Released May 16, 1966. Pet Sounds Tracklist. 1. Wouldn't It Be Nice Lyrics. Recorded and released in 1966, not long after the sunny, textural experiments of California Girls, Pet Sounds is widely regarded as the first concept album in the rock genre. The album went on to be extremely influential in the art rock and baroque pop movements and is praised as one of the greatest rock albums ever made. The album even inspired The Beatles to create the critically lauded Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
Pet Sounds was recorded on Scully 4-track 288 tape decks. The only tape effects used on the album are slapback echo and reverb. Sound engineer Mark Linett notes: "to my ears, it sounds more like the plate rather than chambers. Brian devoted some Pet Sounds sessions to avant-garde indulgences such as an extended a cappella run-through of the children's song "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" that exploited the song's use of rounds.
Pet Sounds" is an instrumental composed and produced by Brian Wilson and is the 12th track on the 1966 album Pet Sounds by American rock band the Beach Boys. Originally called "Run James Run", Wilson intended it to be used as the theme of a James Bond film. It was then titled "Pet Sounds", later also becoming the title of the album on which it appears. It is the second instrumental to feature on Pet Sounds, the other being "Let's Go Away for Awhile".
Pet Sounds is the eleventh studio album by American rock band the Beach Boys, released on May 16, 1966. It initially met with a lukewarm critical and commercial response in the United States, peaking at number 10 in the Billboard 200, a significantly lower placement than the band's preceding albums. In the United Kingdom, the album was hailed by its music press and was an immediate commercial success, peaking at number 2 in the UK Top 40 Albums Chart and remaining among the top ten positions for six months. Pet Sounds is the eleventh studio album by American rock band the Beach Boys, released on May 16, 1966.
Released in May 1966, Pet Sounds is now regarded as the masterpiece of composer-producer Brian Wilson and is often hailed as one of the best and most influential albums in pop music. To confirm this, Pet Sounds has been widely ranked as one of the most influential records ever released and has been ranked at in several music magazines lists of greatest albums of all time, including New Musical Express, The Times and Mojo Magazine. In 2003, it was ranked in Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list, (Sgt. Pepper’s came first)
Today, Pet Sounds is regarded not only as the equal of those records but, in some quarters, their superior. Certainly, together with the equally groundbreaking single Good Vibrations, which followed it five months later, it drew up an ambitious road map for rock’s future. It may have been a quantum leap for its composer, fragile ‘man child’ Brian Wilson, but Pet Sounds wasn’t quite a bolt from the blue. Pet Sounds, though, was a sustained act of complex creation, one part work of orchestral ambition, one part proto-concept album. A nervous breakdown on a flight between LA and Houston in December 1964 had prompted Brian Wilson to refocus his energies from touring and promotion to the more enjoyable pursuits of songwriting and the boundless potential of the recording studio. He had been further liberated by his introduction to marijuana and hallucinogenics the following year.
Pet Sounds blew me out of the water, Paul recalled in 2003. First of all, it was Brian’s writing. I love the album so much. Just what is it that makes Pet Sounds so amazing? The vocals include Brian’s most poignant ever performance, on the sublime ‘Caroline No’; Mike Love shines on ‘Here Today’; and Carl Wilson turns in a heart-stopping tour de force, ‘God Only Knows’. If you get a chance, listen to the a cappella mixes of the songs included on the most recent box set reissue of the album.
