Desert Island Album Draft - 15th Anniversary Edition - 50 Rounds in the books, sign up now for KP's listening program


Recommended Posts

Finally a Linda run!  I've been ready to pick this one for 20 rounds or so, one of the all time great pop vocalists, she never released a live album until last year, which was a concert recorded for HBO in 1980, but released in 2019, this shows Linda at the very top of her game and powers.  An amazing voice and the recent documentary is well worth checking out.. one of my favorite releases of 2019...

Catch up pick as I fell out early last night 

34.17    Black Sabbath- Heaven and Hell(1980)

My second from this band but with Dio on vocals it's like a whole different but still awesome band. This is the second non-Beatles album I ever bought with my own money back in 1981 and Ive loved it ever since. The 3 previous albums had gotten further and further from the classic Sabbath sound and this one does to but in a good way. After the firing of Ozzy and a 2 year break the addition of Dio added new life and energy to the band. Yes there are a couple clunkers but the title track is one of my all time favs so this has to be on my island.

Heaven and Hell

Die Young

Guess I am drafting backup kickers for a while.

Round 34) Doggystyle - Snoop Dogg (1993)

Who Am I (What's My Name)?

Gin and Juice

Dammit, that was going to be my next one- another I was surprised lasted so long.  Guess I have to dig a little deeper for my next couple rap picks.

Considering the guy whose shtick is hip hop always hated that era's popular West Coast sound from '93-'96, it's not really a stunner. Yeah, Dre, I said it. Your P-Funk synths nearly killed rap music.

confirmed, just saw them hit the list

Had a dream you did a full-length review of Run The Jewels 2. Can't remember what you said exactly but it had to do with "false charm." 

I don't know what that means, but damn if I didn't wake up to that. I need to get out of this thread.

***Request for judge's decision***

I would like to switch my last pick. Same artist but different album.  I would like to substitute Whitney: The Greatest Hits as it contains previously unreleased material.  If allowed, please swap All at Once for The Star Spangled Banner. 

Not allowed. The rule is no greatest hits, new material doesn't matter (every greatest hits in the cd era tacks on one new song)

34.34 Creedence Clearwater Revival - Green River 1969

I love this record and I am pleased to get it so late.  This is a great one from start to finish.  Lodi and Commotion are two other songs I could have picked that I love.

Green River

Bad Moon Rising

I'm not sure if I've ever seen a "usual" Sandler movie, but Punch Drunk Love was fantastic.

Maybe a movie club theme?  Actors in unusual roles for them?  I.e., Jim Carrey in Eternal Sunshine, this, etc.?  Of course, last time I inadvertently suggested a theme, it was a disaster.

I rewatched Punch Drunk Love recently and I disliked it as much this time as I did when it came out. PTA is either a grand slam or a total whiff for me.

For me, that's still his only whiff.  I've tried with that movie 3x now, and don't get why it shows up on critic lists.

Fair enough, but you aren't the only one taking a sprinkling of rap, and I thought that would be one taken a lot earlier.  There is another big artist that I don't like and I am also a little surprised hasn't gone from the genre too.  

This draft is full of surprises like that though - ie I didn't know that RHCP seem to be just about universally disliked.  ;)

Punch Drunk Love is an uncomfortable watch. It's still a sort of accurate potrayal of the pent-up rage of the everyman in America. The scene where he's talking about the DJ who "tells it like it is" on the air is sort of revealing and stunning.

True dat on the first. But Doggystyle was never really revered as much as The Chronic, so I'm not too surprised.

As for the latter, I skipped the RHCP hate. There are silent ones among us who like the Peppers and all the machismo they bring to the adult alternative genre.

Did you like The Master? I did not get that one at all, despite a brilliant cast.

PDL, The Master and Inherent Vice were all pretty bad imo. Boogie Nights, There Will Be Blood, Magnolia and Phatom Thread are 4 of the best movies of the last 25ish years.

I have a theory that she is obsessed with becoming president and hasn't given up.  She is "biding" her time until the Dems realize that she is their best hope and beg her to come on board as VP.  Also becomes the best "fill-in" if they decide Joe becomes to much of a liability (health/voter questioning health).  

"biden" her time, please

I like Punk Drunk Love, Inherent Vice was a mess but held my interest for a while. I could not follow The Master at all. If there was a point to it, it was lost on me. I have not seen Phantom Thread - will check it out as I love the rest of those.

Yeah, I thought it was great.  With that, Boogie, TWBB, and Phantom Thread, I think PTA has released some of the top movies of those decades.

I've gone back to page 260 and added whatever songs I could to the Spotify playlist.

 

Just give a shout out with your pick if you need for someone to add it to Spotify...

i don't see "It's All Too Much" or "Hey Bulldog" on the list (from my Yellow Submarine pick)

TIA ✌
