Brian Wilson was always going to be somewhere in this series. As it's his birthday, it might as well be here. A couple of weeks ago I wrote a short, dismissive review of the Beach Boy's Pet Sounds on here. Of course I realised almost immediately that I was selling it woefully short. That just because it didn't float my boat all the way out to sea like for example Love's Forever Changes always does, it doesn't make it and all of the rest of Wilson's best Beach Boys work any less remarkable or world-changing. So I'm listening to Smiley Smile now to make amends. For verification of Wilson's right to be included in this list, I refer you to the picture above.
