Time To Get Manly 58: The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds

I randomly ran across a list of what Esquire magazine claims are "The 75 Albums Every Man Should Own." In this series of posts, I'll explore these manly, manly sounds.

The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds

It seems reasonable for each and every man's record collection to feature Pet Sounds, since it has been called "the greatest album of all time" about a bajillion times. Incredibly, it was created by an all-consumed musical madman who actually set out to make the greatest album of all time. Talk about accomplishing your goals! Sure, Brian Wilson then basically went insane and sat in a sandbox in his bathrobe for years after that, but perfection comes at a price, people.
