    Lists like this are so hard for me because musical tastes shift so much. I think it's fair to say we all go through phases with our music, then abandon it for years, then circle back. I'm sure I'd get sick of some of this stuff in a matter of weeks, if not days. I'm also assuming we can't include compilation type albums or our own mixed playlists, which makes it all the more harder. One thing I will say about technological advancements in the way we hear music: "thank God for I-Pods because of the countless playlists we can make."

    If it were based on right now:

    1. Buckethead- Pike 65
    2. Megadeth-Rust in Peace
    3. Metallica- Load
    4. Black Sabbath- Heaven & Hell
    5. Alter Bridge- Blackbird
    6. Alice in Chains- Dirt
    7. Blind Melon
    8. Pink Floyd- Dark Side of the Moon
    9. Bon Bon Vivant- Live at the Circus
    10. Beatles- Revolver

    So, I guess "greatest hits" albums and boxed sets are not allowed? Otherwise my list would be much different...just to ensure maximum value. As it is I included a bunch of live albums, which, I guess, acts as a greatest hits...not sure it's allowed. But I'm stranded on a desert island...gimme a break.

    Zep - Physical Graffiti (seems to be a popular choice)
    VH - um...let's go with the debut
    Pink Floyd - Delicate Sound of Thunder
    Iron Maiden - Live After Death
    AC/DC - Ugh! tough choice...Highway to Hell, I guess...
    Billy Joel - Songs in the Attic
    Jeff Beck - Live at Ronnie Scott's
    Queen - Return of the Champions
    Ozzy - Diary of a Madman
    Rolling Stones - Let it Bleed
