A Listmania! list by Neil
 
The Madcap Laughs
1.  The Madcap Laughs by Syd Barrett
The list author says:
  "An astonishingly jagged and emotional insight into the mind of an acid casualty. Out of tune singing, shifting electric guitar and quiet pyshedelic overdubs."

Check Your Head
2.  Check Your Head by Beastie Boys

4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

Safe As Milk
3.  Safe As Milk by Captain Beefheart

Future is medium (1996)
4.  Future is medium (1996) by Compulsion

Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots
5.  Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots by The Flaming Lips

Zaireeka
7.  Zaireeka by The Flaming Lips
