    No way! I've got to see that. I'm in shock.
    I've seen them many times back in the day. The best time was at the underworld in Camden. I was stood on a platform at stage level in front of them for the whole gig. I could see alright. People behind weren't so lucky.

    pet sounds is definately one of the greatest albums ever written and recorded. it's also one of the most influential albums ever, pushing the beatles to create revolver and then sgt pepper

    listen to pop music created before pet sounds, and then after, you can see how much music changed. that album signaled the start of maturity in contemporary popular music

    It's always a nightmare to do lists like these as the sounds of that month, year, even decade coupled with your prevailing mood affect things so much.


    When I've been in a fairly normalesque mood, some of the most regularly listended to for me would definately include :-

    • Stevie Wonder - Songs in the Key of Life
    • Radiohead - The Bends (by the smallest of margins beats OK Computer for me)
    • Fleetwood Mac - Rumours


    But then again, in my not unknown ''far out' mode, in the list would definately be

    • Loveless - My Bloody Valentine
    • Blur - 13
    • Radiohead - Kid A

    Mine was a toss up between Pet Sounds and Surf's Up.

    Pet Sounds is by far the better album. I just prefer the edgier sounds of Surf's Up.
