Desert Island - 5 Albums

    Since we're on a somewhat musical roll, time to re-make a thread from days gone by. You're stranded on a desert island and you can have 5 albums with you--which 5 do you bring? (Sorry for the old time album reference: could say 5 CDs, but the oldtimer in me just finds albums feeling more natural. Now get off my lawn and turn the music down up).

    One rule: no frickin' compilations/greatest hits packages allowed. Gotta be original release albums that stand on their own merit. (over/under on how long til that rule's broken: 5 posts).

    The first 4 are easy for me, and the 5th spot is usually a revolving door:

    1. U2, 'Joshua Tree'
    2. Rolling Stones, 'Sticky Fingers'
    3. The Who, 'Who's Next'
    4. REM, 'Lifes Rich Pageant'
    5. Jayhawks, 'Tomorrow the Green Grass'
  2. 1. Rolling Stones, "Exile on Main Street."
    2. Bob Dylan, "Bringing It All Back Home."
    3. Black Crowes, "The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion."
    4. Dwight Yoakam, "Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc."
    5. Bruce Springsteen, "Born to Run."

    Beatles — Revolver
    R.E.M. — Life's Rich Pageant
    Wilco — Being there (get a double album!)
    Ryan Adams — Heartbreaker
    The Who — Who's Next

    Getting five is very hard. My mind could change in over the hours.

    Automatic for the People needs more respect from the REM side.

    U2 - Unforgettable Fire
    REM - Automatic
    Sgt. Pepper
    Weezer Blue
    Fuck, how did I forget the Pixies - Doolittle

    I could live with that group.

    3 for Life's Rich Pageant thus far. Quite pleased to see that for what seems like an oft-overlooked album.

    That would have been my No. 6, although "Automatic" is a strong contender too.
