In Mr. First group to transition from Folk Rock to Psychedelic Rock.
Great job. Impossible task, of course. And it should be number one and revolver number two. That album is far FAR more psychedelic than many of the albums on this list. Brian Wilson going on a total spacial trip and exploring layers of sounds, thereby leading to inspiring some of the biggest albums and artists listed here!
Too bad SMiLE was not released when it should have been too. Not only would the ultimate psychedelic single, Good Vibrations, have been on it, but the rest of it would have been mind exploration to the ultimate degree. Any Donovan album from the s. His Greatest Hits album is an excellent collection of psychedelia.
Lovecraft II is far more psychedelic than their debut album. Some good choices here. Yes — tales from topographic Ocean? Of course it is a difficult job to just put 25, especially 25 albums that everyone would agree on. InnerSpeaker and Lonerism are incredible works of psychedelic music and Currents I think is incredible and unique; Kevin is more than willing to explore and experiment with his style, like truly great artists often do. He composes nearly all the songs, for all the instruments, and records, produces, and mixes them, Nearly all by himself!
Seeing him receive the appreciation, credit and love that he deserves makes me very happy. Again, thank you to everyone that contributed! So glad to have this resource, truly. What about Orzic Tentacles? In my opinion, one of the most influential psychedelic bands from post era. This is your list. Just to name a few…. Agree with so many of the additional recommendations for this list. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club LP. Psychedelic music is a broad category. I see English and American genres, I see progressive, and even power pop in these lists.
I thought the beatles went psych with Sgt Peppers and Mystery Tour is more of the same. Chambers group is a southern gospel group with one of the greatest psych songs of all time. I love the small faces but Itchycoo Park Doubt - Vennart - The Demon Joke (Vinyl there best psych song. To me the greatest psych songs are Piper at the Gates of dawn the long instrumentals and keyboard driven Arthur Brown. Produced by Dave Mason of Traffic. It was a totally psychedelic album.
Please remove artists like Tame Impala, this looks like a publicity for them; they nothing to do with the list, not in generation, neither in quality. Innerspeaker is nothing but quality and is better than half of the stuff mentioned. Currents though is not psychedelic. Tim Blake New Jerusalem The late guitarist.
Christian Boule. Photo Music Sundial,Porcupine Tree. Psychedelic Music is in the eye, or the mind, of the beholder. Pink Floyd, Hendrix and Country Joe would all be on my list. To name a few…. I suppose you should have been there to qualify in making the list: Some of your selections were correct, but some were obscure and others are in a different category. Yours is a great list. I tend to agree that it is far more connected to what they are talking about than any on this list. Glad to see Umma on the page at least.
Same year. Arthur Brown was out therea Mermaid I should turn to beElectric Lady Land, started a triptook you thereand returned you for a nice soft landing. Nice call with the Fraternal Order of the All. Always thought Andrew Gold should have made a second album under that name. This is an obscure one from norway. As it was reviewed in Record Collector shifting from the gentle territory mapped out by Broadcast or Stereolab to exotica and more guitar based nu-psych. Not everything works, but they definitely have a psychedelic mind-set.
Blows Against LP Empire! So psychedelic has to be from the 60s I see. Sorry but some of these are pretty lame. I guess my idea of psychedelic music is vastly different than yours.
While I agree on some of the bands, not really the album choices. Zappa of course. Zappa of course and the long songs on Electric Ladyland by Jimi H. Why do people always feel obliged to include at least one Beatles album in the top-5 of whatever-greatest list? Both Sgt. Good list but I would like to add some obscure masterpieces.
Most of these you can find on Youtube. Their music is FROM fairyland. Very atmospheric. They improved with each release. Difficult to find but posted on Youtube. Did one spectacular album that was an anthem on underground stations. It actually fits a bit more under early pioneering progressive rock.
Members of Yes admitted Touch as a major influence. A tongue-in-cheek concept album on Heaven and Hell. Some of their music can be considered more world music, devotional, or mystical but some is quite psychedelic, Doubt - Vennart - The Demon Joke (Vinyl, all beautiful.
