1. The Beach Boys, 'The Smile Sessions Box Set'
The greatest rock album never finished receives lavish closure: five CDs of deep studio detail from 1966 and 1967 – with sunbursts of vocal and instrumental eccentricity – as Brian Wilson builds his mosaic-pop symphony about America’s pioneer history. One disc is the best of it all – Smile as it might have been. The outtakes take you into Wilson’s imagination, before it shut down in disappointment.
