A Dilemna Of Epic Proportions...

A record store here in Lubbock,TX sells used c.d.'s of all genres for $8.00 each, or 3 for $20.00. That's perfectly fine...except I went in with only $10.00, not really expecting to find too many c.d.'s that would catch my interest. Predictably, I was terribly and horribly wrong. There were, in fact, FIVE c.d.'s that I found that I really wanted to buy...but of course, I could only choose one. So, the question I pose to you in this list is this: Assuming you had none of the following albums, which one would YOU have chosen?
1Isis
In The Absence of Truth


I don't own any Isis records, and I've been meaning to get one for a while now. I've heard both 'Oceanic' and 'Panopticon' on YouTube, but I've never heard this one.
2Opeth
Still Life


Because of Sputnik, really. I already own 'Ghost Reveries', and as good as it is, people say 'Still Life' and 'Blackwater Park' are better (they had 'BP', but it was $12.00). I sat down and listened to it at the "listening station" (a beat-up c.d. player in the corner), and the first three minutes of "The Moor" was enough to make me regret only having enough money for one c.d.
3Sigur Ros
( )


I think this is probably Jesus's favorite band (other than Becoming The Archetype, of course). I was absolutely surprised to find this album there; it wasn't where it was supposed to be. Sat down and listened to it, and the first three minutes of "Untitled 1" was enough to make me regret only having enough money for one c.d.
4Simon and Garfunkel
Bridge Over Troubled Water


I love 'Bookends', and I enjoy the song "The Only Living Boy In New York," so I've been looking for this album for a while now. The only reason I ended up putting it back is because I know that out of the five records on this list, this one would be most likely to be in the record store next time I come around.
5Wu-Tang Clan
Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)


Shouldn't need an explanation for this one. I've been growing my hip-hop collection since late last year, and of all the albums I want, this is the one most criminally missing.
