NewsDuncan Glenday's Favorite 'Desert Island' CDs

Posted on Wednesday, February 14 2007 @ 01:18:27 CST by Duncan Glenday
  • Van Der Graaf Generator : Pawn Hearts - I grew up playing this album when it was still current. I rediscovered it recently, and was blown away all over again

  • Genesis : Selling England By The Pound - The ultimate Genesis, the showcase for their brilliance, irreverence, and very British sense of humor

  • Pink Floyd : Dark Side Of The Moon - The Floyd by which others are judged

  • Camel : The Snowgoose - When I was 16, I picked this up in a bargain bin for about $1, and have been a Camel convert ever since

  • Marillion : Misplaced Childhood - An emotional concept piece that leaves a lump in the throat - approachable, yet one of the best neo-prog albums ever

  • Symphony X : V : The New Mythology Suite -This album has incredible scope. Very sophisticated. One of America's most underrated bands, appreciated more in Europe than at home

  • Dream Theater : Metropolis Part 2 - Scenes from a Memory - Love them or hate them, Dream Theater defined - and still defines - their genre. This was the CD that first turned me onto the band

  • Yes : Yessongs - There is no finer live album.

  • Opeth : Still Life - Probably the best album Opeth ever released - with Ghost Reveries following a close second.  Their symphonic-prog-meets-death-metal is intriguing, and masterfully executed.

  • Hits: 4561
