    10 favorite albums...

    It's summer, I'm bored. What are everyone's top 10 albums. Not necessarily what you think the 10 best albums of all time are, but rather the 10 albums you would take with you on a desert island. Here's my stab, in no particular order:

    1) "Sticky Fingers" the Rolling Stones
    2) "Decoration Day" Drive-By Truckers
    3) "Running on Empty" Jackson Browne
    4) "Let it Bleed" the Rolling Stones
    5) "Vitalogy" Pearl Jam
    6) "Blood Sugar Sex Magick" Red Hot Chili Peppers
    7) "August and Everything After" Counting Crows
    8) "Boys and Girls in America" the Hold Steady
    9) "Rage Against the Machine" Rage Against the Machine
    10) "Being There" Wilco


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I don't care what Cylent says:
    1.) Queensryche: Operation Mindcrime
    2.-10.) It doesn't really matter.

    Severely underrated album.

    Great list, except for the Abba. Jar of Flies is my favorite AIC album.

    Can we please retract her invite to the golf outing for this?

    On another note, it's amazing how many of the albums in this thread I have on my iPod.

    What? When did I say Queensryche wasn't up to snuff? I don't remember this at all.

    Yield is the soundtrack to my freshman year of college. As soon as I hear the intro to All Those Yesterdays, I'm back to 1998.

    I *am* a girl, you know. Sometimes I like girly dance music. Be grateful I didn't put any Britney on that list.
