The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators is the debut studio album by the 13th Floor Elevators. The album's sound, featuring elements of psychedelia, hard rock, garage rock, folk, and blues, is notable for its use of the electric jug, as featured on the band's only hit, "You're Gonna Miss Me", which reached number 55 on the Billboard Charts with "Tried to Hide" as a B-side. Another single from the album, "Reverberation (Doubt)", reached number 129 on the Billboard's Bubbling Under Chart.Wikipedia
Brilliant from start to finish - exactly what I joined this list for. An absolute gem that i’d have never otherwise known about.
Pretty solid psychedelic rock. Surprised I’ve never heard of the band before.
beautiful album - 10/10 I’m a slut for acid rock
Very samey, hated that sound effect they used on most songs.
La conception de cet album s'est faite dans des conditions extrêmement particulières, c'est pourquoi je le note avec indulgence. Les 13th Floor Elevators choisissent en 1966 le studio du douzième étage (13th Floor aux USA) d'un immeuble pour l'enregistrer. Après avoir installé la batterie, les membres repartent chercher les autres instruments sans remarquer que la fenêtre est ouverte. Problème : l'immeuble en question est encerclé par des conifères habités de pygargues à tête blanche. Une branche voit d'ailleurs son extrémité s'arrêter juste sous la fenêtre en question. À leur retour, les musiciens ne remarquent rien de particulier et commencent la session d'enregistrement. Très rapidement, des petits crissements se font entendre. Le chanteur et le guitariste se retournent alors vers le batteur qui ne semble pas comprendre d'où peut provenir le bruit. Ce dernier continue donc de tambouriner sur sa grosse caisse. Quelques minutes plus tard, il sursaute en apercevant les gros yeux blancs d'un pygargue le fixer. L'animal est coincé dans la caisse qu'il est en train de castagner. Il prévient alors les autres avec un jeu de regard, et, tout en continuant l'enregistrement de l'album, se lancent dans une opération de sauvetage de l'animal. ♫ But what's gonna stop me, baby ? ♫ chante le leader tout en se saisissant d'un sécateur. ♫ Am / Dm / Am / Em ♫ joue le guitariste au moment de jeter des graines à l'animal. ♫ BAM ! BAM ! BAM ! BAMMM ! ♫ continue de bourriner le batteur pour les besoins de l'enregistrement et au grand dam de l'oiseau. Une dizaine de morceaux plus tard, une brèche est ouverte dans la grosse caisse et l'on entend le "FLAFLAFLAflaflafla...." du piaf qui s'en va retrouver sa liberté, merveilleusement capté par l'outro de l'album.
Cet album a été enregistré dans des conditions exécrables. En effet, un volatile est venu se glisser dans la caisse claire du batteur du groupe. Ceci va complétement venir gâcher la prestation proposée sur cet album. Dans la première partie de l'album, les différents membres du groupe vont venir tenter d'amadouer le volatile, à l'aide de différents appâts. Le volatile répondra par de nombreux cris et gloussement, mais ne se décidera pas à sortir de sa cachette. Dans la seconde partie de l'album, le batteur tenta d'utiliser ses baguettes afin de doucement pousser le volatile vers la sortie de la caisse, mais là aussi, tout ce qui sera obtenu sera des cris et gloussements de la part du volatile. Enfin, la troisième et dernière partie montre un groupe résigné à accepter la présence du volatile, qui fait désormais partie intégrante du groupe et de leur enregistrement musical, pour le plus grand bonheur de tous les ornithologues.
Utter crap. Hate the jug sound
That amplified jug is wild
Awesome. Can't believe I never heard about this band.
Really cool psych surf garage gem from 1966, almost an entire year before the psychedelic era of rock was in full swing. The sound is here and the instrumentation is spot on, with some of the lyrical cadence reminding me a bit of Zappa’s first album from this year “Freak Out”. I would definitely consider this essential listening- glad I finally got to hear it beyond “You’re gonna miss me”. Go enjoy!
didn't know an electric jug existed before this. I can tell this record was really innovative and I enjoyed it a lot.
So good. Plenty of that dirty 60's sound, strong vocals, and amplified jug. Roller Coaster is my favorite of the album.
