First album i bought with me own money was, I think, OK Computer by Radiohead
Last: Double Negative by Low
Desert island: too tough but maybe Endtroducing by DJ Shadow for the sense of variety and cause it’d fit really nicely with desert island sunsets and nights
Last album listened to: Spiderland by Slint
