Probably not my most favorite or the best albums, but these ones will best stand up the repeatability factor. This list probably changes daily (hourly?)

The Beatles - Abbey Road
Led Zeppelin - I
New Order - Low-Life
Rachels - The Sea and The Bells
Depeche Mode - Black Celebration
Pink Floyd - The Wall
Belly - Star
Orbital - The Brown Album
Sonic Youth - Goo
Bowery Electric - Lushlife



Depeche Mode? I'm looking at you in a whole new light now PF82.

And shit, I need Tom Waits - Mule Variations on there as well.

Like the Johnny Cash American Recordings box a lot. Also a fan of the Tom Waits reference. Although I gotta go with Rain Dogs. Love the guitar of all things on that album. Lots of big names on that one as well - Keith Richards, John Lurie, Tony Levin, GE Smith - but it was still mostly Waits playing.

Herm....Stupid Dream by Porcupine Tree should have made my list. There's a few Pineapple Thief CDs that kick serious ass too. Umphree's McGee's new CD is a real winner too. Lots of good stuff lately, esp. on the prog scene.

Ben Folds Five - Whatever and Ever, Amen
Eels - Electro-Shock Blues
Pixies - Doolittle
Weezer - Pinkerton
Wilco - A Ghost is Born
Beatles - Revolver
Pavement - Brighten the Corners
Ween - The Mollusk
Self - Gizmodgery
Rentals - Return of the Renals

Strange how R.E.M. didn't even make my list despite being my favorite band of all-time...well, second to the Monkees.

Okay, if we're going the Greatest Hits route, I'm modifying my list some.

1. Van Halen - "Best of Both Worlds"
2. Guns N Roses - "Appetite for Destruction"
3. Def Leppard - "Vault"
4. Puddle of Mudd - "Life on Display"
5. Foo Fighters - "Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace"
6. The Cars - "Complete Greatest Hits"
7. Huey Lewis and the News - "Greatest Hits"
8. Peter Gabriel - "Shaking the Tree"
9. The Police - "The Police: 2 CD Anthology"
10. Queen - "Greatest Hits I, II and III Anthology"

Also, if I somehow smuggled in five more, I'd probably bring the following:

11. Kiss - "Double Platinum"
12. Duran Duran - "Greatest"
13. Billy Joel - "1973-97 Complete Hits Collection"
14. David Bowie - "Best of Bowie"
15. Alice in Chains - "Nothing Safe"

Stone Temple Pilots - "Thank You" would definitely be a candidate, too.

I love Whatever and Ever, Amen - both of the first two Ben Folds Five albums are among my favorites, as is Revolver. I also forgot two of my other favorites which I don't think have been referenced:

Northern Lights-Southern Cross - The Band
The Way it Is - Bruce Hornsby @ the Range

There is some shitty fucking music on this list.

I did consider the Clash's first album and it is probably my favorite, and their best. I would want to take all of their records if I could, even their so-called "gay reggae shit". Which I dont think is gay at all. I wish I could make a second list.

I think I should have considered Document by REM....I can lsiten to that anytime. Automatic for the People was pretty good too...but Document is a killer CD.

quick and off the top of my head:

1 Bob Mould - Workbook
2 Bob Mould - Black Sheets of Rain
3 Rush - 2112
4 Tool - Lateralus
5 Lamb of God - Sacrament
6 Ministry - Psalm 69
7 Dredg - Catch Without Arms
8 Simon and Garfunkel - I have the 3 disk collected works but if that's not fair I go with Parsley Sage Rosemary and Thyme
9 Lush - Gala
10 Emerson Lake and Palmer - again tough call cause I got the collected works. Guess Brain Salad Surgery if I have to choose but I love the blue CD from the collected works.




You're pretty on the inside,
That's better than not pretty at all,
You're pretty on the inside,
Too bad I'm an outside kinda pretty guy.

I'm fine with the gay reggae shit as well - hell, I think This is Radio Clash was one of the best tracks they've ever done, and its even beyond the gay reggae shit. At least they had the balls to mix some other shit in some times.

Keep in mind, it's not their best album - its one of ten you have to listen to over and over.

That's actually a good list in terms of different types of music. Bob Mould is a great songwriter.
