Definitely one of the greatest albums of the 20th century.
Besides Black Sabbath's "Paranoid", Pink Floyd's "Dark Side Of The Moon", and Iggy & The Stooges' "Fun House", I'd say that "Pet Sounds" is one of the greatest soundtracks for adolescent life you'll ever find. Even I as a teenager today can relate to the lyrics, albeit the fact that this album is over 40 years old.
I dare you to find an alienated teen that isn't able to relate to "I Just Wasn't Made For These Times". Well, considering the fact that most teens are into the latest no talent ass clowns who are currently plaguing the airwaves, I bet you'll have to get him or her to actually listen to the lyrics without becoming bored first. I didn't believe the hype surrounding this album until recently, mostly because I thought of the Beach Boys as a 60's surfer rock band (I've heard most of their singles throughout the years). Hopefully 100 years from now, it will be listened to and appreciated for its greatness.
Brian Wilson is a genius!
Pet Sounds is a masterpiece.
