A specific song that may have been mentioned under a group - Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon - Time.

Also, since it's technically one song and this group wasn't mentioned - Jethro Tull - Thick as a Brick. Any other Jethro Tull fans out there?

Yep. Studio versions will never sound as good as the live version from Hell Freezes Over.

You can just say "all the non-sfx tracks from Lateralus" and still be correct.
Schism, Ticks & Leeches, the title track... all awesome.

Heartily agree with Rodrigo Y Gabriela, Eric Clapton's Unplugged and Dire Straits.

I would have to add on to the list with Antonio Forcione. Any song in his "Touch Wood" album. Whitesnake's Starkers in Tokyo is pretty good as well.

I just bought Hell Freezes over by your recommendations. Goooood choice

+1 for Dire Straits (Brothers in Arms)

Also, Steely Dan's Gaucho, the MSFL version.

Agree with Clapton: Unplugged ... but why has no one yet mentioned Alison Krauss?

Dashboard - Modest Mouse

Yeah, the song "Why Worry" from BIA is particularly engaging.

I have the SACD of Gaucho and it sounds good on ANYTHING!

Anything from Lyle Lovett's Joshua Judges Ruth cause I'm listening to it right now on my 325is' and am being floored by the fantastic presentation.

IMO,probably all well recorded rock/metal albums. (x2 on dire straits especially) i am not listening to jazz and stuff but good jazz/fusion recordings will also suit. (steely dan -"aja" is my pick)

but i wouldn't go for electronic with the grado that's for sure.IMO, they simply made for rock stuff. but that's me...others may disagree with that.
