Shit, I almost forgot about the heaviest album/song I've ever heard: Dopesmoker by Sleep. 63 minutes of pure sludge.

Listen to "When Rotten Ideas Break Free" by Grief or anything by Corrupted.

Missing a few on this list for the "tranquil" side of things. (It's a pun, get it?) 1) Sigur Ros: I think "( )" is my prefered altered state soundtrack. "Agaetis Byrjun" is a pretty intense album but not quite the whole package. 2) Eluvium: Instrumental music, piano-centered. Think George Winston or Philip Glass for 20-something's. "Copia" is a great start. 3) Radiohead: "OK Computer" if you've got a killer soundsystem or plan on wearing headphones because it was made to be heard in stereo. I have probably listened to the album well-over a few hundred times since it came out 10 years ago but "heard" it for the first time at a planetarium lazer show up in Portland a few years ago. I left with my hears ringing the hardest in my life and with a brand new appreciation of the album. 4) Mogwai: Albums of pure noise or Sigur Ros minus the alien vocals. Too bad their albums can't match their live sound. 5) Portishead: "Dummy." Nothing more to say. While I'm a big fan of stoner rock I've never been able to equate it to being in an altered state. Maybe uppers would work better.

Good adds on Mogwai and Portishead.

Four Tet should also be on that list.

Sigur Ros is great, they're one of my favorites for this application.

Some other good ones:

Band of Horses- The Funeral and I Go To The Barn Because I Like The

Explosions in the Sky
Any song really, though I find their newest one weaker. The problem with Explosions is that it does all sound really similar, but taken individually the stuff is great.

Slightly Stoopid- Wiseman, Collie Man, and Closer to the Sun
are my favorites, but it's all good for when you want a chill, less trippy mood.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Not extremely familiar with their discography, but I got some very good bootlegs off of archive.org. The files I have just have a date and a venue.

Everything I listen to takes me somewhere. Music is my favorite form of escapism.

I agree with pretty much everything that's been posted, but this strikes me as a weird choice, and not just because it's a weird choice, but because I thought of it when I was posting my initial list. I saw them at Black Cat and it was a completely different experience than their record; very dirty and was actually kind affecting for me, blissed out on about eight PBRs.

I'd like to split hell wide open by recommending the screwed/chopped version of motherfucking "Rainbow Colors" by Three Six Mafia. Get some decent speakers with sub-woofers and enter into the head space. When complete, move on to "Half on a Sack." Segue into "Why Don't You Eat Carrots?" by Faust.

That would be quite the mindfuck.

You could round it out with some Acid Mothers Temple, "Lysergic Communion" by motherfucking WARHORSE, and "Der LSD Marsch" by Guru Guru.
