I did this once in college and it took all night, claiming countless brain cells in the process. So when Brahsome came calling for my 10 desert island discs, I made sure to stop short after just five minutes.
Follow the link for the results, which aren’t nearly as hip-hop-laden as the Tribe cover art would lead you to believe.
Note: Bob Marley and Operation Ivy are the only artists to appear in both my college and current top 10.
Unwanted update: Chris has felt the need to post his top 10 desert island albums after the jump. It’s unhealthy how similar the brothers Mottram are.
Please keep in mind that I put this list together at work, without the aid of my iPod or CD collection, although I think I would end up with a similar list even with those luxuries:
Sublime – 40oz to Freedom
White Stripes – De Stijl
Operation Ivy – Energy
Arcade Fire – Funeral
The Shins – Chutes Too Narrow
The Beatles – White Album
Toots & the Maytals – Funky Kingston
The Roots – Come Alive
The Postal Service – Get Up
Interpol – Turn On the Bright Lights
