Hey everybody!
As a musician and keen explorer in the realms of meditation, spiritual growth and expansion,
I know how a well chosen soundtrack can shape ANY experience and bring it to a new, sometimes unexpected or beautiful level.
So I thought I'd start a thread, share my favorite tunes and ask anyone whos listening to share theirs, so we'll end up developing a comprahensive library of assorted, beautiful music.

The Mars Volta - pretty much everything by them, particularly the 'amputechture' album.
Omar Rodriguez Lopez - The Apocalypse inside of an Orange, Old Money, Cryptomnesia (hes other stuff is great too)
Pink Floyd - Everything before 'The wall' came out.
The Beatles - Everything.
Tool - Aenima, Lateralus, 10 000 Days
The Glitch Mob - Drink the Sea
De Facto -Everything.
Linda Perhacs - Parralellagrams
Cream - Everything
The Grateful Dead - Nearly Everything
Jimi Hendrix - Everything
Syd Barrett -The Madcap Laughs

Now come at me with your favorite mindmelters;D

Me too lol.

Holy shit I forgot:

Porcupine Tree, Voyage 34. Effing awesome!
Ween, Transdermal Celebration put headphones on, swim the sky. The entire Quebec album is such an adventure rich with setting scenes for your brain to convert into movie visuals.
Jimi Hendrix 1983 (A merman I should turn to be). Headphones also be used. Shut your eyes and convince your ears that Jimi Hendrix is alive and kicking and thrashing the shit out of his strat right there in front of you.
The Doors. Pure liquid voice.
Funkadelic, Maggot Brain. You FEEL that guitar's pain.
The Mars Volta. LOVE them. Halo of Nembutals is stunning.
Pink Floyd. Hell YEAH.
Tool. One of my top favourite bands.
Led Zeppelin. I only recently actually listened to their stuff more than just stairway and kashmir.
Queens Of The Stone Age, Rated R. Better LIving Through Chemistry
Radiohead, Shpongle.

Apart from Dionysis, has anyone else listened to the Syd Barrett tribute album that was released with Mojo magazine a couple of years ago ? It's one of my new 'green' albums

You never heard them before ? Youre in for a huge treat.

If you like them, support the artist, as they are only small players in the industry. Albums direct from their label for under 20 bucks.

I'd have to second aphex twin. The best album by far would have to be the compilation album ...Classics.
Second to that, for a more ambient vibe, Selected ambient works II is pretty good too.
Drukqs is also pretty cool. I wouldn't bother with any of the rest except for a diehard fan, some of the pieces in other albums fall pretty flat and seem to have something "missing".
I LOVE YOU!!
