I have seen a few threads with reccomendations for the best recorded and mastered albums... but I haven't seen one for the worst. If there is one and I missed it on the search, please post the link. I think it would be fun to list what albums drive you nuts with the recording quality. I will get started with a lesser known band but this happens to be one of my favorite albums right now... Taproot - Blue Sky Research. Taproot's BSR album is full of digital static. When everthings get lot you can hear the pop and crackle of a digital recording gone bad. They even mixed a part from an old song on an older album on top of a song on this album, and it just doesn't sound right.
