After seeing the opposite topic, I was thinking that it would be much
more helpful to list the best mastered/sounding albums.
That's quite a difficult question. Too many albums and
not enough time to hear them all. laugh.gif

Here's a small selection, in fact the first three that were
coming to my mind:
  • Luomo - The present Lover
    high end pop, sounds glass clear, but is not worth a second listen because of the music itself.

  • Jim O'Rourke - Insignificance
    All O'Rourke albums but this one is clearly insane.

  • Atom Heart - Liedgut
    Uwe Schmidt is the pope of white noise.
    Gentlemen: Test your audio equipment now...
etc. etc.

Now it's your turn: Give me more!!! Please. smile.gif

The latest Iron Maiden album (The Final Frontier). You can listen right through without fatigue (assuming you like the music genre). It's actually less compressed than Tom Jones' "Praise And Blame", which is semi-acoustic blues. Both mastered by Bob Ludwig, who also mastered the Guns'n'Roses "Chinese Democracy", another one you can listen to right through.

And yes, just about anything by Tool / A Perfect Circle. Their albums are the textbook example of how to "make it loud for the radio / iPod" without destroying the dynamics.
