If you were stranded on an island and somebody granted you 10cds from your collection and a "Discman", what albums would you choose? Here are mine, in no particular order: 1. Radiohead - "The Bends" My first and fav RH album. 2. Radiohead - "Pablo Honey" Odd choice as far as critical acclaim is concerned. But I can't really hit fast forward on this disc. 3. Lush - "Split" This is the disc that made me a shoegazer. Dark, ethereal, haunting, depressing. Inspired me to take up photography. 4. Delerium - "Karma" Essential electronica. So lush and organic. Not experimental/ambient like their earlier work, not the commercial/radio friendly fluff that I got after the duo split. 5. Nada Surf - "Proximity Effect" Clever lyrics, college/nerd rock at its best 6. The Cranberries - "Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We" They never reached these lofty heights again. 7. Marilyn Manson - "Lest We Forget" Manson has too many good songs. Had to the pick the best of. 8. Placebo - "Without You I'm Nothing" 9. Pet Shop Boys - "Pop Art" Again, PSB has too many goodies, so I have to take as many on one disc as I can This one's actually two discs, so I'm cheating a bit. Otherwise, I'll take "Discography" 10. Tegan and Sara - "So Jealous" Best disc I bought in 2004, by a landslide. Saw them live last week. It's indie pop perfection.