Feral for 1965. Texas menace with amplified jug. Some hate Roky's vocals, but they are philistines.
This is great. Greasy, salty surf punk that rolls right over you like a California breaker. Them with Dick Dale on lead guitar.
Prefs : You're Gonna Miss Me, Roller Coaster, Splash 1 (Now I'm Home), Reverberation (Doubt), Fire Engine, You Don't Know, Kingdom of Heaven, Monkey Island, Tried to Hide Moins pref: Don't Fall Down (still good)
Any album with an electric jug is at minimum a 4.4 and then they make the rest up with fantastic songwriting. There’s only 1 mediocre song on the whole album (Monkey Island) everything else are classics. I just wished they hadn’t called it psychedelic cause it’s not really. The album has more in common with stoner/ garage/ punk rock than it does psychedelic music. Although it was released in 1966, the same year Tomorrow Never Knows came out, so was there at the very start of the psychedelic movement. I’d forgotten about the sound-quality which is a shame. It sounds cheaply produced with the sounds muffled and distant. But I LOVE this album. All the songs sound different and exciting, the songwriting is excellent and there was nothing like this in 1966. Maybe my favourite album cover of all time too. 5 stars.
Not as trippy as expected, but still good!
Este disco es una FUMADOTOTOTOTOTA que imagino está aquí por ser un magnífico exponente del "rock ácido" Pero el disco me agradó bastante y con gusto lo volvería a escuchar. Agregué una canción a mi lista: "Tried to hide", que por cierto me recordó al estilo de “Bad Boy” de los Beatles, y no creo que sea coincidencia.
Beyond unique, too canoncial for less than 4 stars but a little too loose and sloppy for 5.
This feels so authentic to the era it’s paying homage to that i thought it actually belonged to it. A lot of Mick Jagger inspired vocals.
La pura psicodelia de los 60s. Debo aceptar que los sonidos vocales en forma de instrumento (tucutucutú) son extraños al principio pero si te logras acostumbrar, quedan perfecto en el viaje de esta banda. Songs: Reverberation, Fire Engine, Monkey Island, Tried to hide
really enjoyed this album
Recordando un poco a Moby Grape, los Doors y a Hendrix como los puntos psicodélicos que han tocado hasta ahora creo a mi gusto este es el mejor. Tienen un punto muy interesante de psicodélico pero con un sonido mucho más crudo, con una guitarra que va más fuerte, una voz que puede dejarse llevar a gritar realmente con desaire y un botellón que extrañamente persiste durante todo el disco pero que, aunque pudiera llegar a ser cansado, da cierto sentido de taladrado en la cabeza y que simplemente tengo que aceptar, me da hasta gracia las agallas de dejarlo en el mismo ritmo canción tras canción. Las letras dentro de lo esperable en su imaginario lleno de LSD se me hacen mucho mejor escritas que por ejemplo cualquier cosa de Morrison, mucho más sinceras y aterrizadas. No llega a 5 porque aunque a mí se me hace simpatico creo que el botellón puede trabajar en su contra y porque no es tampoco un género que pueda escuchar una y otra vez; a pesar de eso se me hace de los mejores grupos (a pesar de que tienen creo solo 2 o 3 discos y duraron un par de años) en rock psicodélico, incluso a mi gusto pudiendo llegar casi saltándose un paso a ser también rock ácido.
I like these guys - heard them for the first time years ago when watching that Foo Fighters documentary that tracked roots of music.
Cool psychedelic rock. Awesome that this was the first!
Enjoyed a lot-wasn’t as “Trippy” as I was expecting. Good vocals. Got some Jefferson Airplane vibes
Pretty cool to listen to the one of if not the first psychedelic Rock records. I like it. What is that wobbly sound, is that the electric jug?
Super fun, trippy, and creative psychedelic rock album! I love this sound from the '60's!!
Really good example of 60s psychadelic pop
A very 60s album, and a good listen overall. Definitely a band who's discography I expect to listen to more. Forgot to record favorite/least favorite songs.
Classic weird psychedelic rock. Some of it rocks, some of it wallows, some of it is just plain strange. A favorite, for sure.
enjoyed this much more than I thought I would
Strong Animals vibe out of this one for me, minus Eric Burdon perhaps. Interesting sounds along with that standard 60’s guitar. Will listen again.
