There is too much Bowie in this list. I'm sure we all have the three musketeers to thank!

I feel the same way about all the Bowie on this list as I do about all the Zepp.

I like Bowie, but jeez. Jeez, I say!

Same here, with UF unsurprisingly locked in at #1.

I put Ziggy, Hunky Dory, and Low on mine, kind of the populist choices there, son.

To tell the truth, I like Station to Station less than The Mel, Pfan, and less than surprisingly, The 'Ver, but it's still awesome.

Can he do things? Is he smaht?

(My film class just wrapped up watching Part I and II today, so it's been in the daily film quote rotation for a few weeks)
I'd probably avoid sending him fishing for the time being. He's not like everyone says, like dumb.

He was stepped ovah!

If I ever get a pet, I'm naming him either Herman, Fredo, Atticus, or Lando Calrissian. It's been settled.

That's only the third Bowie album. It's not that bad. Zep has had five placements, the Stones four.

#27 - Beach Boys - Pet Sounds



I like this album, sure. But this is, what, the #187287485744627466470274072074702740747057024052740524705470654th list it's been on?

Maybe the problem is me. This album has legendary status and is highly praised by people who show signs of knowing good music. Heck, just take a look at the list of other albums that people who bought Pet Sounds bought, and you will see taste aplenty. But I don't get it.
I have tried and tried to appreciate this album, but it just bores me. It seems shallow, artificial/insincere, cutesy and repetitive. The boys sure can harmonize and I appreciate that they were doing things that were groundbreaking in their day, but it all comes across (to me and many others) as lacking in feeling and energy - the songs remind me of commercial jingles. I suspect that the album is just massively dated. America produced a lot of incredible albums in the 1960s, but I cannot hear why this is one of them.
Get yourself some Beatles, some Bob Dylan, some Janis Joplin, some Hendrix, some Velvet Underground, some Joe Cocker...and *borrow* a copy of Pet Sounds. Spin Pet Sounds a few times and see if you think it deserves its reputation. If you like it, buy your own copy and adopt it. If you don't, smack it with a rolled up newspaper and shoo it away.

overrated crap.i dont understand wh people love this album so much.it sounds like crap they cant sing.its is just an all around bad album.

This is one of those '60s albums everyone says you need. This is that Beach Boys albums everyone cites as being the brainchild of Brian Wilson's genius. Then you buy it, listen, and... unless you like happen to like the Beach Boys pre-packaged sound...bores the socks off of you. What is it with Beach Boys fans that they buy into this shit that this album is some sort of rock and roll tour de force?! If you're building a collection of "essential" '60s albums, pass this one over and download the two or three important songs on this album in MP3 format. Then you can get bored of it for free then delete the files a few days later, none the poorer for it.

Blah Blah Blah. The most upbeat kill-yourself music ever.

This is an album that I can deeply appreciate (and I do) but I could only enjoy if I had the shotgun in my mouth or whatever, emos. As it is there's only three or four songs I'd really want to go back to.

Oh, yeah, obligatory Baroque and Genius

We haven't seen any Beatles yet, have we? Man, they are just all going to be clumped together near the top.
