No. 3: The Jimi Hendrix Experience, ‘Are You Experienced’ – Best Debut Hard Rock Albums

The Jimi Hendrix Experience, 'Are You Experienced'

As arguably the greatest guitarist of all time, Jimi Hendrix released the pinnacle psychedelic full-length ‘Are You Experienced’ with the Jimi Hendrix Experience in 1967.

The record is a masterpiece from front-to-back, featuring the immortal trips ‘Purple Haze,’ ‘Foxy Lady,’ ‘Hey Joe’ and ‘Are You Experienced?’ The British-American power trio found a new way to connect sound to the soul, and over 45 years later, ‘Are You Experienced’ remains fresh and experimental even when compared to the most avant-garde releases since. The ’60s staple is pure virtuosic genius and Jimi Hendrix’s phenomenal licks may never be surpassed.