This would make an excellent soundtrack for a 1960's movie. Some really good riffs
I love 60s music, and this is quite enjoyable.
When I read the band had conducted sly sheepish LSD trips during recording, a lot started to make sense. I didn’t mind it at all. That weird noise throughout is someone making noises into an old jug…
Menoo oli. Nopeita ja lyhyitä, puhutteli mua tämä levy. Loistava
Edgy for the time
Nothing else on the album approaches the brilliance of You're Gonna Miss Me; a potent blast of guitar rock gold. The rest of the album stakes the bands claim as the FIRST psychedelic rock band with the amplified jug playing giving them a totally unique and somewhat spacey, ethereal sound. A fine album that all should hear at least if you have even a passing interest in 60s guitar rock. 4 🌟
Not sure what I was expecting, but this is excellent. Jefferson Airplane and the Moody Blues had a trippy kid.
Still undecided on the Electric Jug but a cut above for intensity and passion
"You're Gonna Miss Me" is a great leadoff track and it absolutely belongs on "Nuggets." It might even be the best song on that whole compilation. If you like that kind of psych garage music (I do too) then you'll dig this. The rest is more of the same but not as amazing I guess. Put this on at a party and you're good to go. 3 1/2 stars rounded up to 4.
Some psychedelia, I'd imagine.. "You're gonna miss me when I'm gone" does some really interesting things. The unique sound of what some research tells me is known as an electric jug adds some weirdness and otherworldliness to the track that works really well. Onto the second track and there's a total reframing of the music, like they drop a cog and hammer down the accelerator, changing lanes and blasting past the caravan they'd been stuck behind for four miles. Track three - splash 1 - is a bit of a let down - too slow and not really in keeping with the album. Reverberation picks the pace back up again. I think the age of the recording might be a factor here - but the bass sounds muddy somehow. It could be a production choice, but it just doesn't quite fit. Overall, this is a great album - pioneering, but immediately placed to its time. It should be 4 tracks shorter, but overall I enjoyed it.
Must've been a huge influence on The Brian Jonestown Massacre, they sound just like the 13FEs. This preformed really well as a break from the other stuff I've been listening to. Though I wouldn't be able to sit through this again without dropping acid and frolicking naked in a wheat field at sunrise.
Enjoyed this album a lot!
Landmark psychedelic rock album.
Great album, love the sound and energy.
I’ll need to listen to this again
Listened to the half of the songs. Went too repetitive at the end (I see people mentioning electric jug in the comment, I guess that was the sound that annoyed me). But it was worth listening too this. Will keep it in my playlist
How in the world did I never hear about these guys before now? Read a bit into them and learned they are credited with creating psychedelic rock, and were an influence on many different artists. Giving this 3 stars for the music. Just not one of my favorite genres of music. I'm giving a bonus star, though, because of the influence they had on other musicians.
Always love this era of psychedelia, and what these guys may lack in pure songwriting like the Beatles or the Byrds, they make up for with raw grit. Cool stuff.
Well this was a really cool discovery. Nice blend of melodic tunes balanced well with some grit and trippiness. Sounds bit dated sure, but for 1966 very much ahead of it's time, and certainly predates many similar sounding yet much higher acclaimed artists.
Creative and pretty funky to listen to loved there best songs but some ar e a little too experimental for me
Really great, enjoyable psych rock. I’d never heard of this but would absolutely revisit it.
Peak '60s. This is the music my parents got high to while my grandparents downstairs worried about the fate of the next generation. I love it even if the \"electric jug\" is waaaaay overused.
Electric jug. Freak it.
A very important album for rock music and also holds up very well. R.I.P. Roky Erickson
1 gram av Schwag tack!
So that’s what an electric jug sounds like. I think this stood out as a bit more out there than some of the other seminal psychedelic rock albums I’ve heard so far, which made it more interesting. 7/10
I'm a sucker for Psychedelic Rock. Čuo sam za njih tek kada sam čitao knjigu o bendovima koji su napravili promjene u glazbi, ali nisu okusili slavu. O svakom bendu po nešto, i eto bio je i ovaj bend - zajedno sa dosta njih i drago mi je što sam posudio tu knjigu. Nažalost ne znam više kako se zvala, ali je bilo nešto što ja volim.
