Has An Album Ever Made You Physically Ill?

I asked that the album below never be played when I was around ever again, after it made me physically queasy while listening to it. The fact that I was listening to it on earphones did NOT help matters any, either. What album made you feel something similar, if any?

Vena Cava

For the uninitiated, it's a live concept album about the vital functions of a human body slowly dying of an incurable disease. There is no music to speak of, only INCREDIBLY eerie, off-putting and realistic ambient sounds (some achieved through instruments and others through vocal warbling, gargling, etc.) meant to represent each bodily function. For OVER AN HOUR. Nearly 20 years after the fact, I STILL haven't touched it again, and everyone in the house knows not to play it around me. I feel sorry for the poor people who paid to watch this unfold live.
