Albums for a deserted island

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
The first time I heard the question of "what albums would you take to a deserted island?" was back in the mid-1980's. It was on the weekly radio show the Metalshop. They used to have a segment where they would ask a musician what album they would take. I have done this on my blog once or twice, but it has been at least a year so I thought it was high time to do it again. One album is not enough so you get to choose five albums. The only rules are.......

1)Yes, it has to be hard rock or metal.
2)No greatest hits or best of albums.

***So what five albums do you take with you to a deserted island?

I think I'd be pretty bored pretty quick if I could only take HR/HM albums. Iron Maiden's Piece of Mind is the only one I can think of that might make my list of five albums if I could choose from anything. Or maybe Voi Vod's Nothingface.

OK, OK ... having seen these other posts, I need to cheat and add five.

Van Halen -- s/t
Led Zeppelin -- IV
Black Sabbath -- s/t
Tool -- Aenima
Deep Purple -- Machine Head

I can't include the Beatles as hard rock--sorry, Rock of Ages. But Revolver would make it onto my five-album classic rock list!

Oh yes, Mark, I also wanted to puch this to 20 comments for you.
