prog only knows

an advertisement for the UK EMI 
release of the Beach Boys’ 1966 
album Pet Sounds reads:
 
 
THE MOST PROGRESSIVE POP
ALBUM EVER! IT’S FANTASTIC!
 
.
 
in a wikipedia post for the Beach Boys’
1971 album Surf’s Up, John Wetton is
cited (from 2014) as naming it his 
favorite prog album of all time: 
"The summer of ’71 had so many 
musical milestones… but Surf’s Up  
was a revalation….this collection…
shifted my parameters, blurring all the
boundaries of my musical vocabulary….
both composition and production absolutely
floored me.  the whole experience was my nirvana."
