I've just put this CD on again.  It took a while to get into (as all "good but weird" albums do), but I certainly like it now.  Surf's Up, Our Prayer, etc are just beautiful.

I saw that documentary when it shown on the BBC at the time the CD was released.  Lots of singers making harmonies, playing whistles, and making farmyard noises whilst Brian sat sulking in the corner.

I much prefer "Smile" to "Pet Sounds", which I played last night.  The whole world tells me I should love Pet Sounds, as it has wonderful harmonies, and captures the innocence of youth, etc.  But I just don't get it.  Apart from the singles, the songs are dull.  But I feel I'm the only person in the world that doesn't like it.
