to those who've done LSD what was it like? be original, go beyond just giving the same old generic description.
also make your pic related your ideal album to trip to
Just go to erowid dude.
But my favorite tripping album is Trout Mask Replica because when I heard it on acid I never laughed so hard in my life. It's just a goofy album and I gained a lot of insight into its creativity while actively listening to it
Listening to the first half of this album on LSD was literally like having a 40-minute orgasm accompanied by life-affirming thoughts and an overwhelming feeling of pure bliss. How I imagine heroin to feel like though I've never tried it. Also a lot of closed-eye visuals of fractals, vivid colours, dancing patterns etc.
The second half was fucking intense.
thanks for the site
yeah this is something that i read alot, i was just wondering how people on here might describe it. i know its an impossible task but i just want to see what people come up with. this is coming from someone who's never done LSD before just fyi
i suggest coming up with b8 thats less obvious
This. You can try to describe the visuals, the bodyload, headspace, but you really can never communicate the uniqueness and emotional impact of actually tripping.
Anyways this probably, not 'cause it's the most fun for tripping but because it's relaxing and good vibes while also great, so you can put it on both on normal trips and on higher dose super intense shit to calm you down a lil.
That album is definitely close on my list. As is Ege Bamyasi and Future Days. Fuck I'll end up putting on one of em and listening to the others right after till I start realizing I've heard it tripping to damn much maybe I should actually put something else on for a change.
LSD is amazing, gives you a great new perspective on life. also, pretty much any album is great to listen to, but i like Tobacco, St Vincent, Bob Marley, of Montreal and i just listen with headphones with my eyes closed
haha, oh man, me and my best friend did some 4-AcO-DMT and listened to Tago Mago in full just a few days ago, we were both basically completely fucking floored for a long time (eternity in drums) and then the weirder stuff came in and shit...
that one part in peking o where he brings in the like super fast bass drum thing had us both laughing hysterically, it was so out of place, great shit
My friend took a pretty big dose of LSD recently and he just spent most of his time standing up and looking at different corners of the room and generally seeming uncomfortable and being unable to hold a conversation. He was hungry so I gave him a pizza but just ended up spreading the tomato sauce on walls. I've tried to ask him what he felt during the trip but he hasn't been able to describe it.
I really like everything really chaotic during the first couple of hours of acid, after that some more peaceful music. Free jazz and albums with lots of quick genre changes and so on.
Listened to this the first time I tripped on LSD and I felt like I was in South America. I bought the album the day before, but was unsure how it would affect my tripping experience. It was a gorgeous day out and I spent the whole time walking around this hill near my house while wearing a backpack. Sat under trees and had some amazing visuals. I ran into some friends that tripped the night before and I convinced myself they were my trip gurus. One of my friends was giving this girl a massage on the hill while "European Oils" was playing and I lost my shit. Great first trip.
I think FlyLo's You're Dead is perfect music for the come up and peak of an LSD trip, it's a very intense and colorful album with an interesting theme and a lot of different influences. Really, listening to anything that's a bit more conceptual tends to be very enjoyable on LSD.
>What's it like?
For an idea of the visuals, check this out: neave.com/strobe/
Now imagine that for ~7 hours and more intense.
The bodyload I guess you could say is like a constant buzzing all over your body. It feels really good. It can get a bit overwhelming though.
I'm not going to describe the headspace because that's something you really just have to experience.
Not posting an album because I fucking hate music on psychs. It's all too stimulating, from hip-hop to folk and everything in-between.
You know how when a snake sheds its skin and comes out of the dry, dead skin with that new layer? That's what acid is like with your brain.
Last time I tripped I got waaay more than I bargained for with some 25i and it got pretty strange, I couldn't keep a straight thought for more than 10 seconds. I listened to Electr-O-Pura for the first time and fell in love with it. It felt so cinematic. On acid I always want to make something that sounds composed of just background sounds from movies or tv shows. Also, I swear, I get audio hallucinations too, my ears ringing basically just sound like amp static with a phaser pedal. I'm wondering if I hear my own brainwaves or what because I noticed I had some indirect degree of control over the ringing sounds in my ears.
DMT is insane also but it's the only drug I've ever done where I didn't care about music with it. One time when I was on LSD I smoked some DMT and I was fucking hit hard, it was intense. Then when I did more later (was coming down on the L by then and I did less DMT this time) I swear I could hear some sort of sucking sound coming from the inside of my head, I have no idea what it was.
I still want to try shrooms.
Basically the first time you trip it seems like whatever you can imagine regarding visuals or mental stuff can actually happen. Especially when you close your eyes, it's like your imagination in IMAX.
Tobacco is great while tripping. Pic related also.
feels like if the band can use their instrumentation to alter my sense of perception with each note
No I definitely have taken more
It's pretty crazy that's for fucking sure
With this I imagined this song as like being it's own independent and self-functional machine, whatever that means
Same guy here
I honestly just recommend you take MDMA. The experience is infinitely more rewarding provided you're with close friends. Sure it's more dangerous for you, but I think it's 100% worth it. Keep the dosage under 200mg and you're all good. Plus music actually sounds good on it. I like this album a lot when rolling.
Done acid over 30 times now, you never know if it's lsd but I live a city over from San Fran so anything that's tasteless is pretty close to lsd, I've had terrifying trips and eye opening trips, it depends on your surroundings, mixed 2 tabs with salvia once and got lost in the woods listening to pink Floyd, other times i've done a large dose with xanax or codine to put me on couchlock and listened to 1000 micrograms and infected mushroom
It's a stimulant, so you'll feel energized and it feels like your brain is trying to piece together patterns out of everything constantly. Both times I've tried it, it felt easy to imagine a sort of universal pattern out of which various things were scaled. It's not an easy experience to put into words.
I haven't listened to music on it, but I'd probably go for something relaxing, dub maybe.
