I'm feelin' the post with Milli Vanilli. That was my shit back in the day.

Along with the Juice soundtrack, but that aint gonna make this list.

John Coltrane: Crescent

Jimi Hendrix: Blues

Willie Colon: Crime Pays

Nas: Illmatic

The Allman Brothers Band: Eat A Peach

Shit, it just too hard to name five.

Honorable mentions:

Freddie Hubbard: Sky Dive

Led Zeppelin: Physical Graffiti

Sade: The Best Of

Alice In Chains: Dirt

Duke Ellington: Black Brown & Beige

There's too much music in the world to narrow down to five, but here's what I got spinning now:

Keith Jarrett: The Koln Concert

just some ones off the top of my head without repeating artists.

Sam Cook- Live at Harlem Square 1963

NMH- In the Aeroplane Over the Sea

Bob Dylan- Another Side of Bob Dylan

Elliott Smith- Self Titled

Jeff Buckley- Live at Sin-e

Wilco- Yankee Hotel Foxtrot

The Beatles- Beatles for Sale

Andrew Bird- The Swimming Hour

Big Star- Third/Sister Lovers

The Mountain Goats- All Hail West Texas

Pavement- Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain

Red House Painters- 1

I'm leaving out some doozies but it's late. Fuck a 5 albums. Depends on the mood and how much i've listened to someone lately. Often i'll start listening to an artist, and then listen to all of their songs and then switch around a bit. I don't do "mix tapes" very often.
