NewsJack Toledano's Favorite 'Desert Island' CDs

Posted on Wednesday, February 14 2007 @ 01:30:16 CST by Duncan Glenday
  • Judas Priest: British Steel - this album enabled Priest to turn the corner as a forerunner of classic metal, please see my "Past & Present Classics" for this CD

  • Kiss: Alive - Kiss at their peak, musically & live, IMHO

  • Iron Maiden: Powerslave -Iron Maiden's very best studio release

  • Boston: Boston - just about every song is a highlight

  • Jethro Tull: Aqualung - as a Tull fan, this pick may sound cliché, but who could argue over how great it is?

  • Symphony X: Divine Wings Of Tragedy - even my kids love this classic example of great prog metal

  • Led Zeppelin : IV - Black Dog, Rock & Roll, Stairway, Misty Mountain Hop, not only does this album really rock, it is very diverse for only 8 songs

  • Deep Purple: Machine Head - incredibly, "Smoke On The Water" is probably the 5th best song on this album

  • Soundgarden: Superunknown - musically the best thing to come out of Seattle IMO

  • Beatles: Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - don't stand up and walk out on me just yet (har har), this album shattered the mold of the 10 song - 2 minute and 45 second song format (with one month record-to-release) by being the first concept album, and took an incredible (for its time) 8 months to produce

  • Hits: 4343
