From Rivera
The quintessential psychedelic album. Yes, but just -listen- to the harmonies!

As near to perfect a psychedelic album as you're ever going to find. Best songs are White Rabbit, Somebody To Love and My Best Friend. Whether playing electric or acoustic, the 'Plane delivers. Grace may have been the best female vocalist of the time.

A psychedelic masterpiece! Even listening to it in 2018, it has a freshness which can't be heard in modern chart music. Every track on this album could have been a chart topper back in 67. 'Somebody to Love' and 'White Rabbit' are the top of the pile but there are other hidden gems on this album. Buy it and discover...

For all its fanfare, this album is surprisingly subtle, creating an effortless vibe throughout. The nuanced nature of this debut makes it an accessible, pleasing journey into early-era psych-influenced rock.

One of those increasingly rare albums where every song could be a hit single. A classic album that deserves to have a similar reputation to albums such as Sgt Pepper & Pet Sounds.

Key tracks: She Has Funny Cars, Somebody to love, Today, 3/5 Of A Mile In 10 Seconds, White Rabbit

Vox populi, vox Dei: alla fine la penso anch'io come la maggior parte degli appassionati o critici e ritengo che "Surrealistic pillow" sia il miglior album dei Jefferson Airplane.

Amazing album. Deserves top 100 much more than Bon Iver or Weezer.

White Rabbit and Somebody to Love are so incredible. They balance out the weak parts of the album, making for a solid sound throughout
