The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds 1966 (Capitol) MP3/Flac

Label : Capitol

Value :

The best Beach Boys album, and one of the best of the 1960s. The group
here reached a whole new level in terms of both composition and
production, layering tracks upon tracks of vocals and instruments to
create a richly symphonic sound. Conventional keyboards and guitars were
combined with exotic touches of orchestrated strings, bicycle bells,
buzzing organs, harpsichords, flutes, Theremin, Hawaiian-sounding string
instruments, Coca-Cola cans, barking dogs, and more. It wouldn't have
been a classic without great songs, and this has some of the group's
most stunning melodies, as well as lyrical themes which evoke both the
intensity of newly born love affairs and the disappointment of failed
romance (add in some general statements about loss of innocence and
modern-day confusion as well).

The spiritual quality of the material is
enhanced by some of the most gorgeous upper-register male vocals
(especially by Brian and Carl Wilson) ever heard on a rock record.
"Wouldn't It Be Nice," "God Only Knows," "Caroline No," and "Sloop John
B" (the last of which wasn't originally intended to go on the album) are
the well-known hits, but equally worthy are such cuts as "You Still
Believe in Me," "Don't Talk," "I Know There's an Answer," and "I Just
Wasn't Made for These Times." It's often said that this is more of a
Brian Wilson album than a Beach Boys recording (session musicians played
most of the parts), but it should be noted that the harmonies are pure
Beach Boys (and some of their best). Massively influential upon its
release (although it was a relatively low seller compared to their
previous LPs), it immediately vaunted the band into the top level of
rock innovators among the intelligentsia, especially in Britain, where
it was a much bigger Richie Unterberger
