100 Greatest Psychedelic Albums

Criteria: - With instrumental originality, sound exploration, studio effects and extended improvisation as the central elements of psychedelic music, these albums were chosen as the best examples that helped define the genre. Impact & lasting influence were primary factors with lyrical content considered to a lesser degree. Those artists known specifically as vocal groups were excluded. Editor's note: As with all lists, this is a subjective list & makes no claim of an official nature.
