The Beach Boys – Pet Sounds



The eleventh album from the American rock band The Beach Boys was entitled Pet Sounds.

Released through Capitol records in May 1966 it is heavily considered to be one of the most influential recording made. Featuring the tracks ‘Wouldn’t It Be Nice’ , ‘I Know There’s an Answer’ and ‘God Only Knows’, Brian Wilson had quit touring with the band to focus on recording and writing the material. With interwoven harmonies and a dazzling array of instruments, Pet Sounds signposted a new generation of rock fans and musicians into a more progressive sound.
