my favorite album
Sloop John B is objectively the best song
Nice try though
Imagine being Mike Love in the Pet Sounds recording sessions and having to be all like "damn, Brian, you fuckin' brilliant, all profound with your pretentious songwriting and horrific cringe-worthy lyrics. I would totally jam this track out with you, both in the studio and in a live show" when all he really wants to do is compose surf rock about babes in your home. Like seriously imagine having to be Mike and not only sit in that chair while Brian sings his disgusting druggy lyrics in front of you, the favorable production barely concealing his high pitch whiny voice, and just sit there, take after take, hour after hour, while he perfected that song. Not only having to tolerate his fat, boy-like visage but his shy attitude as visitors in the studio tells him he's THE MOST TALENTED SONGWRITER OF ALL TIME and DAMN, BRIAN WILSON WRITES LIKE *THAT*?? because they're not the ones who have to sit there and watch his beady fucking aspie face belt out shitty lyrics you didn't even know could be put on paper before that day. You've been creating nothing but a healthy string of surf pop hits with your bandmates and later legal defendant for your ENTIRE CAREER coming straight out of the suburbs in Inglewood. You've never even heard anything this fucking artsy fartsy before, and now you swear you can see the sweat that's breaking out on his punchable autistic face as he begins to spew out another verse, smugly assured that you are enjoying the opportunity to get paid to sit there and work with his "provocative (for that is what he calls the song)" masterpiece, the masterpiece he worked so hard for with Wrecking Crew in the previous months. And then the manager calls for another take, and you know you could out-sue every single person in this room before your lawyers could ask for a pay raise, but you sit there and endure, because you're fucking Mike Love. You're not going to lose your continuing musical career over this. Just bear it. Hide your face and bear it.
Mike Love is a cuck
one of my personal favorites
Pet Sounds is actual masterpiece with mythology around it. Brian Wilson was merely a puppet of some higher spirit of inspiration, something the Beatles aspired to do with technical masterpiece that is Sgt. Pepper but it just doesn't have that spirit. Rubber Soul however maybe did have some of it.
Sgt. pepper have more variety of themes and instruments but tbqh while i really like it, the lyrics,except for shes leaving home, are pretty inferior to any pet sounds song because its lighthearted pop imo.
I'm 28 years old, I'm probably older than the majority of people on /mu/. I've studied music theory in college for five years. I play more than five instruments including guitar and violin. I'm part if a rock duo and I perform monthly at various places. We've been working on an album since 2014. I think I know what I'm talking about.
To all you Pet Sounds fags, how much music theory do you know? What instruments do you play? I'm guessing none.
>its shit because reason
its actually harder to say that something is good since everything can be shit if you dont ignore the flaws.

I'm 29 years old. I taught music theory at the graduate level for five years. I play more than two dozen instruments including alto sax and the erhu. I'm part of a Dixieland jazz quartet and I sell out major venues three nights a week. We've released two albums since 2014. I think I know what I'm talking about.
