Would I be out of line saying that TLOS is just as good as "Pet Sounds"?? I love them both but I find myself listening to TLOS more often.

I won't get into a debate of TLOS vs Pet Sounds  as they are very different to me ( not to mention made in different Times) but I will say it took me a couple Months to pry TLOS out of my car cd player when it came out and it finds it way back there ( as well as on my mp3 player) quite often still.
And I love Scott's lyric of "Never Destroy when you can Create"

I don't think you're out of line at all. I agree with you. Music is very subjective. What one person loves another might not. No right or wrong to it. Some might consider it blasphemy for someone to state an opinion that they consider something other than Pet Sounds or SMiLE as Brian's best work. We are all entitled to our opinions. All I know is that I never listen to Pet Sounds in its entirety. When I want to hear SMiLE, I watch the DVD rather than just listen to the CD. To me, SMiLE is something better enjoyed by watching it performed versus just listening to it. As far as TLOS, I both watch the DVD and other times just play the CD. If it came down to it and I could have only one of these three title's I would choose (gasp!) TLOS hands down.

oohhh mannn...tough call... I LOVE TLOS! I play it all the time! But I also love PS..... oh wait you said as good as...then YES I can agree with that for sure! I love it!  But like it has been said music is so subjective, that will depend on one person to the other...something I tried telling a friend of mine but will never listen to me!

ok . . bits of pet sounds i don't like . . I don't actually like the title track that much, prever the version without the lead guitar overdub.

I don't like the mono production, at times there is stuff that gets lost I'm sure.

Sloop John B, although a great cover and arrangement doesn't fit on the album really

Dislike the cover artwork . .

As far as listening to albums, I rarely do, I tend to play tracks, or make up my own lists. unless . . . I'm listening to Holland, then i'd need to listen to it in its entirety.

For many years I had a copy of "Pet sounds" with me in various formats its as if I was spreading the "gospel according to BW' and then when I heard TLOS for the first time i was just amazed that we could get another gem from Brian this late in the game, I LOVE Pet sounds always will but now there are two gems in the BW cannon that we can enjoy and at times i seem to enjoy TLOS a bit more depend on the mood im in.

Great to see some support for "TLOS", while most of the world are back in "Barbara Ann" land!  One can't deny the greatness of "Pet Sounds", but after more than forty years of familiarity I'd with it, I'd be far more likely to play "TLOS" these days. That said, Brian's Band helped to bring fresh life and spirit to "Pet Sounds" and I wish we could have a DVD of one complete concert, rather than the "cut and paste" version that exists.

Pet Sounds will always be my favorite but I have more TLOS songs on my ipod Beach Boys playlist than Smile.

I love and respect Smile but I listen to TLOS. That Brian could be that creative and pull off that record at his age is amazing. Anybody listen to the last few records by Paul McCartney, Paul Simon, or Bob Dylan? The song quality on their last albums doesn't even come close to Brian's latest original work.

No comparison. Pet Sounds will be played as long as people have ears. TLOS is.....ok. Scott Bennett Re-imagines Brian. It worked better live but as a listening experience, it lost it's appeal for me almost overnight.
