    I am crayoning in this...

    KATE BUSH - Hounds Of Love / The Ninth Wave - EMI - 1986

    If I were on a desert island this would be essential. I think it is a pop masterpiece.

    Made in Japan: Deep Purple, the best live album of all time.
    The Joshua Tree: U2's finest hour and just a great album.
    Dark Side of the Moon: Pink Floyd, no explanation needed.
    Brothers: The Black Keys, just never tire of listening to this album
    Kick: INXS, just a fantastic album
    Rumours: Fleetwood Mac, simple one of the greatest albums every made.
    Appetite for Destruction: Guns n Roses, probably the best debut album of all time.

    Well Buckethead is a new one on me, haven't come across the name before.

    My second offering is this Genesis album. Considering that one of the songs is my favourite of all-time, A Trick Of The Tail could hardly be left at home. And allegedly it was Princess Diana's favourite, who would have thought that!

    Well then you're in for a treat, since Buckethead has over 200 solo albums to his name, all of different genres.

    So is this a list of 7 approximate favourite albums? Or is it 7 albums you'd like to be stuck on an island with? If the first:
    Slint- Spiderland
    Joy Division- Unknown Pleasures and Closer
    Violent Femmes- Violent Femmes
    Talking Heads- Remain in Light
    Failure- Fantastic Planet
    Iggy Pop and the Stooges- Raw Power
    If the 2nd, I would need some more variety:
    Slint- Spiderland
    Iggy Pop and the Stooges- Raw Power
    Violent Femmes- Violent Femmes
    Mindless Self Indulgence-Frankenstein Girls Will Seem Strangely Sexy
    Bob Dylan- Highway 61 Revisited
    Modest Mouse- The Moon and Antarctica
    Godspeed You! Black Emperor - F# A# ∞
    and I'm gonna slip in Big Black, either one of Atomizer or Songs about Fucking
    That looks good. Might want to add Gorillaz to the 2nd as well hmmmm
