The Eye of the Acoustic Storm

Brian Wilson

Each week, a different artist is spotlighted in "The Eye of The Acoustic Storm." Hourly segments of "The Eye" feature the artist's music along with bio information and sound bites.

One of the most influential rock albums of all-time is "Pet Sounds" by the Beach Boys. Brian Wilson masterminded that record in 1966, and then began working on "SMiLE," only to abandon it for 37 years.
In 2004, Wilson's "SMiLE" was finally released to critical acclaim.
