USA, 1966, baroque pop
The Beach Boys – Pet Sounds: I’ve always had this weird feeling about this album, and on this most recent listen, as I’m relaxing on the sofa, just floating away on the music, I said to my wife, “I don’t know why, but these songs always feel like they’re coming from above. Not like they’re heavenly or divine. I don’t know.” To which my wife replied in her usual perspicacious way, “It’s coming over the PA system.” Holy crap. That’s it.
