24 Maggot Brain - Funkadelic
25 Axis: Bold as Love - Jimi Hendrix

This album is the definition of psychedelia. There are two ways to listen to it. One while head banging and rocking, the other closing your eyes and immersing yourself in the songs. Both are awesome. The album hypnotizes me, transports me to a faraway land without them stupid drugs. Hendrix, of course, is superb, Mitchell is my favourite drummer (I’m a drummer), and Redding is amazing. My third favourite album.

26 Ummagumma - Pink Floyd
27 Their Satanic Majesties Request - The Rolling Stones
28 Up the Downstair - Porcupine Tree
29 Atom Heart Mother - Pink Floyd