Jako ekscentričan album
One of the greatest garage rock albums of all time, as is Easter Everywhere, you could include either. This has more straightforward bangers on it than EE but that Dylan cover... Man. The debut probably loses a bit of steam towards the end. Adore Splash 1, and Don't Fall Down, both of which show they had more about them than freakouts and playing a jug. What the authorities did to Roky and the band is a disgrace.
Interesting album with a lot of Energy. Television has a cool cover of Fire Engine. Didnt blow me away, but still pretty interesting. Very raw.
Pretty basic but interesting how old this album is
I've never heard of this group or the album. It has the psychedelic rock sound. Apparently one of the first bands to use that term.
Pretty solid background music.
3.5 - No tenía idea de que existían The Elevators o su electric jug. Fuera de que abusan de ese sonido poniéndolo en todas las canciones, me pareció un rock psicodélico muy a gusto y en particular me agradó 'Fire Engine'
I like this album a lot. I have been into the psychedelic rock lately.
La pregunta es: el mareo que provoca escuchar este disco habrá sido intencional?
The music is not great but, man, do I want to party with these guys!!
Pretty sick. Not as good as Easter Everywhere. 6/10
I had a big psychedelic rock phase late in college/right after. The singles are good, the album mostly forgettable. Blends together.
Early (Wikipedia says possibly the first) psychedelic rock music. It's certainly solid, but I feel like it's on the list more for historical significance than for being a great album.
Trop psychedelique à mon goût.
Un bon album psychedelic et meme vant les tounes de pink floyd en 1966. J’ai aime le style. 3.25
Doidera demais pro meu gosto
Het is best wel goed maar ik vind het niet erg bijzonder
Have always thought this was good background music. Some high points, but it all blends together after a bit.
A fun freak out album. Nice and garagey, psychedelic. Most prodigious use of the Brazilian thing that sounds like someone inhaling and exhaling fast—and at first it was charming then became annoying. I wonder if it’s supposed to be less prevalent on the mix and new headphones pick it up? I loved this album at first, then found it one note and almost annoying. 3
Hear the Texas. Hear the the garage walls. Hear the ELECTRIC JUG. This album would still be good jugless, but with that chaotic, quadruple-timing whoop-whooper in the mix this thing goes next level. The entire album feels urgent, almost panicked, like a bad LSD trip. Like Roky had paranoid dreams of a twister about to touch down. The jug will save you, Roky. B+
Geen uitblinker van een album, maar vond het wel oké
Was really weird
Like it's okay, but on the other hand very forgetable.
reverby wall of sound
Another album that's not bad but I don't understand why it's on this list
Just looked at the track list....wow this is a long album lol. Really cool sounds tbh. Not for me, but I can appreciate what it is.
I liked it more than most psychedelic rock.
I recognize that in 1966 this was wild. Sounds a few years early. The surf rock riff on a psych album blew my mind
Lyssningen genomfördes i bilen i samband med Davids flytt så fokus var kanske inte genomgående 100% på musiken. Men med det sagt så började den med att ge ett svagt intryck. Musiken kändes inte dålig per se, men mer tråkig kanske? Ju längre jag lyssnade desto bättre blev det dock, det var många fina små gitarr-riff som uppskattas. Det fanns även en del likheter med ett band jag håller väldigt högt, the Beatles. Bäst: "Fire engine"
Well thecfirst song; You're gonna miss me is FANTASTIC. 2nd song way more psychedelic (I wonder what that burbling sound is...could be a guitar effect, maybe even a human voice...sounds cool though). Some great songs here and I love all the covers. It started out as a 3 star, especially the first song and Splash 1. By the ninth or tenth it was down to 2 🌟, then came 4 straight covers, all excellent. Back up to 3 stars and could get close to 4 with more listens. 3 🌟
Fun listen. It wouldn't be on my must-play list, but I'd give it a spin on occasion.
Would listen again
Kinda felt meh. Interesting listen, but nothing really stood out. Sounded more like experimental surfer rock than psychedelic rock. More than likely will not be a repeat listen.
