Desert Island Discs


Recommended Posts

You've been marooned on a desert island and all you managed to salvage was a Marantz CR612 CD Hifi system with custom walnut stereo speakers and a solar-charged battery to provide endless power to the hifi. 

Then, you spot a sealed, waterproof box with your handwritten label on it: "My 5 Ultimate Albums". Survival can wait. You've got plenty of time. Right now it's time to ROCK!

What CDs are in the box?

Without delving into too much thought, these are off the top of my head.

I could spend weeks/years trying to narrow it down.

 

Queensryche - Operation Mindcrime. 

Lynch Mob - Wicked Sensation. 

W.A.S.P. - The Crimson Idol.

Skid Row - Slave To The Grind.

Roxus - Nightstreet.

Choosing a band called "Hammock" on a "desert island" list. Nice.

Hopefully you have a hammock on which to listen to "Hammock".

It would be difficult to narrow it down to just 5 and a few would undoubtedly change depending on when I made the selections.  Are you sure we couldn't fit a few more in that box if we used slim cases with just the front inserts?   At the moment I'd probably go with the following:

  • Def Leppard - Pyromania
  • Skid Row - S/T
  • Guns N' Roses - Appetite For Destruction
  • Eyes - S/T
  • Lillian Axe - Love & War

Solid choices, but I think adding a "best of" album may be cheating or a clever loophole. 

Well played.
