Five 'desert island' albums


Mmmmmh… I literally have listened to these hundreds and hundreds of times so they are solid ones to cover the needs. Not in any special order:

Toots & the Maytals - Pressure Drop - The Definitive Collection

RIP - No Te Muevas + Zona Especial Norte

Torazinas - Fresas, Coca Y Champán

Aphex Twin - Selected Ambient Works 85-92

Radiohead - Hail To The Thief


Sonny Rollins - East Broadway Rundown
Black Flag - Who’s go the 10 1/2?
Wu Tang Clan - Enter the 36 Chambers
Christian Death - Iron Mask
Ministry - Mind is a Terrible Thing




Burial - Untrue
Vangelis - Blade Runner O.S.T
Deftones - White Pony
Radiohead - Kid A
Miles Davis - Kind of Blue


After a bit of mulling, I think it would come down to these:

Portishead - Dummy
Leftfield - Rhythm and Stealth
Amon Tobin - Supermodified
BOC - geogaddi
The Mars Volta - Deloused at the comatorium


Must pick one per genre or deliberation will never end:
Rock- OK Computer, Radiohead
Jazz- Bitchs Brew, Miles Davis
Classical- Late String Quartets, Beethoven (Alban Berg Quartett)
Hip Hop- Damn, Kendrick Lamar
Electronic-Pre Millennium Tension, Tricky

Could make 5 more of these lists which are certainly no worse


Now someone of you has to create a Spotify playlist with all the stuff in it :smiley:


Music for 18 musicians- Steve Reich

69 Love Songs- Magnetic Fields

Beggars Banquet- Stones

TNT- Tortoise

Let My Children Hear Music- Mingus


Tough one, but:

Pharoah Sanders: “Summun Bukmun, Umyun” (or any of a number of PS albums)
Santana: “Caravanserai”
Junior Wells: “Hoodoo Man Blues”
Miles Davis: “In A Silent Way”
Chris Whitley: “Living With The Law” (or “Hotel Vast Horizon”)


Crap am i going to have to change my list to fit black saint?? :triumph:


Reinbert de leeuw: satie early works part 1
Tool: lateralus
The cure: disintegration
Radiohead: kid A
Yo yo ma & Emanuel ax: brahms cello sonates


A hundred style points for Pharoah Sanders. I couldn’t pick just one of them so I picked Alice Coltrane’s Journeys in Satchidananda instead.



Daniel Schmidt ‎– In My Arms, Many Flowers
Godspeed You! Black Emperor - F♯ A♯ ∞
Stars of the Lid — The Tired Sounds of Stars of the Lid
Talk Talk - Laughing Stock
Micheal Hurley - Wolfways


The Dead C - Harsh 70’s Reality
Broadcast - Tender Buttons
Autechre - Draft 7.30
Outkast - Aquemini
Depeche Mode - Black Celebration


Sorry, I must have misunderstood. I thought you meant BoC had a new album coming out (I was anxious to read about it).


Eh, that’s what I meant but this will have to do, for now…


J Dilla - Donuts
The Other People Place - Lifestyles of the Laptop Cafe
Actress - Splazsh
Burial - Untrue
HTRK - Psychic 9-5 Club


I own and love that Alice Coltrane album - it’s a great one. Wall Street Journal just had an article about an up and coming jazz harpist, and she had a couple of quotes about AC as inspiration.


New “contribution”

Could be a mastered version of and old track.

PLEASE old tune vol 1 track 36!
