PINK FLOYD - A Saucerful Of Secrets 
Recorded during the difficult transitional period of replacing troubled frontman Syd Barrett with David Gilmour, Pink Floyd still managed to put out a stellar album in the process.
1968's A Saucerful Of Secrets begins showing glimpses of the darkness that would shadow the Floyd for the rest of their career. Moody, spacey and terrifying at times, it's really the only Floyd album to have all 5 members playing on it. It's a psychedelic masterpiece that defines my high school years and the title track still makes my head dizzy, disturbed and emotional. Add this album to my desert island discs.
