Is There Just One Single Album That Does It For You, Completely? Just One.

If you somehow got stuck in a situation (lol) and had to spend the rest of your life completely by yourself, all alone, on a desert island ... and, as part of your situation you only got to choose one album to spend the entire rest of your life with.

Let’s say, some weird circumstance, and you also had at your complete disposal the system of your dreams, that you had assembled thru the years. And thank goodness you were a prepper and you thought ahead to install a solar power system, so power would never be a problem either.

Kind of like Tom Hanks on that island, except instead of a just a soccer ball, you had your dream stereo setup and one album only.

One album and that’s it. Got to pick one. Not necesssarily your all time favorite album, just one you could live with for the rest of your life.

Is there any album that just completely does it for ya, on that level?

I’ll kick things off by sharing mine: Steely Dan, Aja



Oh, I forgot, you've got a kickass headphone setup too ... so we better make it 2 albums. 

My second one is Fleetwood Mac, Rumors

You put so much effort into your original stipulation only to negate it with your first comment. These will do for now. 

  • Current 93 – Thunder Perfect Mind
  • Roy Harper - Flashes From the Archives of Oblivion 

One album on a desert island ? I'd go with tribal ambient music. Suspended Memories - Forgotten Gods.

“Is there any album that just completely does it for ya, on that level?”


Beck - Sea Change

Level 42 - Running in the Family

That's how I'm thinking today anyway...
