While Brian Wilson is clearly a musical genius, as has been said multiple times, I just find that the vocals conflict with the music. So Revolver>>Sgt. Peppers<>Pet Sounds>>>White Album.

I have always loved the Beach Boys. Pet Sounds is the greatest.

Default The Beach Boys

One of the greatest American rock/pop bands. Lead by the legendary Brian Wilson these guys put out some tremendous material. The much heralded Pet Sounds stands as one of the greatest albums ever. No one captured teen anguish, fun like the Beach Boys. Some of their greatest songs to me were God Only Knows, The Warmth of the Sun, and Caroline, No. These songs in particular were some of the greatest/saddest love songs ever written. Paul MCartney of The Beatles once mentioned that he believes God Only Knows was the greatest pop song ever written. The more popular songs speak for themselves, classic such as Don`t Worry Baby, Good Vibrations, Little Surfer Girl, Barbara Ann, the list goes on. The intricate layering of vocals by these guys was beautiful. Over the past few years I`ve really come to appreciate The Beach Boys as putting out some of the greatest songs ever. Anyone else a big fan of these guys? Favorite songs?....

When The Beatles released Sergeant Pepper's a year later, it's been said that Wilson sank into a deep depression on hearing it.

He needn't have bothered.

Nowhere near as good as Pet Sounds.

I have never really dug The Beach Boys. I was dissapointed when I heard PET SOUNDS as it is at the top of a lot of critics lists. It has been about five years since I heard it. I may give it another listen when I can be bothered to find a link. Good Vibrations is a great track though.

The same strange logic that has put THE SMITHS vs THE CURE in a pop forum-a bit screwed methinks.

Don't know why , the first I ever heard of either bands were in Smash hits & on kids TV shows in the 80s.

Ask any pop fan about either band and chances are they will not have heard of them. In the 80's maybe, but even then they were slightly off the mainstream. If they are pop then so are THE CLASH and SEX PISTOLS if we apply the same logic.
