Artist with the most mystical albums
I preface with the disclaimer that being a realist, in mye opinion mythology in one’s musical entertainment need only go as far as the use of a tube amplifier.
I mean noh offence to progressive rocke, progressive rockers, their fans, or any of their many merrye offsprings:

In another thread I was recently alerted to the fact that Rick Wakeman did not in fact retire, now sitting at a round medieval like table with other prog rockers, somewhere near the centre of the earth . .

Since the Golden Age of the 70s, while punks, new wavers, grungees Brit Poppers & girl bands amongst others made their nefarious styles available to us all, Rick has maintained a steadfast direction.
Here are some of the legacies he hath bequeathed the worlde:

Sample of Rick Wakeman discography

The six wives of henry viii
Journey to the centre of the earth
The myths & legends of king arthur and the knights of the round table ****
No earthly connection
Silent nights
Country airs
The word and the gospels
A suite of gods
Time machine
Sea airs
Black nights at the court of ferdinand iv
Aspirant sunshadows
In the beginning

The list goes on & on . .

Who can surpass this surfeit. Never I verily sayeth – Long Live King Rick!

Rick, is that you? Full of yourself today aren't you!

Well I guess you deserve it (a little)

I tried to like Wakeman's work, I really did. But like similar cult figures (e.g., Todd Rundgren), I found that after 5 minutes or so, I had an unaccountable urge to trim my toenails. Or get that last bit of dirt out from that crack between the molding and the floorboards in my kitchen using a toothbrush. Or to get started doing my tax returns...

I'd vote for SUN RA. It's shocking how much the old self released stuff goes for on eBay.

Rick Wakeman versus doing a tax return.
Eeek, is there a window I can jump out?

The urge to absorb a new artist genre can evaporate when it soon proves to be less substance, devoid of reality, mostly mist.

Space is the place.
As in Hearts of Space ?
The local NPR affiliate in my area broadcasts Hearts of Space on Saturdays from 11:00 till midnight. Before that they do a show called Radio Avalon .
When I think of mystical I think of Hearts of Space. Especially when they play Ravi Shankkar and East Indian music.

For me it's Terrence McKenna. From "Dream Matrix Telemetry" : ;)

I somehow shattered the membrane
between myself and ordinary space.
I carried the trip into the room with me.
Very rapid transmission of data.
It only lasts a few hundred seconds
You awaken from a dream.

I can see it clearly,
after a time I think it sticks with you.
The details.
Some quality of seeing and understanding.
A dimension has been added to ordinary perception.
And you will have the complete experience in the dream.
It's in the body.
You can do this on the natch, it is not far away.
Outrageous possibilities lie immediately to hand
and are virtually only a toke away.
