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

Pink Floyd's The Wall is a mastering staple for any collection. In my opinion it's production is much better than Dark Side Of The Moon. Some other examples of my favorites(all albums listed are original/not remastered releases except otherwise noted):

Ayreon - Universal Migrator(both parts)
Black Sabbath - Mob Rules
Conception - Flow(an example of a loud yet dynamic album)
Dire Staits - Dire Straits
Dire Straits - Love Over Gold
Iced Earth - Something Wicked This Way Comes
Infected Musroom - Converting Vegetarians
Iron Maiden - all albums from 1981 to 1992
Jethro Tull - Aqualung
Jethro Tull - Thick As A Brick
Joe Satriani - Flying In A Blue Dream
Joe Satriani - Joe Satriani
Judas Priest - Sad Wings Of Destiny
Judas Priest - Killing Machine
Judas Priest - Stained Class
Judas Priest - British Steel
Judas Priest - Screaming For Vengeance
Kamelot - The Black Halo(another great loud yet dynamic album)
Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti
Megadeth - Rust In Peace
Megadeth - Countdown to Extinction
Motorhead - Ace Of Spades
Rush - 2112
Rush - Moving Pictures
