    Don't remember this thread being done before on this site (if it has apologies).

    I believe the show uses 10, but how about your Top 5 CDs to take?

    As I have just thought of this, haven't really had a good think about mine yet, but I know straight away that The The - Infected would be one.

    Also, if 'Best Of' albums would be allowed then Sinatra would also be one.

    Still considering the other 3 ......

    Really don't like doing these so I'm gonna cheat :D and choose "Best Of..." type albums

    FNG - Suicidal Tendencies, My all time favourite band, I like them so much I got one of their logos tattooed onto my chest.
    Reinventing The Steel - Pantera, Heavy Metal doesn't quite cover them.
    45 RPM - TheThe, although I would prefer London Town 1983-1993 but a 5cd box set is taking the persistance
    Tha Man Comes Around - Johnny Cash, No need to explain.
    Devil Without A Cause - Kid Rock, An album I never tire of.

    This must be the hardest post I've ever submitted ... but here goes:

    1) Tori Amos: 'Boys For Pele' (probably still the best of all her albums)

    2) Rachmaninov: 'All-night Vigil' (undecided as to which recording)

    3) Kate Bush: 'Hounds Of Love' (her finest work, though tough call between this and 'The Dreaming')

    4) Finzi: 'Cello Concerto/Ecologue For Piano And Strings' (the Naxos recording, no doubt)

    5) Del Amitri: 'Lousy With Love - The B Sides' (an under-rated gem of a 'best of' from an under-rated band)

    You rate this album that highly? It's a while since I listened to it but I didn't think it was as good as Under the Pink or Little Earthquakes.

    Will have to give it another listen to see if I can appreciate it more than I did.

    'Little Earthquakes' and 'Under The Pink' are class acts, no doubt. But 'Boys For Pele' has a certain maturity about it - like she's finally broken away, once and for all, from the early Tori (ever heard 'Y Kant Tori Read', incidentally? This was her real debut album, and sounds like 80s LA rock/pop!). Tracks like 'Marianne', 'Hey Jupiter', 'Caught A Lite Sneeze' and the sublime 'Putting The Damage On' are, of course, the stand-out numbers; but you've also got treats like 'Not The Red Baron', 'The Doughnut Song', 'Little Amsterdam', 'Way Down', 'Twinkle' and 'Muhammad, My Friend'. And that's not to forget the superb opener: 'Beauty Queen/Horses' ... which I couldn't get out of my head when I first heard it.

    I'd heard of "Y Kant...." put never saw it to pick it up, so no I never heard it.

    Do remember that "Caught a Lite Sneeze" was my fave track off of the album though. Going to give this a listen later.

    Go to hearinmyhead.com and choose diagnosed sound. Search about and you'll find MP3s of the 'Y Kant ...' album for free, cos its deleted now and she don't like talking about it.

    No worries. Here's the direct link to the page you're after - though check out the whole site for the thousands of bootlegs and deleted stuff, too. I've amassed quite a collection of obscure Tori tracks from here.
