first_imgEasily recognizable as one of the best albums of all time, The Beach Boys’ opus Pet Sounds celebrates its 50th anniversary today. Released on May 16th, 1966, Pet Sounds marks a distinct departure from the band’s light-hearted beach-themed music, as mastermind Brian Wilson steered the band down more complex channels of music.The album is heavily influenced by the psychedelic culture, perhaps even inspired by the contemporary Beatles records. Producer George Martin even said that “without Pet Sounds, there would be no Sgt. Peppers,” though the British band was certainly well on their way to hyper-produced albums when Pet Sounds was released. The pure sonic exploration of Pet Sounds is unrivaled by any other release in the Beach Boys’ catalog, as Brian Wilson spent countless hours producing the album, utilizing unique sound effects like Coke cans and piano strings throughout the release.With all of this in mind, Wilson himself took a moment to share his thoughts on the album’s milestone. Wilson said, “Today Pet Sounds was released 50 years ago. I just can’t believe it. I recorded it to bring love to the world and I’m honored to be performing it in so many countries and cities in 2016. My current band is just amazing. They are great singers and the very best musicians who replicate live every single show what I did in the studio 50 years ago! I’m just blown away by what I hear!”The post was accompanied by the following image:Here’s to another 50 years of Pet Sounds! Listen to the album below:last_img read more
