It’s already Thursday and I had listened to the Beach Boys Pet Shop boys way back in February during a road trip to Seattle. On this road trip I listened to Marvin Gaye, Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, and the Clash.
Anyway, back to Beach Boys; Pet Sounds.
I have extremely fond memories of the song Kokimo. My Dad used to blast it when he drove us to school about two years before he passed away. I can’t listen to that song without being transported back into his truck singing along with him. Naturally, I thought that I would enjoy the mellow sounds of Pet Sounds.
However, I was not a fan! I found the songs very boring on this album, they did not sound like Kokimo at all. I was itching to skip songs, but I forced myself to listen to the whole album and aside from two songs that are still popular, such as Sweet Caroline and Wouldn’t it Be Nice, I didn’t care for it.
Kind of a short review. Want to read more? Read what these other bloggers had to say about the album!
