Well, somebody back there said "ANYTHING by Stevie Ray Vaughan", and I agree.

Eric Clapton-Unplugged sounds brilliant on my SR225i. Absolutely incredible. Any grado owners, give it a listen.

Anything from Clapton Unplugged. One of the best produced and mastered albums in recent memory. The sound is so good I even enjoy the bluesier material, and I'm not a blues guy.

Yeah...I love people who, instead of answering the question, alter the premise of the question.

EDIT: Ooops...sorry, komi. Missed your "my bad" post. Sorry for sounding sarcastic...

You're referring to the live Hell Freezes Over version, right? Cause the studio versions--and I've got about three or four rips from different albums--are nothing to write home about.

oh... and the Roger Waters CD's are amazing too... 'Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking' is a real Grado album.

for Stevie Ray Vaughan: at the moment I listen to 'Live in Tokyo' the most, especially the 'Tin Pan Alley' (and following) part.
'Deep Purple - Made in Japan' is another great one: raw, fast, energetic.

Well, really anything by Nick Drake.

Frank Marino and Mahogany Rush, there 4th album especially , also the Talking Heads live album "Stop Making Sense" , Robbie Robertson's self tittled album , of course anything by Stieve Ray Vaughan (the MFSL issue of " The Sky Is Crying " sounds sooo live and real) and any Rush cd also will showcase what Grado's are capable of . Really there is no other headphone out there quite like a Grado . I think everyone should have a pair in there collection .

I'm starting to think the best song is the the rock song the listener likes the best

I second the Black Sabbath recomendation and would like to add Wintersun - Wintersun, particularly the song Winter Madness. It feels like your sitting right in front of the guitar amp during the solo (so you'd better turn it down).
