"Safe From Harm," the first cut on Blue Lines is one of my all-time favorite songs.
Nicolette is amazing.

I'm not including U2 because I'd go insane trying to decide between three or four albums.

1) PJ Harvey - To Bring You My Love. My favourite album by anyone, period. Dark, sexy, scary and emotionally charged to the max.

2) Pixies - Trompe le Monde. It's a hard task deciding between Pixies albums, but this one wins narrowly in the end.

3) Tori Amos - From the Choirgirl Hotel. I love the spooky fairytale atmosphere of this album, and Tori's voice just breaks my heart.

4) Howard Shore - the soundtrack to "Lord of the Rings - Return of the King". I'm a huge LoTR junkie,

5) Pink Floyd - The Wall. Mother of all concept albums.

Hmm, looking at my list it's a whole load of depressing music I'm taking with me on an island,

If you're talking about all-time favourites, then (changes frequently though):

1. The Clash - London Calling (actually their entire catalogue)
(Do I really need to explain this one?)
2. Joe Strummer and The Mescaleros - Streetcore
(Last great album by possibly the best lyricist of all time IMO, just listen to Get Down Moses or Ramshackle Day Parade)
3. The Smiths - The Queen Is Dead
(Very Cliche for a Smiths fan to name this one but except for the last song on there, it's a great collection)
4. U2 - Achtung Baby/JT (This has already been beaten to death)
5. REM - Automatic For The People

(I need more than 5 so honorable mentions to Springsteen, Morrissey, The Ramones, Radiohead...etc)

Edited - oh you wanted explanations!!

This is hard...umm...ok, I'm resisting and not putting more than 5...maybe...

Achtung Baby - u2:
I like unorgettable fire better, but the tone of this one fits in with my other options better. I also just love it.

Asleep in the Back - Elbow
I love this album. I can listen to it repeatedly. Happy and sad. Cathartic.

Set List - The Frames
Great album altogether. Upbeat, entertaining...

Bryter Layter - Nick Drake
I love Nick Drake. This album has a lot of my favorites on it. Definitely soothing and the guitar is amazing.

Love is Here - Starsailor
I couldn't be without starsailor. This album reminds me of great times and I just love it.

I need more than 5.

1. U2 - The Joshua Tree. Without this album, life is meaningless.
2. U2 - Achtung Baby. When U2 released this album it was like I had a new favorite band that was somehow one and the same with my old favorite band.
3. Marvin Gaye - What's Going On. Everything great about soul music in one beautiful package.
4. Jeff Buckley - Grace. One of the most perfect albums ever made by anyone, ever.
5. Bruce Springsteen - Born to Run. It's the Springsteen "Bible," so it's coming to the desert island with me.

Sweet jebus, hell if i know. I hate all albums right now.

No, actually i don't but I often list achtung baby as my favorite u2 album and yet i hardly ever listen to it. I've listened to the Dropkick Murphy's Live On St. Patrick's Day more in the last year than any u2 album...

In the last couple years i've gone back to Led Zeppelin's first album quite a bit.

I was hooked on Franz Ferdinand's for a while. Then the Killers' disc for a day or two.

Okay, how 'bout this..

Soundgarden - Superunknown
Fugees - The Score
Sneaker Pimps - Becoming X
Wilco - Being There
Johnny Cash - 16 Biggest Hits

I'm guessing we can't take greatest hits compilations.

Radiohead - Kid A
Placebo - Without You I'm Nothing
Tori Amos - Scarlet's Walk
U2 - Zooropa
AFI - Sing the Sorrow

I wanna take Manic Street Preachers and Bubba Sparxxx too! And tons of others!
