Wall of Sound

I've been listening to wall of sound style songs / albums lately. They really sound good from my computer speakers. There are some decent songs, River Deep Mountain High, Waterloo, Be My Baby. Not heavy fair, but decent for a warm summer's day.I've been listening to wall of sound style songs / albums lately. They really sound good from my computer speakers.

Anyway, it occurs to me that three quarters of the Beach Boy's popularity likely comes from how good they sound out of bad speakers. Pet Sounds, although a somewhat decent album, is nowhere near deserving the accolades it receives - until you consider how good it sounds from bad speakers. It's the perfect outdoor album.

When Phil gets out of jail, he'll shoot you too.

Phil is the "Idiot" in question! NOT Stargoat!