27th August 2021 Listened whilst getting ready for a weekend away camping with sav and Sally. Really enjoyed this, it has the 60s written all through it even to the point where you can hear the darker undertones to it as well.
Srogie piguly wylosowalo, nie bylo sluchane, bo takiego dzwieku nie da sie raczej z nicym pomylic, jak sam tytul sugeruje album jest mocno psychodelicznym brzmieniem bandy znanej jako the 13th floor elevators, wiec chlopaki wysoko lataja, kontent liryczny zaserwowany na plycie jest dosc klasycznym stonerskim bajdurzeniem na tematy wszelakie, percepcja, jej brak, konektowanie, teksty pisane przez wokaliste i operatora gitarki rytmicznej rokiego ericsona, ciekawa kombinacja imieniowo nazwiskowa, reszta bandy to niby klasyk, bo basy dwa, na roznych trakach zmieniaja sie grajacy na nim, gitarka, dumowa perkusja, ale jest to cos co nadaje unikalnego charakteru tego materialowi, mianowicie, elektryczna flaszka, z anglinskiego electric jug, o ile jugi sa jeszcze jakos wykorzystywane w muzyce i w latach 20 nawet byly bandy jugowe, tak elektryczny jug to swojego rodzaju unikat grany tutaj przez tommiego halla, jeden instrument, ktory nawet nie jest w centrum uwagi nadaje charakteru calemu materialowi, bo takiego dzwieku jeszcze nie znalem, a najblizej mu do synthowych klawiszy, ale nie do konca, bo jego dzwiek ma dziwny ksztalt, wiec to z pewnoscia zapamietam najbardziej z tej plyty, bo jesli chodzi o pozostale aspekty to pomimo roznorodnosci brzmienia, bo z poczatku brzmia bardzo garazowo, gdyby nie harmonijka pana ericksona, przechodza z rokowania, na bardziej folkowe brzmienie, zeby zaraz uderzuc na bluesa, wiec material nie jest nudny, czasowo rowniez to dobry cut, bo 34 minuty na 11 trakach, ale brakuje tu dedykacji do jednego stylu, chociaz to jest debiutancki epek bandy, wiec ciekawe tez w ktora strone ruszyli w dalszej dzialanosci, no i czy jug pozostal, bo robi robote, przynajmniej jako cos co wyroznia bande, na plejke wrzuce najbardziej hitowo sprzedany trak zespolu, otwierajacy plyte w garazowym stylu you are gonna miss me oraz monke island
Rock psicodélico sesentero un tanto soso.
Crazy and weird but fun and rocks pretty hard. Twangy surf guitar, 60s ginger baker style overdrumming, and that electric jug thing adds a whole level of frenetic energy.
Weird, but never quite reaches high weirdness. It's all a bit normal-weird. More jug please. The mono recording seems better, actually, but the stereo track order has a monster of a closer.
A fun listen, albeit I found it starting to drag a bit in the second half.
Wasn’t too bad kinda funky.
This album is so damn 60s. It's got that Mamas & Papas chord picking folk sound mixed with that Rolling Stones distorted blues vibes all rolled up into a frantic cyclonic trip.
Good stuff, fun listen!
It was ok, enjoyed the more surfery ones, and I've now learned all about the electric jug.
Some Doors, some Jefferson Airplane... I had never heard of these guys but their influence on the late 60s is pretty obvious.
1st song,you're gonna miss me, cool 60s sound. Weird sounding instrument in most songs.
Fine but nothing special.
it's an album
I should like this more as I like some similar stuff but I couldn't really get into it. A lot of the background psychedelic noises were cool I just wanted more of it
I recognise the album cover but never listened to this band before. Due to the name I was going into this hoping it would be way more Psychedelic! It was pretty good though and I'd give it another shot sometime.
Very psychedelic, very 60s. Enjoyable, although not sure it needed (at least) two versions of each song!
Not bad. It has a 60s style but it sounded nice. No recognized songs
Love this one
There's a reason the electric jug never took off as a featured instrument in popular music. Similar to why the wishbone offense never lasted in football. It might have worked at the collegiate level, but only if you had extremely skilled position players, and even then success was sporadic. That shit never flew in the pro game. The electric jug and the wishbone offense got old really fast. Shoutout to the opening of "High Fidelity". Bumping this score up a notch just for reminding me of that movie.
