Pet Sounds is the eleventh studio album by American rock band The Beach Boys, released on May 16, 1966. It initially met with a lukewarm critical and commercial response in the United States. The album was produced and arranged by Brian Wilson, who also wrote and composed almost all of it's music. For Pet Sounds, Wilson's goal was to create "the greatest rock album ever made". Pet Sounds is regarded by musicologists as an early concept album that advanced the field of music production, introducing non-standard harmonies and timbres, and incorporating elements of pop, jazz, exotica, classical, and the avant-garde. A heralding work of psychedelia, the album furthered an aesthetic trend within rock by helping it transform from dance music into music that was made for listening to, elevating itself to the level of art rock.
