cow came on! The sirens, the moaning, the feeling of imminent danger! It seemed so long during that listen; I thought it would never end! I wanted to scream!

Just as I was pulling into the driveway, it ended. The ensuing sounds of the opening of In Blue Hawaii comforted me. After "Feel like I was really in the pink", I put my car into park, took out the keys, and walked inside.

5/5

This record made zero sense to me until I took a nap during the day while listening to it. Drifting in and out of sleep at different parts of the album feels like the way it was meant to be heard. Now it's in the top 5 for sure, even Gettin' Hungry which I have a strange affection for, and Woody Woodpecker which manages to take the already terrifying Mrs. O'Leary's Cow and make it even more spooky.
