Long considered by many to be perhaps the greatest debut album of the rock era, the TV channel VH1 named Are You Experienced? the 5th greatest album of all time in 2001. In 2003, the album was ranked number 15 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. In 2005 it was selected for permanent preservation in the National Recording Registry at the Library of Congress.As emblematic of its time as of its sorcerer-like creator, 1967's Are You Experienced unleashed Jimi Hendrix onto a world in the midst of such cultural and musical shakeups that it really didn't seem as "far out" as it actually was. It wasn't just Hendrix's virtuosic skill as a pure player that was so impressive; it was, even more, the range and scope of sheer sound that he coaxed, cajoled, and ripped out of his instrument. "Purple Haze," "Manic Depression," and "I Don't Live Today" filled ears with indelible sonic images, and songs like "Foxy Lady" and "Fire" pointed the way toward a new brand of rock-charged soul music. And how about a hand for drummer Mitch Mitchell? !! Simply an Incredible Album.