The Zombies- Odyssey and Oracle is really an inexcusable omission on this list. It certainly has to be one of the top I think it qualifies above more than a couple on this list. No Incredible String Band? Fun list and great comments. Just have to say, however, that the list gets one critical thing right: Revolver is a more important psychedelic album than Sgt.
Revolver came out inbefore psychedelia had been mainstreamed into the pop culture. There were innovations in each of these songs that inspired and re-appeared in later psychedelic music. Revolver was the psychedelic vanguard! The list could go on and on, but that the point. He was truly revolutionary; his history is a fascinating read. You missed Twink Think Pink album…classic Psych ! Also the David. Not the greatest list. I am so glad I found this discussion as I love psychedelic music.
I sure have a lot of listening to do now. So, thanks for that. So I lived psychedelia. Fantasy US Version. It has a very trippy mood throughout it. Chris Wood, Traffic, plays on it too.
All of those belong on the list. As I was scrolling down the list I was thinking that the Zombies and Love belonged on the list. Turns out both were in the Top 10…. I have a number of the other albums on the list so can argue with them either. Tip of the hat to Clyde Clifford. I know taste is subjective and there is no right or wrong, but still this list is so flawed. A few of these selections are spot on, but most are absolute garbage and not at all psychedelic, like Cinema Olympia, to name one of the worse tracks recommended here.
The most psychedelic song ever recorded is Mind Flowers by Ultimate Spinach. Yes Ultimate Spinach should be on the essential list, it is at once ultimately psychedelic, cringing lyrically and sonicly mind bending, and A movie and sub B movie all at the same time, Cosmic Man! Gilded lamp of the Cosmos 2.
Visions of Your Reality 3. Jazz Thing 4. Mind Flowers Side B 1. Suite: Genesis of Beauty in four parts 3. Fifth Horseman of the Apocalypse 4. Fragmentary March of Green.

Have you never seen Tubular bells cover? Van Halen — the smoking baby? The Beatles — Abbey Road? Rage Against the Machine — the burning monk? No Rolling Stones or Bob Dylan? The Clash — London Calling? Eagles — Hotel California?
Amy Winehouse cover is nothing iconic. Everyone in the comments took this straight up the ass omfg. If you wanna share your own favorite album covers make your own damn list instead of shitting on the opinion of this persons fav album covers.
Surely it is about the quality of the album artwork rather than whichever artist happens to be your flavour of the month. Obviously whoever wrote this article is an absolute moron. There may be 5 that qualify, but the rest should not be in this list.
I love Purple Rain. It is my favorite album of all time, but to choose that album cover art to represent him is a misstep. I think his most iconic album cover is with Lovesexy coming in at a close second.
I absolutely love album cover art. Please check it out below. Many of those included were featured in the article above. Oh…and the Elvis cover too. So…22 ho-hum album covers and 3.

Latterly a yoga teacher, she went on to marry Chris Jagger, whose brother has an interesting tale of his own… Pink Floyd: The Dark Side Of The Moon One of the most iconic album covers of all time, created by one of the most iconic design teams of all time.
Prince: Purple Rain An unavoidable image and album from the mids through the rest of the decade, Purple Rain introduced the world to Prince as an enigmatic presence ready to disappear at will into the night, all Little Richard pompadour and wry smile, as if in on a joke that no one else could ever hope to understand. NWA: Straight Outta Compton From sound to lyrical content and imagery, Straight Outta Compton defined the emerging gangsta rap genre, and its artwork has gone down in history.
Nirvana: Nevermind Is there anything more punk rock then putting male genitalia on the cover of your album? Beck: Odelay Some album covers are meant to convey deeper musical themes and their imagery is meticulously conceived, while others are just happy accidents.
The Roots: Things Fall Apart At the dawn of the Willennium, the majority of hip-hop album covers were not the optimal vehicle for social commentary. Blink Enema Of The State As the face of the pop-punk explosion, Blink knew their audience well and catered to it accordingly with their explicit cover to their hit album Enema Of The State — much to the delight of their prepubescent male fans. Amy Winehouse: Back To Black As an artist whose personal image is inseparable from her music, it was only fitting that the promising young singer should grace her own album cover.
