One of the best Psychedelic record, inspired by Pink Floyd "saucerful of secrets"

Extra Extra ordinary. Anyone who hasn't given these 5 stars should be banned from having an opinion about music .

To me White Noise's "An Electric Storm" is THE best psychedelic record ever! Wish they'd made more albums with this outstanding combination of creative spirits!

track 7 is awesome but i feel the rest hasn't aged well and sounds a bit "Austin Powers" if you know what i mean. :D
well i resent keeping an album for one good track so i ditched it
track 7 was due for inclusion on the planned second volume of Kevin Martins Jazz Satellites compilations which would have sold the problem if it had ever happened.
Interestingly Mike Patton is a fan of White Noise ‎– An Electric Storm , which is a pretty good endorsement

This groundbreaking album was light years ahead of it's time for 1969 !
Still on catalogue to order in the early 1980s which indicates sales were healthy twelve years on from release date.
Well done to island for releasing it.
A masterpiece.

in the middle of the psychedelic stereotype of his time
to much maybe, to much LSD
sadly no good surprises after several plays
there is a serious lack of dazzling, it is flat...
good for sleeping badly, tasteless melodic pleasure
their singing is a cliché.
the musical arrangement is correct.
but the album remains oppressive and depressing.
there are a lot of murky passages.
experimental technology is there. but does not solve everything.
it makes me feel like I'm in a bad trip.
the album could be used in a house of horrors
or in a The Addams Family movie
in the same stereotype, and less obscure, i prefer
the album Cauldron by Fifty Foot Hose
the album Riddles of the Sphinx by Mike Ratledge
the album Psichedelica by Piero Umiliani
Peace

Brilliantly produced and unique. I still have my original copy and play it occasionally. If you watch/listen to "The Forbidden Planet" you will hear where David Vorhaus obtained some of the samples which he painstakingly cut and looped on audio tape ( probably why he didn't do another album like this on)

I have a UK pink rim Island label, on thick vinyl, with ILPS-9099 on the front cover, and rear, and spine, and labels, no barcode, but no mention in the listings here

The album starts with a track that could be filed under TripHop today. The sound is incredible when you imagine who less electronic equipment was available at the time of production. "Firebird" is a hymn for all the creative minds out there. This album was way ahead of it's time.
