    Default Pet Sounds V. Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band


    i haven't listened to pet sounds that much but the 2 are often compared.
    i'd say pet sounds is a better composition, by far, but SGT is more exciting and a better listen, which to me is what its all about.

    i think revolver vs. pet sounds is the more fair comparison, and smile vs. pepper. also if you throw in fields/lane you gotta throw in good vibrations on the bb side. as far as the comparison at hand, pepper wins, but it's close.

    on a sort of off topic subject - I was shopping today and was at a place that sells these fleece blankets with designs on them.you know the kind ,they're soft. anyway they had Beatles and then they had Jimi and they had somebody else (maybe the doors) and the Beatles Fleece blanket was 30 bones and the other ones were 20.

    I had to ask myself why jimi was cheaper

    electric ladyland > sgt peppers

    but in the matter of the thread topic

    imo

    sgt peppers > pet sounds

    and moreover

    Beatles > Beach Boys

    Two brilliant albums which I still listen to a lot. However, I'm gonna' have to go with the GOAT, Sgt. Peppers.

    Sgt Peppers for me is the greatest album of all time. For whatever reason I never got into Pet Sounds.

    Sgt. Pepper is one my fav. albums...period.but i voted Pet Sounds for its complexity.

    I don't think Sgt, Peppers is anywhere near as good as Pet Sounds. I just think it's become the hip thing to say. The Beatles in no way had the same effect on vocal backing that the Beach Boys had. We're talking God-like harmonies here. Listen to the end of God Only Knows, You still Believe in Me, or Waiting For the Day. The Beatles just couldn't do that.

    Oh, and for the record, Pet Sounds and Wild Honey are better than any Beatles record ever made.

    This kills:

    brian wilson went crazy with jealousy trying to surpass the Beatles...and he LOST. he responded to Rubber Soul with Pet Sounds, the Beatles responded with Revolver AND Sgt. Pepper, while wilson was pipe dreaming about Smile. know the history.

    George Martin said Sgt. Pepper was an attempt to equal Pet Sounds and he never said they succeeded. Smile was shelved yes, but that was mostly due to Mike Love and Capitol records. Brian Wilson went crazy because he was doing LSD everyday, if we're on the record. Sgt. Peeper was originally supposed to be this big theme album, but only a few of the tracks actually followed the theme. It is vastly different from what Paul had originally intended. But all of this is neither nor there because I seriously doubt you ever listened to Pet Sounds or any Beach Boys record for that matter.