The album cover would suggest Psychedelic even if the album title didn't. Hopefully that is what we'll be getting, some nice heavy 60's grooves. Yup! First song, You're Gonna Miss Me, immediately reminds me of Van Morrison belting out G-L-O-R-I-A, but like with some extra lava lamp in the background, which is all good with me. A promising start. Several songs in the blooping is starting to get tiresome. But even with that it is still firmly rooted in its 60's sound. Oh wait. I'm listening to a remaster. This isn't a 2010 band trying (and very much succeeding) in trying to sound like a 60's band. It *is* a 60's band. Right. Well, that's a little less fun. Monkey Island evokes the Animals "We Gotta Get Outta This Place" but weirder. Actually, a lot of the songs are like that. They sound a lot like other bands of the day but with more jug. Roller Coaster, which sounds like Jefferson Airplane meets The Doors, predates both White Rabbit and The End, so credit where credit is due on that. Did I need to hear this before I died? I think yes, the jug situation was worth hearing. Favorite song is definitely the first track, You're Gonna Miss Me. Overall the album is fine but kind of dragged through the middle. An album all as good as Miss Me would get 4, all Monkey Island would get 2. So my choice is obvious.
So strange and so recognizable...I liked it, but it's not anything so special. Maybe another day I'll give it another try just to check.
Nice psychedelic sound but a bit meh
very 60's. i like it
Groovy. That fits right in my bag, baby! (well kind of) Not sure what the bubbly sound is throughout the album, but not a fan. All said and done, I think several of these tracks could be deconstructed to yield some cool songs. 2.8/3
60’er psykedelisk garagerock, råt, stadig melodisk, jug-lyde
It was a pretty cool find.
Dat viel me niet tegen
Not my thing, but not horrible
Blueprint for a lot of psychedelic albums. As it stands, it’s much more garage rock than anything else. And that’s OK. (6/10) FT: The Kingdom of Heaven (Is Within You), Roller Coaster
Exactly what you'd expect. Rock and roll with a psychedelic twist. Worth a listen.
The 13th Floor Elevators were truly on the leading edge of psychedelic rock, but those who followed and likely took inspiration from them just did it better. I would have been interested to hear Big Brother and the Holding Company perform these songs, with tighter instrumentation (even in the context of psychedelic rock's loose style) and Janis Joplin's vocals. As it was, I give them credit for pioneers of the sound but can't really recommend it or want to go back to it.
not really my type of music, but i didn’t hate it.
Darkly weird and intense garage/psychedelic rock. The quality level is a bit uneven from song to song, but it's still pretty great. Highly innovative and memorable. Fave Songs: You're Gonna Miss Me, Roller Coaster, Thru the Rhythm, Splash 1 (Now I'm Home), You Don't Know
yes, I would like to hear this again.
Virtuosic electric jug playing
not bad, not that great either
I think I didn't like it because these extended versions are so boring for someone that is not already a fan. I'm sure I would enjoy more the original album.
psych surf rock, not my fav.
Love the innovative use of the electric jug. Less convinced by Roky's voice.
Monkees on Acid.
Enjoyable psychedelia. It was a little rawer, but it also led to being a little too noisy and busy for regular listening to me.
Enjoyable 60’s psychedelic album, would listen again
Quite a bit better than i expected. Enough strong garage rock tracks, good beat, straightforward guitars, with a raw energy. You're Gonna Miss Me, Splash 1 and Kingdom of Heaven were really good.
Not nearly as psychedelic as I thought it would be! But given how 13th floors don't exist... well, this album doesn't exist?
You’re gonna miss me is an absolute TUNE - I enjoyed some of the tracks but others hurt my ears a bit. I’m going with 3 because there are some really good songs and I like the general sound. The lead singers voice I like a lot too
Interesting. I preferred Easter.
Perfectly fine bit of psychedelica. Made for a pleasant background for my train ride without ever really standing out
Fun album - quintessentially 60s I could’ve gone for a bit more 'psychedelic' - but I'm sure at the time it was pretty out-there. Great album art work.
