Entertainment Reviews:

NME (Magazine) - 10/18/97, p.58
10 (out of 10) - "...THE PET SOUNDS SESSIONS is thunderously anal....a thoroughly bewitching experience....This, then, is PET SOUNDS: The Autopsy; each song's vital components carved out and slapped on the slab for inspection....A masterpiece..."

THE PET SOUNDS SESSIONS: A 30TH ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION was nominated for the 1999 Grammy Award for Best Historical Album.
When it comes to landmark albums, it's hard to beat the Beach Boys 1966 masterwork, PET SOUNDS. Not only was it the direct inspiration for the following year's SGT. PEPPER, and for countless other works by '60s psychedelic groups; its influence was strong enough more than three decades after its release to warrant this 4-disc box set. In the nineties, the orchestral pop of acts such as Eric Matthews, The High Llamas and Epic Soundtracks owed its brass to Brian Wilson's brainchild.
Over the course of four jam-packed discs, PET SOUNDS SESSIONS offers vocal-only and instrumental-only mixes of all the original tracks. In additional to the familiar version of the album, there are also alternate performances as well as alternate and mono mixes, working versions sketched out in the studio, and songs that never made it onto the original release. The box comes with a lavish book filled with photos and inside info on the sessions. This set provides a rare glimpse into the inner workings of one of pop music's most innovative minds, and the process by which he and his bandmates made musical history.
