Music for altered states. - Page 5

post #61 of 102
A friend once told me that the best trip he ever had was at a Meat Beat Manifesto show. Actually it was a triple bill with Supreme Love Gods, MBM, and 808state.

He can't get out of his head MBM's performance of "Circles" (from Satyricon).

Or that he was convinced he saw vampires at the show. He said that was really weird.

And he cries nearly every day thinking about how he was so messed up that when 808state came on, he and his friend left the show because the "in crowd" showed up and ruined the vibe. While they were on the tour supporting Gorgeous, which is generally not considered their best album, it does contain any number of gems such as Stormin' Norman, Timb Bomb, and One in Ten which would have sounded great filtered through all of that acid.

That's what he tells me anyway.

It's probably too Old Skool Columbian Gold for this crowd but besides being a great album, the movie reveals the meaning of life if you put the right mushrooms on your pizza.


From the moment I opened this thread I was wondering how long it would be before one of us old guys mentioned Pink Floyd. It had a pseudo-Godwin's Law inevitability. Personally -- based on the second-hand reports I've heard about the experience of being in one of those "altered states" -- I'd put "Obscured By Clouds" first, and perhaps also "Meddle" and "Animals" before "The Wall". But to each his own.

A case could also be made for the great Roky Erickson tribute Album, "The Pyramid Meets The Eye", or some of Roky's own stuff.

As an old guy you should not be participating in a thread that indirectly encourages drug use. I'm very disappointed!

JUST SAY NO!

+1. From a band that made a record 'Taking Drugs to Make Music to Take Drugs To'. How could you go wrong? 'Think I'm In Love' is self-deflation at its best.

Altered states calls for some intense IDM; Autechre and Venetian Snares or psy such as Schpongle and Wizzy Noise. Mellowing out to Biosphere, Eluvium and Harold Budd.

So they tell me anyway.

This is sort of odd, but I have to say that The Reminder is going down pretty smooth right now.

Animals and Obscured by Clouds are both great albums, but The Wall's availability as a movie makes for a truly mind-blowing experience. I had listened to the album dozens of times, but never appreciated its value as a commentary on the human experience until I watched the movie in an altered state. The things I felt while watching it were incredible, particularly because the substance I was on was fairly mild.

On somewhat of a side note, the scene with the marching hammers left me sitting in the fetal position rocking back and forth. I still get seriously bad vibes from that scene (and the song that was playing during it) every time I see/hear them.
