What is your favourite non-electronic psychedelic music? Non electronic doesn't mean there mustn't be any synths in it, just not electronic in the traditional sense, well, you know what I mean.

 

For me it's without a single doubt "Tiamat - Wildhoney". I just gave it another spin the other day after over a year and was completely overwhelmed by it's dense soundscapes and rich atmospheres. I had totally forgot about it.This album has shown me places no other music was ever capable of bringing me to, dark places, divine places, places of mystery and wonder... places to get lost in. After this album every other music will sound pale, shallow and uninspired, to me at least.

 

Anyway, to cut it short, can you name some of your most admired psychedelic albums? I urgently need some more music like that... :posford:

For me it's Marillion - Missplaced Childhood, it's an awesome psychedelic pop album from the 80ies. The singer has an amazing voice and the music is just divine. The most famous Marillion track is on that album: Keyleigh. Most likely the only track anybody here might know.

I'm pretty shure you'll like Tristania - Widow Weeds judging by your musical taste.

I felt just as excited about it as you about this one.

I'd say electronic music is more about structure then anything. Theres plenty of rock stuff that is most defenitly rock that has synths in it (Someone mentioned tangerine dream).

 

I think I might check out Tangerine dream... I'm a huge dimension 5 fan and from a few listens Dimension 5 looks like a very much reformed version of it. Any comments about their best albums or eras etc?

wow, shit, that's quite a lot to check out. I already knew the usual suspects like Pink Floyd, Tangerine Dream and what not. But there're quite some new ones to me, will check them out. Thank you all :)
