"... the apex of the Beach Boys' artistic output ..."
- ClassicRockReview.com

"... this little record didn't change only the course of popular music, but the course of a few lives in the bargain ... nobody was prepared for anything so soulful, so lovely, something one had to think about so much."
- Rolling Stone

" ...lush orchestration, layered harmonies and general mood of tortured romanticism ... both a dramatic farewell to surf music and a boldly unprecedented artistic manifesto ... the zenith of Brian Wilson’s genius, a seamless masterwork that rewards deep, repeated listening ... remains a wonderful collection of songs ... an emphatic A+."
- Entertainment Weekly

Often considered the greatest rock album ever released and certainly one of the most influential, Pet Sounds was underappreciated in the US when it was first released in 1966, despite hitting number two on the UK chart. Eventually Pet Sounds did go on to sell over five million copies in the US and has become one of the most revered of all Beach Boys albums, a landmark recognized both for its groundbreaking production and its music.

"... I was very heartsick. I was very, very, very upset that it didn't sell like I thought it would ... Pet Sounds was something that was absolutely different. Something I personally felt. That one album that was really more me than Mike Love and the surf records and all that ..."
- Brian Wilson

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
