The thread title is pretty self-explanatory, right? What drugs do you find "work best" with what albums and why!

It might be an obvious one but do I ever love Surf's Up and weed! I think this album is at just the right moment in their careers where you could see them wanting to make trippy pop music. Almost all of the song's backing tracks have a hell of a lot going on in them, especially "Don't Go Near the Water", and the absurdly complex vocal shifting from member-to-member sometimes even within a line is so intense! ("Tree" and "Til I Die" are downers but... goshdarn, they are fucking powerful and gracefully done!)

What about y'all?

Love You has some pretty sweet sounds to hear when you're baked. Also Holland.

I want to eat mushrooms and listen to Smiley Smile at my favorite beach, but none of my friends think it's a good idea.

Carl & The Passions, when you're high, morphs from a mostly-forgettable album to one that contains some of their grooviest and I dare say funkiest stuff! Well, not Dennis's contributions here, way too overproduced. "Here She Comes" is great!

I hear from a very reliable source that Sunflower and acid go well together  Brian's Trip

Surf's Up and Holland pretty well cut the mustard amongst our small collection of stoners and trippers. Throw in The Guess Who and Allman Brothers from that era and you had yourself some mighty fine sounding entertainment to get by on. Over and over again until graduation split us apart. We were tight during that time though and The Beach Boys were a major surprise to my newly turned on friends. At first they thought I was crazy. Then came Surf's Up.

TSS. I don't use cocaine but I have a feeling Love You would be a great soundtrack for that.

I haven't used acid in many years (pre-dating my experience of really discovering the BB) but I have tripped and watched the Monkees movie HEAD countless times.

For me, personally, I started listening to The Beach Boys very shortly after I started smoking weed in early 2009. I listened to Pet Sounds high and it instantly became practically the soundtrack to my life. That was one of the very first albums in general that I can remember weed having a tremendous effect on the overall listening experience.

Truth be told, I've dabbled in a LOT of dxm products and have had MANY a trip. Smiley Smile, Holland, and Surf's Up were some REALLY good listens. Friends is really good for that, too.

I did DMT once and listened to Good Vibrations and could have swore I saw an image of a stencil-like outline of Brian Wilson's PS-era face pop out of the crud at the bottom of the toilet bowl.

But whatever your drug and whatever your album, you've GOTTA listen on vinyl. It's out of this world.


On an unrelated note, Steely Dan's 'Aja' is worth a listen on vinyl when you're stoned out of your mind.

I find a lot of BB albums are like this when you're stoned.

Though... I'm still waiting on Summer In Paradise to turn good.

I'll start off by saying I've loved and had a deep connection with every Beach Boys album sober.

Having said that, I've been entranced by all of them while baked, being that I smoked weed heavily when I first got into the band. Pet Sounds, Friends, and Sunflower were my major getting-high albums.

Love You, interestingly enough, is the album I've most consistently enjoyed regardless of my state of mind.

One of the most outstanding moments I can recall is when I took some Vicodin and played "Only With You" several times.  Right place at the right time, I guess.

I hear that SMiLe, Surf's Upand BWRG are amazing on LSD. Pot goes well with all of the albums, especially Smiley Smile, Pet Sounds, Holland, and Sunlower. All of this is according to my friend who does drugs. I don't use any recreational drugs, although I do sometimes hold my breath until I become very dizzy.

Listening to The Beach Boys clean and sober is great too.

I wouldn't know.. angel

I have heard all the LP's straight and they really can be judged and enjoyed fine that way. A little smoke could very well spice up the 1966-72 recordings a bit though......so I'm told. I admit nothing  police lol.

Friends.

Hey Billy C. I'm feeling a vibe here, are you feeling it too? It's like we're on the same wavelength or something because I came here to make the exact post you did. Glad to see somebody was already on top of it.

I don't smoke weed (out of the inability to get any rather than choice....) but I may say that Love You is a great album to have on the headphones when you are near blackout drunk. And as I have attested to on this very board, Country Love and Summer In Paradise are decidedly not.  LOL
