The new Katatonia "Dethroned & Decrowned" is pretty good too. Best record since GCD.

Anathema "Hindsight" & "Weather Systems" are both beautifully produced. Good albums too.

I disagree on Weather Systems. I wasn't too impressed by it production wise.

I absolutely adore the album though. It's so good.

Did you ever hear the 5.1 mix they released in lossless on the website for weather systems?

No. I never bothered getting a 5.1 downmix.

I do have the LPs though.

heh, I havent either. I was hoping youd be able to tell me if it was worth it :p

I have the 5.1 version. Should've said that was the one I was referring to. Definitely worth it.

Moving Pictures by Rush has been already mentioned a couple of times, but I'll mention it again, as in my view this should be a benchmark by which all other productions are measured. I'm not really a great fan of Rush, but this album is recorded and mastered to perfection.

 

A couple of other surprisingly good sounding albums that I haven't seen mentioned here yet:

  Iron Maiden - Powerslave

  Morphine - Good

Dream Theater's self titled album (2013) is going to take a few more listens through, but thus far has been excellent.

Dunno if anyone has mentioned it but Agalloch's "Marrow of the Spirit" is an incredible sounding doom album. My favourite

well without jokes Rhapsody on Fire is a great band, i always thought that is a band like a crossover of speed metal and opera. 

post #207 of 354
I love Rhapsody. Power Metal fo lyfe.

Mike Manginni is not a down grade by any means. He has the chops and good taste to fill Portnoys shoes admirably. He played with Steve Vai and was the head of drum/percussion department at the Berkelee School of Music until he joined DT.

Moonsorrow albums are great. Fantastic atmosphere.

Talking about the production and mastering, some impressive recordings (for SQ referred to the normal metal/rock standards) are Thirteenth Step from A Perfect Circle, and Volcano from Satyricon.
