Not even close. The Velvet Underground has about half-a-dozen great and memorable songs -- and I'm being generous. Compare that to true "8" or "9" groups like the Beach Boys and Stones, who have dozens.

I'm not sure I believe that. I know Paul McCartney generously praises the album, but the Beatles were already doing amazing albums like Rubber Soul and Revolver. They didn't exactly need inspiration.

Brian Wilson, on the other hand, said he was directly influenced and inspired by Rubber Soul, and that's what led to Pet Sounds.
