I think they hit the perfect balance with PAGEANT, but the cool thing is, it matches the performance (bright and energetic) perfectly. The recording of FABLES (dry, murky and recessed) matches the music as well. I sometimes wonder what some of the FABLES songs would have sounded like with the recording job that PAGEANT got.

did you know that the strange clattering noise in "We Walk" on Murmur was Bill Berry and Mike Mills playing pool down the hall while Michael Stipe recorded his vocal tracks? you probably did, as i think that's not really a secret anymore. but i thought it was cool when i first heard about it.

Has anyone mentioned Salomon Burke - Don't Give Up on Me? A really great sounding great album.

Some of the discs I would feel are worthy of inclusion ...
Most Rush albums but in particular "Moving Pictures" and "Hemispheres"
Nils Lofgren "Acoustic Live"
Air "Moon Safari"
Kate Bush "Aerial"
Steely Dan "Cant Buy a Thrill" & "Aja"

If you 'have to' include Rush, I suppose the MFSL remaster of Moving Pictures is 'alright' and Hemispheres is actually quite pleasing sonically.

Incidentally, Hemispheres is my favorite Rush Album.

I hate lists, because I'm always behind and never up to date.

isn't N.E.R.D. rap? no matter how you look at it, rap is not rock.

How come Eric Clapton's MTV Unplugged is not on the list? I read John Grado's interview on this site and if he uses one his songs from that album as a reference, it should be good enough to be on this list. :-)

I think it's been mentioned, but Sufjan Stevens - Illinois. The best SQ of any album I've heard recently. The horns, guitar, drums, and vocals are crystal clear.

It's a great album, but it sounds like absolute crap. It's engineered by one of the industry's most infamous figures.
