In Chris Smith's book Albums That Changed Popular Music , Pet Sounds is evaluated as "one of the most innovative recordings in rock" and as the work that "elevated Brian Wilson from talented bandleader to studio genius".
Maloney mused: "The songs on Pet Sounds are great, but you have to wonder, given all the hype and mythology and our love of shallow nostalgia, what we mean when we call it a classic or Wilson a genius. Consider what [Frank] Zappa was doing in , to say nothing of Miles [Davis]. Wilson's high reputation is evidence of our obsession with childlike innocence and the victory of boring poptimism.
In a documentary about the album, he commented, "It keeps going back to Pet Sounds here in my life, and I'm going, 'What about this Pet Sounds? Is it really that good an album? I don't know. Pet Sounds is recognized as an ambitious and sophisticated work that advanced the field of music production in addition to setting numerous precedents in its recording.
Although not originally a big seller, Pet Sounds has been "enormously" influential since it was released. In terms of musical conception, lyric content, production and performance, it stood as a landmark in a music genre whose development was about to begin snowballing.

Pet Sounds is often cited as one of the earliest entries in the canon of psychedelic rock. Wilson was the first artist of his stature to write, arrange, and produce an album on the scale of Pet Sounds.

Pet Sounds marked the origins of progressive pop, a genre that gave way to progressive rock. Tidal contributor Ryan Breed cited the album's "non-rock instrumentation strings, brass, Theremin, harpsichord, tack piano , dizzying key changes and complex vocal harmonies" as features that informed prog-pop.

Pepper were the upper-register bass lines, a larger emphasis on floor toms, and more eclectic and unorthodox combinations of instruments including bass harmonica.
Pet Sounds was influential to indie pop musicians in the s  as Wilson became "godfather" to an era of indie musicians who were inspired by his melodic sensibilities, studio experimentation, and chamber pop orchestrations.

It was full of noise. You could hear him talking in the background. It was real sloppy. He had spent all this time making the album, and zip—dubbed it down in one day or something like that. I think a lot of times, beautiful orchestrated stuff or parts got lost in his mixes. Intro of "Wouldn't It Be Nice". The bridge of "God Only Knows". For the basic rhythmic feel of " God Only Knows ", harpsichord , piano with slapback echo , sleigh bells , and strings were all blended together.

It's all been like an explosion for us. It's been said that, although hardly anyone bought the Velvet Underground 's records, those who did ended up being inspired to start their own bands.
