66 of 1001 Albums: The 13th Floor Elevator's The Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators

  So yesterday I missed my first day. After a week straight of working, and trying to keep up I finally had to forget it for a day. As we get further into the years of the hippies the more bizarre the sounds become. What used to be the happier times of Donovan are now slipping to something a little darker sounding with The 13th Floor Elevator.  This isn't upbeat, colorful music. It could see tons of people taking parts in recreational activities to this music, but there is something much more somber inducing about it. 
  This music sounds a lot like the stuff that would be a prelude to what gave Jimi Hendrix his opening to become a classic in the world of 60s rock. This music is definitely more rock than the poppy mix that has been on the list. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of their music. They aren't terrible to listen to, but there isn't anything that particularly catches me about it either. The guys actually look fairly normal considering their odd music.
