I just went through the 13 pages, i cannot believe you were the only one referring to Fleetwood Mac, and especially Dreams.

I also use The Dance.

I am genuinly surprised that it was not mentioned so far but... Allan Taylor - Colour To The Moon 

Recorded with Stockfish Records this track is meant to testing HiFi equipment :)

The whole album "Closer to the Music" from Stockfish Records is audiophile but i use this track in particular to test equipment

Some time lurker here. Decided to officially subscribe to this awesome forum!

 

First of all, Hi, hope everything's awesome and working out for you guys.

 

Secondly, my experience in the audiophile world isn't that broad, but I love music. I have in my collection a little bit of everything including Jacky Terrasson, Eagles, Mark Nauseef, Dr. Dre (2001 was a superb production in terms of music), T.Yamamoto, Pink Floyd, the Kronos Quartet, among other awesome pieces that I use constantly when dialing in new audio equipment, specially car audio speakers/drivers.

 

So, after that brief introduction, I would like to suggest an interesting, brilliant, unique, poetic, melodic and DARK concept album by songwriter Robi "Draco" Rosa. This album, Vagabundo, was recorded by Phil Manzanera and is full of instruments, full of cohesion. From electric guitars, through the magnificent Hammond B4 to classical and wind instruments all mixed beautifully.

 

The album is one my personal favorites and has that cult gem stigma that you can't stop listening from time to time. One thing, the cd is in spanish, but it shouldn't matter to appreciate the immersive mood that's set throughout this album, closing with an incredible song with an impeccable arrangement in "Amantes Hasta El Fin".
