    I've just been thinking about mine, and I've come down to a good selection, which I think is true to the question.

    In no particular order:

    Tom Waits - 'Closing Time'
    The Cure - 'Pornography'
    Depeche Mode - 'Violator'
    Talking Heads - 'Remain In Light'
    The Smiths - 'The Smiths'

    What's yours?

    maybe

    belle and sebastian - if you're feeling sinister
    the smiths - the queen is dead
    talking heads - more songs about buildings and food
    dead kennedys - fresh fruit for rotting vegetables
    nick drake - five leaves left

    or maybe 5 completely different albums.

    Maybe. It's up to you. I'm only asking for whatever you feel at the time. I'm mainly trying to get a feel for the broader music tastes of the community here, besides simply Morrissey.
