I don't partake in weed but I've heard Ween's God Ween Satan is pretty amazing this way.

1.04 I think you have to go with some early classic rock or psychedelia with this...maybe something like "Surrealistic Pillow" by Jefferson Airplane.

Oooh, I forgot about most trippy album I every heard...Dr. Timothy Leary's "You Can Be Anyone This Time Around".

Or, how about "Are You Experienced"?

1.05 The Doors, Weird Scenes Inside the Gold Mine

I can't describe it, and I think that it's long out of (What would you call music when it's not available anymore? Out of print?) whatever. But it's as good, and as strange, as anything that I've listened to in decades. Here's a review I found online...



All Music Guide Review

A very interesting double LP retrospective two years after Jim Morrison's version of the Doors had officially closed. Weird Scenes Inside the Goldmine contained the first album release of two B-sides, Willie Dixon's "(You Need Meat) Don't Go No Further," sung by Ray Manzarek, originally on the flip side of the 1971 45 "Love Her Madly," and the beautiful "Who Scared You," "Wishful Sinful"'s flip with Jim Morrison on vocals from a session in 1969. Both are worthwhile additions not found on their first "greatest hits" collection, 13. This compilation is a strange amalgam of their music, the LP title taken from a line in the song "The End," which concludes side two. Five of the 22 songs are from the L.A. Woman sessions, including the title track of that album and the full length "Riders on the Storm," both clocking in at seven-plus minutes. With "The End" and "When the Music's Over" at 11:35 and 11:00 respectively, that's 38 minutes and 38 seconds between four titles, more than a third of the 99-plus minutes of music on this collection. Nothing from Absolutely Live is included, and surprisingly, the classic "Waiting for the Sun" is not here, though that Morrison Hotel number would fit the mood perfectly. "Love Street," the flip of "Hello I Love You," is here, but pertinent singles like "Wishful Sinful" or "Do It" and its flip, "Runnin' Blue," from The Soft Parade, are all missing in action. The cover art pastiche by Bill Hoffman is worth the price of admission if you already have all this material, while the inside gatefold picture looks like an outtake from the first album. Bruce Harris' liner notes are truly the '60s merging with the '70s; he calls Jim Morrison "merely the index of our possibilities" and states that Morrison didn't want to be an idol "because he believed all idols were hollow." The essay is all the more silly when you realize it isn't tongue-in-cheek in the way Lou Reed's incoherent ramblings inside Metal Machine Music are more enjoyable than the disc. Harris seems to actually believe what he pontificates. But the music is awesome, so put it on and read the Metal Machine Music scribblings instead. Weird Scenes Inside the Goldmine is a work of art in the first order, the way the Beatles #1 album is wonderfully redundant, and it should see the light of day again. This time they could add "Tree Trunk," the flip of the "Get Up and Dance" 45 RPM from 1972's Full Circle album. ~ Joe Viglione, All Music Guide

1.06 The Pod, Ween

The Pod is much better than GWS for that sort of vibe. Hell, they recorded it on shrooms while suffering from mono.

GWS has its moments, but a lot of it sounds like a long-form version of Adam Sandler's tantrum song in The Wedding Singer. Not really ideal for the weed-and-headphones vibe. Your sources are probably thinking of GWS because of the song "Puffy Cloud," but the rest of the album doesn't sound like that at all.

Van Morrison: Astral Weeks

Forget the weed, but you need a the good headphones. This was very influential with both musicians and engineers. The sequence where, the treble line alternates between left to right, was groundbreaking.

Yeah, I'm sure you are right. I've always like GWS better and maybe that's cause I don't smoke pot.

Believe me, back in the day, weed was the RIGHT enhancement for Dark Side. "I speak from experience, from experience, sir!"

I'll go with

1.11 Pink Floyd, Wish You Were Here

Simply awesome through headphones.
