yea i dont think 1 album is enough, although "isnt anything" is quite good as well. Pet Sounds didnt push The Beach Boys over the top did it.

That's because Pet Sounds isn't that good.

Isn't Anything is still better than 50% of everything I have ever heard even though it sounds like it was recorded in a basement on a single mic. In for sure. If an album can still sound superlative 20 years after I first heard it then there is no compunction here at all.

YES I think it's better than 'loveless'. Sue me.

Voted yes because they influenced so many of my favorite artists... although I actually know very little of their stuff, I have a feeling I'd really like it...

Their 2 best albums BY FAR are Isn't Anything and Loveless. Nothing else touches those two!

I'll keep those titles in mind when I am searching for their stuff... my curiosity has been awakened...

I'll abstain from this one.

It's all very well them being influential blah blah blah, but that's no good if I only ever feel the urge to listen to them about once every 5 years.

The best album Kevin Shields was involved in was XTRMNTR, I think Loveless is rubbish.

I still haven't got any of their EP's, grand mistake on my part. Obvious yes, Loveless is often called a masterpiece for very good lesson.
