I always wonder about this. Let's say this is for real. You really are going to be stranded on a desert island and you really are bringing these albums with you. You folks who only have albums with male singers on them, would you really, REALLY AND TRULY, want to spend the rest of your life never hearing a female voice again? Really? I used to think, back when I read Pulse's lists, that it was a gay thing, only wanting to hear male voices. But then I met actual gay people, and that's not gay. None of the gays I've ever met would only want to hear male voices. So what is it? You ask me (I know no one did), that's warped. Never mind that those may be your favorite albums. Fine and all, but when you answered this, did you think about spending the rest of your life only hearing guy's voices?
Anyway, keeping it to one album per artist...
1. Kate Bush - The Dreaming
2. Peter Gabriel - PGIV (aka Security)
3. Happy Rhodes - Many Worlds Are Born Tonight
4. Jeff Buckley - Grace
5. Genesis - The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway
(I changed that last one about 10 times, but figured, hey, it's a double-album so would provide more listening per selection. My alternate would be Jane Siberry's When I Was A Boy, but ask me again tomorrow...)
