The Beach Boys Today! is absolutely among Brian Wilson’s strongest productions and clearly, production-wise, points the way to the masterpiece Pet Sounds. The album is full of great tunes, with a lead vocal from every Beach Boy except Carl Wilson. In terms of Beach Boys canon – or rock canon in general – The Beach Boys Today! is a MUST.
Released in March 1965, The Beach Boys Today! marked the first time the group experimented with the “album-as-art” form. The tracks on side one feature an uptempo sound that contrasts side two, which consists mostly of emotional ballads.

Today! was the album that triggered the race between the Beach Boys and Beatles to produce the best popular music of the consumerist age. Obviously, the Beach Boys won, however much their Smiley Smile album failed (had god on their side).
The Beach Boys’ collaborative approach to writing and recording their new music is evidenced throughout That’s Why God Made The Radio, with all of the band members participating to create its glorious harmonies, lyrics, and arrangements.
