1001 Albums #72

As I progressed toward the end of the 60s I knew a few more of the artist, but The 13th Floor Elevators is one I have never heard of at all. When I saw the album The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators I was excited to hear what psychedelic sounds they created.

Okay, I did not know what I was in for when asked for psychedelic sounds. I did not enjoy this album even the second time. They are talented musicians, but I was hoping for Pink Floyd, but this is some Frank Zappa shit.

My personal favourite song on the album was “Splash 1 (Now I’m Home)“. If they had done more like it, then they may have been more famous. Although, as with almost every band in the history of music they could not survive the drugs and turmoil. People are people and people hate other people.

This album must be on the list for being weird. I did not enjoy it. I can see where it might have influenced some artists. Sometimes the songs sounded the same. Sometimes they sounded like the noise in my head. It was a bit awful to listen to for me. 3/10.
