Not sure if these fit in here...I don't get all caught up in the mastering stuff and frankly don't really understand it. I just listen to what sounds good to my ears and these two albums sound VERY good to me...

I'm not all to knowledgeable on what makes a great mastered album, but James Murphy's albums always sound better than the rest.  Sound of Silver in particular seems to have some incredible production and mastering.

FugaziRepeater + 3 Songs

 

This CD was remastered at Silver Sonya in 2004 and includes 3 songs from the  7 Inch.

Tool's two last albums Lateralus and 10.000 Days are quite amazing. 

 

We could add Porcupine Tree's 2007 Fear of a Blank Planet which, if I'm not mistaking, was among the five best 5.1 albums of that year. Actually, Steven Wilson has quite a nice touch when it comes to 5.1 mixing.

Agree with all that titles to have great sound

 

But I find the 5.1 mix from In Absentia the best. The No-man mixes are also fantastic, especially 'Together We're Alone' <--breathtaking album

Indeed, Steven Wilson is doing a pretty nice job.

 

I've got to admit In Absentia's supremacy. Amazing album by the way. 

 

Crippled Black Phoenix offers majestic mastering too. Definitely worth paying for. 

 

I almost forgot: David Gilmour 2006 Live in Gdansk. First-rate live performance!

Pretty much everything on the ultimae record label pre-2009.

Have been considering selling my ESP950s due to not using them, not hearing much of a difference between my DR150s, the lack of portability etc. Just started listening to some of the albums recommended at that has all changed. Just actually listening to the music has thrown all my doubts out the window. This is brilliant

Can you recommend 5 of these albums? I've been trying to get a nice collection of sweet sounding classical music but there is so much to choose from with widely varying quality.

Northern Exposure Vol 1, though possibly wasn't this decade. Best trance album ever released to boot.

 

Also, The Hours by Philip Glass.

 

I would also love to add the American Beauty score but I just can't.

I really like how Fair to Midland's new album sounds (Arrows & Anchors). I'm not a very critical listener so perhaps you guys would disagree. I may also be biased because their music is phenomenal. Sound quality aside, the content is stunning. It's been a while since a band that I like has been this consistent in putting out great CDs without losing any of their charm or sounding like recycled versions of their old selves.

I'm pretty upset with the audio quality of Seether's new album. I have really grown to like many of the songs but there's something about the sound that doesn't sit well with me. I'm not sure if I'm the only one. Perhaps my Atrios just don't flatter the source.

 

 

Edit: I should include The Innocence Mission - Now The Day Is Over. This album sounds very good, in my opinion. It's got a dreamy tonal quality with a nice level of clarity. I listened to it for a while before bed last night and it was just what I needed to get in a sleepy mood.
