Default Psychedelia Album Club I - "Incense and Peppermints" - The Strawberry Alarm Clock




When you're done listening to the album, tell us here so we know when everyone is ready to discuss. Feel free to mention a couple of first impressions, but abstain from any serious discussion.

I have been doing tons of searching and I can't find anyway to listen to it.
Could you please provide a link, and also maybe a link for the lyrics.
I always read them while listening or I might not get something.

It's on Spotify, if you have that.

I'm two songs away from being done, but I don't like this. At best it's like a 2/5 - does nothing for me. Okay done discussing now sorry.

I do use Spotify. I can't see it anywhere. I put in "Strawberry Alarm Clock" and it only shows one album called Wake Up Where You Are.

I'm being tortured by The Batlord with Limp Bizkit atm, but will try to get a listen to it in the next day or so.

BTW you can put my choice spot up for grabs too, as I know nothing about this music and could not hope to recommend anything. I'll learn from you guys.

I've always preferred Wake Up... It's Tomorrow to this one, but it's a classic no doubt. The first track is a stellar acid rock jam, and it's my favorite on the album by a long shot. Strawberry Alarm Clock, especially with the title track of this album, are a good soundtrack for the stereotype that we envision the late 60's counterculture hippie era to be like. Maybe more thoughts later, but it's a 7/10 from me. A lot of bands from the same time were releasing what I'd consider much stronger albums. This one is more poppy and junk, not that that's bad or anything.
