He formed a temporary songwriting partnership with lyricist Tony Asherwho was suggested to Wilson by mutual friend Daro. Upon hearing what Wilson had created for the first time in the group, particularly Mike Lovewas somewhat critical of their leader's music,  and expressed their dissatisfaction.
Although the record was issued under the group's name, Pet Sounds is arguably seen as a Brian Wilson solo album. Wilson even toyed with the idea by releasing " Caroline, No " as a solo single in Marchit reaching number 32 on the Billboard charts. The song " Good Vibrations " set a new standard for musicians and for what could be achieved in the recording studio.
It sold over a million copies. He gradually became aware of Wilson's reputation as a "genius" among musician friends, a belief that wasn't widely held at the time. Having been introduced to Van Dyke Parks at a garden party at Terry Melcher 's home, Wilson liked Parks' "visionary eloquence" and began working with him in the fall of Conflict within the group and Wilson's own growing personal problems threw the project into terminal disarray.
Originally scheduled for release in Januarythe release date was continually pushed back until press officer Derek Taylor announced its cancellation in May Career decline[ edit ] Home studio, institutionalization, and reduced band involvement[ edit ] We pulled out of that production pace, really because I was about ready to die.
I was trying so hard.
So, all of a sudden I decided not to try any more, and not try and do such great things, such big musical things. And we had so much fun. The Smiley Smile era was so great, it was unbelievable.
Personally, spiritually, everything, it was great.
I didn't have any paranoia feelings. Following the cancellation of Smile, the Beach Boys relocated to a studio situated in the living room of Wilson's new mansion in Bel Air once the home of Edgar Rice Burroughs [ citation needed ]where the band would primarily record until This has been perceived by some commentators as "the moment when the Beach Boys first started slipping from the vanguard to nostalgia.
Wilson's interest in the Beach Boys began to wane. He wanted a break. He had been doing it all too long. Biographer Peter Ames Carlin has speculated that Wilson had self-admitted and may have been administered a number of treatments ranging from talking therapies to doses of Lithium and electroconvulsive therapy during this stay. During this phase, Wilson also collaborated with his father credited under the pseudonym of Reggie Dunbar on " Break Away ", the band's final single for Capitol Records under their original contract; although relatively unsuccessful in the US peaking at number 63 in Billboardthe song reached number 6 on the British singles chart.
And if we don't pick ourselves off our backsides and have a hit record soon, we will be in worse trouble I've always said, 'Be honest with your fans. He also resumed writing and recording with the Beach Boys at a brisk pace; seven of the twelve new songs on the album Sunflower were either written or co-written by Wilson.

Bedroom Tapes, American Spring, and the Radiant Radish[ edit ] Even in those years when he was supposedly in seclusion, Brian came downstairs all the time, this great big guy in a bathrobe. And we went places. Brian and I used to get into his Mercedes and drive over to the Radiant Radishor we'd go to Redondo Beach and hang out with his high school pals, or go look for Carol Mountain.

Brian was as normal to me as anyone else. The trio then spent a month reworking cuts from the Beach Boys' Friends album. Once you've been labeled as a genius, you have to continue it or your name becomes mud.
I am a victim of the recording industry. I didn't think I was a genius. I thought I had talent. But I didn't think I was a genius.
Some of the material has been described as "schizophrenia on tape," and "intensely personal songs of gentle humanism and strange experimentation, which reflected on his then-fragile emotional state.

However, only one fully formed original song from Wilson emerged during the album's nominal recording sessions, the dirge-like " A Day in the Life of a Tree ". He was closely involved in the home-based recordings with co-producer David Sandler and engineer Stephen Desper, and did significant work on more than half of the tracks.

Later that year, he reluctantly agreed to accompany the band to the Netherlands, where they based themselves to record Holland. Although physically present, he often yielded to his vices primarily hashish and hard cider and rarely participated, confining himself to work on "Funky Pretty" a collaboration with Mike Love and Jack Rieley ; a one-line sung intro to Al Jardine's " California Saga: However, Carl Wilson ultimately capitulated and ensured that the suite would be released as a bonus EP with the album.
