Pet Sounds is the eleventh studio album by the American rock band the Beach Boys, released May 16, 1966, on Capitol Records. It has since been recognized as one of the most influential records in the history of popular music and one of the best albums of the 1960s, including songs such as ” Wouldn’t It Be Nice ” and ” God Only Knows “. Pet Sounds was created several months after Brian Wilson had quit touring with the band in order to focus his attention on writing and recording.

In it, he wove elaborate layers of vocal harmonies, coupled with sound effects and unconventional instruments such as bicycle bells, buzzing organs, harpsichords, flutes, Electro-Theremin, dog whistles, trains, Hawaiian-sounding string instruments, Coca-Cola cans and barking dogs, along with the more usual keyboards and guitars. ;Although Pet Sounds was met with strong sales abroad, reaching number two in the UK, it charted lower in the US than the majority of the band’s preceding albums, peaking at number ten on the Billboard 200. A heralding album in the emerging psychedelic rock style, Pet Sounds has been championed and emulated for its dramatic and revolutionary baroque pop instrumentation. It has been ranked at number one in several music magazines’ lists of greatest albums of all time, including NME, The Times and Mojo Magazine. It was ranked number two in Rolling Stone ‘ s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list. It was preserved into the National Recording Registry in 2004 by the Library of Congress for being “culturally, historically, and aesthetically significant.
