Both monumental lp's recorded in 67 & both ground breaking in their own way.....which do you feel is the better "concept" record?
For my money, I am "all in" on SMiLE by the Beach Boys (finally released 44 years after Pepper....thanks Capitol!).
The Beach Boys & Van Dyke Parks just "up'd the anti" on SMiLE in a number of different ways.
1st - overal concept is consistant throughout SMiLE (charting the musical course of americana & that's just on the surface)
2- The brilliant arrangement, composition & complete musical fireworks as provided by the "wrecking crew"
3- The most out of this world harmonies by the beach boys to date
4- The recording techniques being used by Brian Wilson were at the time & to this day are"ground breaking"
& this coming from someone who likes "Sgt Pepper"
