my favourite records ever as of November 17, 2017
1The Mars Volta
Frances the Mute


The most mind-blowing and amazing record i've ever heard
2Steve Hillage
Fish Rising


One of the most underrated psych/prog albums ever, masterpiece
3Van der Graaf Generator
Pawn Hearts


Their absolute shattering peak. One of a kind record that will slice your mind, not for the faint of heart
4Todd Rundgren
A Wizard, A True Star


Musical genius, take a trip to the centre of Todd's mind with this record. Remarkable
5Dead Meadow
Dead Meadow


This record legit expanded my consciousness, every other record on this list is there because of this album
6Neu!
Neu!


Such a special record. Prime example of doing less is more sometimes, musically profound
7Pink Floyd
The Piper at the Gates of Dawn


The ultimate psychedelic record and band. Syd was too genius for his own good unfortunately, this is still vividly trippy 50 years later
8The Fugs
The Fugs


Groundbreaking album, early psych also has a punk edge to it, way before either trends had set in
9Frank Zappa
Hot Rats


Of this mad musical scientist's mammoth discography, this is an exceptionally fantastic fusion album with the trademark hints of avant garde
10Throbbing Gristle
D.O.A: The Third And Final Report


Masterwork of ear splitting experimental industrial noise, with a hint of krautrock and synthpop lurking below the surface
11Black Dice
Beaches and Canyons


Another masterwork of noisy soundscapes, this is like power ambient. Tranquil but also exploding with fiery energy
12The Upsetters
14 Dub Blackboard Jungle


This is the definitive Dub record, featuring Lee "Scratch" Perry of course with Augustus Pablo and King Tubby. Get real hazy with this one
13Sleep
Dopesmoker


The most stoned album in the universe. This album will get you high without herb
14Melvins
Lysol


One of the heaviest albums of all time, beware, this may crush your skull into oblivion
15Mr. Bungle
Mr. Bungle


Obscene, twisted, disturbing, amazing. Truly one of a kind band, some kind of carnival from hell funk metal
16Ween
Chocolate and Cheese


Simply an amazing band who rules on so many levels. This record has some of their most fried songs and yet their most beautiful songs
17The Smashing Pumpkins
Siamese Dream


Huge band for me, first one I really connected with. This is still an amazing record, those guitars are so fucked up
18Chelsea Wolfe
Unknown Rooms: A Collection of Acoustic Songs


beautiful, beautiful little album by the dark songstress. Her least dark album and its still very very dark haha
19Nick Drake
Pink Moon


His story is beyond tragic, and hearing his talent makes it even more tragic. One of the greatest singer/songwriters ever
20Love
Forever Changes


Absolute masterpiece of the summer of love. Much more timeless than a lot of the 60s records
21Country Joe and The Fish
Electric Music for the Mind and Body


Another definitive psychedelic record, this one is so chilled out but very very trippy
22King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard
I'm In Your Mind Fuzz


Masterful psych record from a few years back, this band is absolutely nuts.
23Can
Tago Mago


Monolithic experimental opus. Jaw dropper, as most of these are
24Harmonium
Si on Avait Besoin d'une 5ième Saison


One of the most beautiful records ever, French Canadian prog folk, magnifique
25Genesis
Selling England by the Pound


While it doesn't contain Supper's Ready, this record is pretty much flawless. Elegant friggin prog
26King Crimson
Larks' Tongues in Aspic


Their defining moment, even better than the revered In The Court of the Crimson King. powerful
27Kate Bush
Hounds of Love


Brilliant art pop from a harrowing decade of music, she manages to somehow be timeless in 1985
28Talking Heads
Remain in Light


Such a fantastic funky record that completely changes moods as it plays through
29Primus
Frizzle Fry


More funky amazingness, this ones more on the heavy side. Les Claypool is one of the greatest bassists ever
30Big Black
Atomizer


A savage record, noisy, violent, sickening, and really rocks. All about that metallic guitar skronk
31Hella
The Devil Isn't Red


Spencer Seim and Zach Hill are absolute masters, just the two of them blast your skull off relentlessly
32Blue Cheer
Vincebus Eruptum


This is ground zero for heavy metal. These seriously dirty hippies blew everyone's minds back then
33Quicksilver Messenger Service
Quicksilver Messenger Service


The most elegant of the Haight Ashbury bands, they had a level of intricacy others bands didn't have. Early prog, and psych masterpiece
34Kevin Ayers
Joy of a Toy


Definitive whimsical British psychedelia, this is so underrated. Great Canterbury record, this is how Soft Machine would have sounded if he stayed
35New Order
Power, Corruption and Lies


Another synthy 80s album that somehow sounds very modern and timeless for being released 1983, and that in itself is amazing
36 Ultimate Spinach
Behold and See


Psychedelic classic from the original era, this is masterful stuff. Early prog here as well
37Yes
Fragile


Can't leave out a Yes album, this is the first record I ever heard on a turntable. Arguably the definitive prog rock album. In and around the lake
38Cluster
Zuckerzeit


Early synth masterwork, there are some marvelous soundscapes to be found here
