This worked pretty well on another forum.

If you were stuck on a desert island with no hope of rescue, what would be those 10 albums? I'm usually open to exploring new music and I'd like to know what some of your favorite albums are. This also gives us a chance to see what other VJC members' tastes in music are. I challenge you to list your ten and I'll list mine.

A few rules/guidelines:

1. No compilations or live albums. Studio albums only. Some bands are better live, but it makes this more thought provoking and challenging.

2. Multiple CD albums are allowed, but try not to get carried away. (Ex: Smashing Pumpkins - Melon Collie and the Infinite Sadness - 2CD)

3. One album per artist. Solo material or different bands are allowed. (Ex: The Beatles and John Lennon, Simon and Garfunkel and Paul Simon)

Abraxas - good album. Main reason I went with Moonflower is the fact it is a double album (more music that way). And I didn't know we had this many Parrottheads on the forum :2thumbsup:

Yeah it was hard, I had to actually sit and think about something (not a normal occurrence :laugh2: ).
