Thirty-one years ago today the Beach Boys released Pet Sounds - a slice of beautiful pop music and a milestone of music production. I would've busted out my copy of the Pet Sounds Sessions boxed set, but it is currently in storage in Columbus. So I marvelled at just the album at work today. If you haven't heard this sonic masterpiece, do seek it out. This is one case where the hype is actually justified.
*Maybe I'm overstating its place in music history (but it ranks up there with Revolver).
