  1. Today! is a fantastic record. I’m going with that one.

  2. My favorite Beach Boys album is Pet Sounds. Hey Stereogum, how about you start announcing when a winner to a contest has been chosen and then naming that winner? Sometimes, not doing so is a real inconvenience, like the way that I have been waiting and waiting to know if I have a reason to go ahead and buy the very limited NIRVANA box set. Also, by never providing any evidence that people win these contests, it raises the question of whether anyone does win them.

  3. How could it be anything other than Pet Sounds? It’s as close to perfection as the Beach Boys will get.

  4. Woops, I meant to post with my Facebook ID:

    ….or Love You…

  8. Pet Sounds

  9. Smiley Smile!

  10. Smiley Smile.

  11. Pet Sounds!! Fo Sho!!

  12. surf’s up! ok not really, it’s pet sounds. but surf’s up is great.

  13. Pet Sounds with All Summer Long coming in a close second!

  14. My favorite Beach Boys album is Friends. I know most people will say Pet Sounds or SMiLE, but it’s Friends for me. It’s Brian’s mellow record, a sort of welcome back from bad times. Through that record, you could tell Brian realized he like writing songs again and had fun. It also has some of the first great Dennis tracks. Perfect for a weekend morning.

  15. The album I find myself listening to most these days is “Holland.”
    It’s such an unusual collection, and the addition of outside musicians and songwriters makes it quite unique. ‘Big Sur’ and ‘Leaving This Town’ are such great songs.

  16. Pet Sounds…until Smile usurps it!

  17. Smiley Smile!

  18. Pet Sounds.

  19. Pet Sounds is amazing. But I’d have to say “Surfin’ Safari”

  20. Pet Sounds, thought I anticipate that Smile is going to be mind-blowing as well.

  21. Pet Sounds is the one for me.

  22. It’s going to be Pet Sounds for sure.

  25. Pet Sounds, definitely.

  26. Smiley Smile.

  27. Pet Sounds for the win!

  28. I’ll go with the conventional wisdom of “Pet Sounds,” but this NYC Tri-State area boy was never much of a Beach Boys fan.

  29. pet sounds

  30. pet sounds. i was afraid you were going to ask something hard, like favorite song.

  31. Surf’s Up, hands down.

  32. I mean… yeah… Pet sounds

  33. Surf’s up!

  34. Pet Sounds…my only criticism…not near enough Mike Love
