Album: Pet Sounds.
God only knows why I don’t have the same love for Pet Sounds that so many people whose taste I share and/or respect do, but I don’t. After decades of trying, I’ve given up worrying about it, and you can assume it’s clearly a defect on my part.
That said, I’m not a monster, so I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that “God Only Knows” is probably one of the most beautiful songs ever written, and when it’s on (and to a lesser extent, “Sloop John B”), I fully understand what everybody else gets about what Brian Wilson was up to.
