The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
Whether or not I am remembering any of my facts correctly (I already took the test, what do I need to remember them for?), the fact remains that Pet Sounds is the absolute best that The Beach Boys are capable of. They never released a better group of songs, never performed them more expertly, and never employed such masterful production in anything else they ever did. This album is a masterpiece. Its inability to beat The Beatles is inconsequential now that a few decades have passed. Taken on its own merits, this album is breathtakingly beautiful and technically masterful.
