My Top10 Psychedelic Albums

I'm bored so here's a list of my favourite psych albums
First Utterance

Completely bizarre yet great mix of psychedelia, folk & prog complete with hand-drums that sounds like it should be played at a human sacrifice in a dark forest.
2The White Noise
An Electric Storm

Really experimental early electronica with early Pink Floyd influences, which suddenly changes half-way through to attempt to sound 'dark and evil'. And it succeeds.
Forever Changes

Just a fantastic rock album that doesn't get the attention it deserves. Great melodies, great lyrics, great singing. 'The Red Telephone' is one of my favourite songs ever.
4The United States of America
The United States of America

Crap name, great music. Similar to White Noise but more rock, less electronic.
5The Zombies
Odessey and Oracle

Didn't like it much at first listen, but it really grew on me. A lot. One of the best psych pop albums ever.
6 The Misunderstood
Before the Dream Faded

One of John Peel's favourite bands. Plus their steel guitar kicks ass.
The 12 Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus

Apparently Led Zeppelin's 'Stairway to Heaven' ripps off Spirit's 'Taurus'. Either way this album owns.
8Jefferson Airplane
Surrealistic Pillow

Grace Slick is simply one of the best singers ever. Not much else to say here.
9Pink Floyd
The Piper at the Gates of Dawn

'I want to tell you a story
about a little man if I can.
A gnome named Grimble Gromble.
And little gnomes stay in their homes,
eating, sleeping, drinking their wine.
He wore a scarlet tunic,
a blue-green hood, it looked quite good.
He had a big adventure
amidst the grass, fresh air at last.
Wining, dining, biding his time...
And then one day...
Hooray!' Isn't that reason enough?
10 The Bonzo Dog Band
The Doughnut in Granny's Greenhouse

After attacking jazz in their first album, the Bonzos changed their target to the psychedelia popular at the time. But while parodying it, they still managed to be better than most 'serious' bands.
