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

Too hard to say what is 'best', but here are a few standouts...

"Pink Floyd's" (actually not the whole band) The Final Cut is, for me, one of the best-mastered albums I've listened to. I suspect that any of Roger Water's albums would also be in the same quality echelon and I look forward to finding out.

Another one from my collection which I wouldn't expect many other people to know about is the Finding Nemo soundtrack (composer is Thomas Newman).

In the classical vein, I'm a Baroque fan. Yo-yo Ma has done a couple of albums with the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra (with period instruments) that are beautifully mastered. Talk about dynamic range!

I could go on, but those are my current favorites.
