SMiLE v. Pet Sounds

Brian Wilson, in one of the interview excerpts in the 2-dvd set Brian Wilson Presents SMiLE:

Well, Pet Sounds everybody liked of course. People love Pet Sounds. But if you want to put it on a scale of 1 to 10, I'd give Pet Sounds a 4 and SMiLE a 10.
Of course, if you already think of Pet Sounds as a 10, that makes SMiLE a 25!

I thought he said "7" for Pet Sounds and "10" for SMiLE? They're both tens, to me, anyway. Although I share Dennis' enthusiasm for Smile, "will make Pet Sounds stink!"

Brian says "4" in the March 2004 interview (at the 6:39 mark). But Brian's responses are so variable — I wouldn't be surprised if he were to give different numbers elsewhere.
