I'm in my new phase.
Give me some brilliant or underrated acid albums...please
Acid-Rock? Could you specify more? Do you mean psychedelia, trippy music or what?

Well, I just read that "Acid Rock" was basically psychedelic rock. So I guess give me some good psychedelica albums.
According to Wikipedia
Acid rock is a form of psychedelic rock, which is characterized by long instrumental solos, few (if any) lyrics and musical improvisation. Tom Wolfe describes the LSD-influenced music of The Doors, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Pink Floyd, Iron Butterfly, Big Brother & The Holding Company, Cream, Jefferson Airplane, Ultimate Spinach, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Blue Cheer, Quicksilver Messenger Service, The Great Society, Stone Garden and the Grateful Dead as "acid rock" in his book about Ken Kesey and the Acid Tests, The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test.
I'd say Ultimate SPinach
In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida is what instantly came to my mind as well seeing the thread title.

To those noted above, I would add 13th Floor Elevators, Love, Spirit, Moby Grape, Steppenwolf from America. From the U.K., The Pretty Things, Small Faces, The Move, Soft Machine, Caravan, Family, Traffic.
Pick up "Nuggets" and "Nuggets II." Each are 4 CD boxsets loaded with fantastic garage band rock, most by obscure bands and many with a psychedelic bend.
Iron Butterfly, Heavy. Dedicated mono mix if you can find one. I noticed that the article above had NRPS. Never thought of them as acid rock.
Jarvius, don't take the brown acid!!!
The Factory: Try A Little Sunshine
The Factory: Path Through The Forest
Dr. John: I Walk On Guilded Splinters
Kaleidoscope: Seven Ate Sweet
Joe Byrd and the Field Hippies: The American Metaphysical Circus
Terry Riley: A Rainbow In Curved Air
Is there a bright line between acid rock and stoner rock? And, if so, on what side of the line does Robin Trower's "Bridge of Sighs" fall?
+1....this is the album I think of when I think of the phrase "acid-rock"
you might want to check out this thread, tons of cool psych bands here. Get your wallet ready
Not just because it (and the Inner Mounting Flame) were the first thing I played the first time I took acid:
Just listen to it and you'll be
Check out the new Chris Robinson Brotherhood CD Big Moon Ritual.
It is quite a throwback to the psychedelic (sort of Grateful Dead sounding) era.
Blue Cheer - Outsideinside
i like these Psych records
Pretty Things - S F Sorrow
Dukes Of The Stratosfear - 25 O'clock
The Bevis Frond - New River Head
You need some krautrock in your collection, alot of it is very psychedelic, mindbending blow your mind kinda stuff, some of the more psychedelic ones I can recommend:
Ash ra tempel- s/t, amboss is THE psychedelic jam imo, mindblowing stuff, you NEED this if you are a fan of psychedelia.
Amon duul II- yeti
Can- tago mago (possibly my favorite album of all time, aumgn and peking o are not for the faint of heart but are my 2 favorite songs on the album.
Guru guru- kanguru
Eroc- eroc 1
Klaus schulze- timewind (more progressive electronic then krautrock)
Neu!- Neu! 1
Other albums by those bands are worth checking out those would be good ones to start with.
Electric Music For The Mind And Body: Country Joe And The Fish
Other Way Out by Sun Dial is a pretty awesome modern take on heavy acidic psychedelia. Check it out.
"Spare Chaynge" Dec 1967 (instrumental) is my vote (also a common catch-prhase in The Haight).
On the LP "After Bathing At Baxter's", "Spare Chaynge" composition is a jam credited to Jack Casady, Jorma Kaukonen and Spencer Dryden (trio) from Jefferson Airplane. It's over 9 minutes long and the music swells / builds to crescendos.
After the hit singles "White Rabbit" and Somebody To Love" on "Surrealistic Pillow", the JA band was able to stretch out on their subsequent album, showing off some of their live power and prowess.
Yeah, especially 'Dark Star'. I'd also recommend 'Anthem of the Sun'.
