Unadulterated runaway pop brilliance. Brian Wilson went fucking bonkers writing this, and it's kind of a small tragedy that this album wasn't released when it was. The Beatles wrote Sgt. Peppers using Pet Sounds as their blueprint, but if Smile hadn't been shelved (thereby allowing Sgt. Pepper's a clear shot to change music and history forever), you can bet your ass music would be completely different today.

SMiLE: The Beach Boy's unreleased 1967 "teenage symphony to God," and one of the most forward-thinking, passionate, and ambitious collections of psychedelic pop recordings you've never heard. According to Brian Wilson, the album was never fully completed, but I'm calling his bluff, because this rivals whatever accomplished hippie music you'd smack a classic rating on.

If this had been released after Pet Sounds, it would be considered one of the best albums ever.

"Because of the attitude of a few mental dinosaurs intent on exploiting our initial success, Brian's huge talent
has never been fully appreciated in America and the potential of the group has been stifled.... If the Beatles
had suffered this kind of misrepresentation, they would have never got past singing 'Please Please Me' and 'I
Wanna Hold Your Hand' and leaping around in Beatle suits."
..................................Dennis Wilson, 1970
If only this had been finished and released in 1967, if only if only.
oh and FUCK YOU MIKE LOVE

My god, the Beatles are a child's play toy compared to this.

It's a shame this was locked away, because it's one of the best albums released this year - almost 45 years later. Incredible vocal harmonies and rampant experimentation make this a must hear.
