I agree Wilson is still a great song-writer. As a performer, he is very uncomfortable on stage. In fact, even in the mid 60's, he was very uptight on stage. At the Prince's trust concert, he was a mask of pain, confusion, and sheer terror.

It's funny because Brian W was a start Jock in High School in California. But, a combination of drugs, Lsd use, and an unbelievable abusive and bastard of a father ruined his life. I am proud that Brian is alive, well, and it seems reasonably happy but he has survived a river of pain -

Pet Sounds is a great album. The songs are terrific,

BUT...

the production is hopelessly outdated and overdone. The sound quality isn't too good either. Pity he (or they) didn't do this album some years later (with better recording equipment) and with other arrangements. The vocals are the best ever, but the instruments are too slick.

Have to disagree. My vote goes to Freddie Mercury, every time!

Hmm...well I don't know man. It's really tough to say. Freddie Mercury...wow..the man was AMAZING!!! But I have a good amount of Beach Boys material, and well, Brian Wilson is just phenomenal. Not just with his singing, but the vocal arrangements as well. I mean, the guy's a total genius. I think the B. Boys were really the first ROCK group to make vocal arrangements like that popular. Brian Wilson/The Beach Boys, vocally, rivaled ANYTHING The Beatles ever did. And many times even better.

Oh yes, they're definately better vocally. Just listen to the outro of God Only Knows. It's just perfection.

The Beatles were good too: This Boy, Because... But I think it's almost impossible to better the Beach Boys' arrangements.

I really must get my hands on some Beach Boys stuff - and some Rolling Stones. I think I know where I'm gonna be spending my student loan next term!

Oh, and Ram1 - when I say Freddie, I am referring to the tone of his voice, and the range the guy had. Unbeatable. As in, I am looking solely at lead vocals. I am not talking about harmony arrangements - they are a wee bit complicated for me at the mo, given that I have no-one to sing with . . .
