    I've noticed nobody has ever included Foo Fighters' "Wasting Light" in any of the well-recorded albums list. I thought it sounded very good, along with having many good songs. Anyone else have this opinion?
    On a side note, their Greatest Hits CD is meh.

    Beck - Morning Phase

    Jeff Beck - Live +

    A surprise. A revalation. Not your typical Jeff Beck.

    But just count all the early Jeff Beck albums in the well recorded category. Just got there and back again in 24/96 from HDTracks and was reminded how good they were.

    Glad to see The Cranberries up there with No Need to Argue. Can't believe the sound on that album.

    If we're counting Kate Bush as rock, don't see why The Sensual World isn't up there. Prime work on an excellent album, the first album where her control in the studio was put to the limits and it showed.

    I loved the cranberries in high school but stopped listening to them due to later albums not being to my liking. I'll have to get this album back out and give it a listen. Thanks for the help in rediscovery.

    No problem, just took the cd out of my collection and have listened to it twice every day. Great stuff. Agreed about their later sound, going to look into the album they released a few years ago.

    It's well-recorded, but it has crappy mastering, unfortunately. Too dynamically compressed. ​

    An old thread that deserved to be revived. Thank you for the list headfiers!

    If there is one that I can suggest now quickly is Placebo - Battle for the Sun. To me a strong showcase of controlled dynamics by Dave Bottrill’s (Tool, Dream Theater among others.

    Steely Dan - Two Against Nature
    Audiophile Reviewers use this. Magnificently produced album! In my mind, same category than Division Bell. Or even better.


    Pink Floyd - The Division Bell
    Standard CD version from 1994.
    -Even more popular. Can be found everywhere.

    This is one of my favourites;
    Robbie Robertson - Music for Native Americans

    You have to listen track Skinwalker. It's in Spotify. After that, think about how good it sounds in CD? You maybe think you've became somewhat deaf, because how loud this album can be played. Great dynamic range!
    Album have few great songs, also for those who are not Native Americans. :)

    OM - Advaitic Songs engineered by Steve Albini.

    Give it a shot!
