Episode 20: The Beach Boys, “Pet Sounds”

November 8th, 2020

Episode 20: Sarah, Eric, and Dave take a look in this episode at the Beach Boys' classic 1966 album, Pet Sounds. For some people, the Beach Boys bring to mind fun, light-hearted songs about surfing, girls, and driving around in cars, but with Pet Sounds, Brian Wilson proved they were so much more than that, influencing the direction of popular music in very significant ways both directly and via those that the album influenced. But we also learn in this discussion that its greatness doesn't guarantee adulation! Tune in for more on that and our other remarkably insightful discussions!

Please let us know your thoughts about the Beach Boys and Pet Sounds at -- and we'd love to hear your requests for future episodes!
