If we're being serious...I've had very positive experiences with LSD in the past, though I don't feel any great need to do it again. It served its purpose.

One thing about my experiences that may have been somewhat atypical, though, was that it really didn't do much for my appreciation of music. In fact, it did the opposite - at peak intensity, I had no sense of time at all, no awareness of present, past or future, or of any ordered succession of perceptions and events, and so I didn't even hear music as such.

It seems to me that western classical music, which is all about development over time, is especially ill-suited to psychedelic experience.

However, other people report different experiences, so I guess you'll all have to try for yourself. Counterpoint to OP: do LSD while listening to Messiaen's Turangalila-symphonie.
