No. Pet Sounds is in no way more impressive.

well, it's subjective, so there's that… and one man, coming up with all those revolutionary drum and orchestration parts? pretty impressive to me.

He didn't invent that, he borrowed it from classical music. The innovative part was blending it with pop.

REALLY tough vote.

Let's just agree that 1966 was a mind blowing year for pop music expansion.

There was pop music before 1966.

Then there was pop music after 1966.

A public vote for Pet Sounds for me, although Revolver comes very close.

I prefer Revolver, but Pet Sounds is also very good. It's also sort of a weird comparison. Aside from Paul's Baroque Pop excursions (Eleanor Rigby, Good Day Sunshine, For No One) it's very much a rock/psychedelic album, whereas Pet Sounds is much more of a orchestrated pop album full of love songs. I'd compare PS to Sgt. Pepper before Revolver.

The Smile Sessions slays both of them, though.
