5 CDs You Can't Live Without

Gil Mantera's Party Dream Saturday, June 24, at the Lime Spider in Akron
Ultimate Donny is the singer-guitarist for Gil Mantera's Party Dream.

1. Kraftwerk, Computer World. "Kraftwerk clearly demonstrates their technological and musical wizardry here. I've been enjoying having my mind blown by this record from my dad's collection since I was a kid."

2. Public Enemy, It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back. "The Bomb Squad nails it on this one. This album's power is never-ending."

3. Yes, Close to the Edge. "When a unique vocalist and brilliant musicians combine for the good of the world, Close to the Edge is what happens. There's nothing wrong with 20-minute songs."

4. Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II. "Another example of a powerful and distinguishable vocalist connecting the dots with his band. Heavy, bluesy, heart-wrenching -- Led Zeppelin rules!"

5. Beatles, Rubber Soul. "It's just one of the records I wouldn't want to live without."
