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



Trees of Eternity - Hour of the Nightingale

I've had it 7 years and it still gives me goosebumps every time I play it.

As everyone mentions, it’s hard to choose just one.  If I had to do it then I’d take “Genesis - The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway”.  
It has a little of various modes on it and is still one (ONE) of my all time Genesis favorites.

Hopefully I’d find a wreckage somewhere with “Yes - Close to the Edge” in it so I could have two though.  

One Album, from beginning to end??

Steely Dan’s Aja is hard to top.

But for me its Boston’s debut album. You can’t top Brad Delp’s smooth vocals and Tom Schultz exploding on the guitar and rockin’ on the pipe organ.
