Brian Wilson was an awesome musician and song writer. He was one of the first to use multi-tracking for backing vocals. His production abilities were incredible. Awesome talent.
This. This. This. This. This.

Lush, continuous, multipart harmonies instead of the occasional counter melody or single harmony on a chorus, etc.
