10 Albums, 2 Thru 5

So I'm just a bit behind here. Like, a week.

For those of you just tuning in, I'm participating in a 10 albums I'd take to a desert island challenge, hosted over on which I'm co-running with a buddy of mine. It's still coming together, so don't judge it yet! 

So here, I'll post 2, 3, 4, and 5.

2 - Pink Floyd, album: A Momentary Lapse of Reason

On the turning Away

Probably one of the easiest songs to play on the guitar. Just an overall excellent song.

3 - Aerosmith - O Yeah

This was tough, cause I like almost every one of their songs... Except "Taste of India". What a terrible song.

Anyway, I'm going to go with an oldie

Seasons of Wither

4 - U2 - Rattle and Hum

Van Diemen's Land

I'm noticing a trend here, all of these songs are kinda slow. Guess I've just been a mello kinda mood lately. Perhaps the next challenge will be specifically about high energy stuff... Might be a short list...

5 - Lynyrd Skynyrd - Second Helping

This was the first southern rock album I'd ever bought, and it really cemented itself in my memory. There are a lot of great tracks on this album, so I'm going to pick my two favorites from it.

5a. The Balad of Curtis Lowe

5b I Need You

I love the guitar solos in this song.

Well, that should do it for catching up... I'll be back on Monday. I should be able to keep up from this point... Was a heck of a week!
