Desert Island Records

Here are my responses to a recent NPR Music blog, Your Island Five: The Albums You Can't Live Without.

1. Joni Mitchell Ladies of the Canyon: for comfort

2. Soundgarden Badmotorfinger: for the angry times

3. Prince and the Revolution Purple Rain: to create an instant party

4. U2 The Unforgettable Fire: to be transported by the sound of hope

5. Wilco: Summer Teeth: for the range of emotion, shared with friends
(tied with) Sleater Kinney Dig Me Out: for the voices that say as much as the words

The runners-up:
Sonic Youth Sister
Arcade Fire Funeral
Rage Against the Machine The Battle of Los Angeles
Van Morrison Astral Weeks
Blind Faith Blind Faith