It sounds quite quaint now although it must have sounded outlandish at the time when British bands were still wearing matching suits and folk rock was huge. Terribly recorded and the songs don’t stand up that well but I did enjoy bits of it (although that weird noise they put in a load of the tracks gets very annoying quickly).
A sound to match the artwork. A bit samey all the way through and I think that “you had to be there, man” to get the full hit. But the jam session, psychedelic vibe is a lovely place to escape to.
6/10. Pretty good, and I can definitely hear how this was influential
I love, absolutely love the first track...You're gonna Miss Me. I also figured that since I don't really know them and love this song, that the rest wasn't going to be quite up there on the same bar. I was correct. Still, some good stuff and this classic track. 3 stars.
This is the psychedelia I like. Fuzztones for miles and microphones pushed to the breaking point. You're Gonna Miss Me is the sound of the late 60s for me.
PLAY THAT FUCKIN' JUG.
Caught my attention right away and I enjoyed it. However, it dragged on with similar-sounding songs. I think I’d like this band best in short spurts.
60s-era psychedelic rock, sounds like the Doors again a little.
Muy psicodélico pero lo que no me gustó fue el exceso de tucutucutucutucutu en todas las canciones, quién les dijo que eso estaba en onda?
It moved back and forth between interesting and odd
Odd. Not my favorite.
Ni me di cuenta como iba pasando
You are gonna miss me, and psicodelic circus
2.7 - Wanted to like this but the recording even after a remaster sounds grimy. No real standout tracks. To me there isn’t that much to distinguish this as a psychedelic record.
annoying psychedelic rock with grating vocals and an overreliance on this electric jug thing that drives me nuts. 2/5
back at the chicken shack leek meer op liftmuziek dan dit. Niet helemaal overtuigd.
Fine - but sounded exactly how I thought it would sound. No hooks really. Not for me.
You can hear the influence of albums like this in all kinds of media when they're trying to communicate someone is on a drug trip. The sound is very big and messy, largely because of the heavy reverb. Also, there's a backing track throughout the album that I really don't like the sound of, it's a synth maybe? Hopping back and forth between notes like somebody messing with their zipper. Irked me.
I have never heard of the artist or any of the music. There was this strange wibble-wobble noise that found its way into the background of ¿half? of the tracks. I think I like some psychodelic music, but the first listen of this album came up with 2 stars.
The electric jug was cool for a couple of songs but gets a little irritating the more I hear it. Would of liked it more as an accent than warbling through entire songs.
I can't hear you speak up son
It’s a pretty generic 60s album. Has its rock and psychedelic moments but there’s nothing that really stands out. It’s a long album and feels like it. Overall it’s meh. 5.1/10
Sounds like pretty basic psychedelic rock from the 60s.
Perhaps a bit forgettable in a sea of similarly "out-there" releases.
To be quite honest, I just wasn’t in the mood to listen to this. It’s not the worst thing I’ve ever heard, but it just didn’t strike my fancy. So I only listened to a few songs before turning it off.
Normally I can dig classic garage rock, and I've been known to enjoy some psychedelic rock, but this combination of the two just did not click for me.
As far aw psychadelic rock goes this is quite mild but not bad. Howeve the spund quality degrades the experience.
I find the bubbling of the electric jug distracting. Easy to see how these guys were influencial founders of the psychedelic rock scene.
It was fine. A lot of songs started to blend together. Could be a symptom of production at the time, but it was fine. Favourite Tracks: it was fine.
It was ok considering it was psychedelic
I liked the album but the constant distortion effect present on most tracks gave me a headache.
One of the first bands to use the term psychedelic rock - if you couldn't tell by the colourful trip-inducing album cover. The use of the "hillbilly" jug as a sound is thankfully not too prominent and blends in quite well. Overall, a good psych rock album, although there weren't too many standouts. Best: You're Gonna Miss Me Worst: Don't Fall Down 2.5 Stars Note: Spotify had the 2008 Remaster Edition, but I only listened to the original tracks
boring, too much, not fun, dont like it
This list is giving me psychedelic rock exhaustion 😩
I didn't enjoy this as much as I hoped I might. All felt quite samey. I often am disappointed that psychedelic is often just code for "a bit shit". "The music doesn't have to be good because it psychadelic man!"
det var ok
