Question of the day

Does being older than "Pet Sounds" somehow make one timeless, too? Released 46 years ago today, I had heard bits and pieces of this in my youth, but only really discovered it during my second year in Japan. When I did, I listened to it every day for at least six months. I guess if I'm honest, there haven't really been that many albums which genuinely changed my ideas about music forever, but this one is very near the top of the list. At the time, I found it somehow sustaining on some deeper level, and I guess that's probably the best tribute an artist can have.
