    I found this link the other day and I thought it would be nice to post it here:

    And if you Linkers do not mind, I'd like to include this brazilian record here. To me, Acabou Chorare by Novos Baianos is amazing and the best record ever released here in Brazil. I own the original vynil of it as a gift my father gave to me. I do not enjoy much brazilian pop music, but man .... This album speaks damn loud! Really a soulful stuff and I think you people should check it out. Preta, Pretinha and Besta Tu were hits here and both tunes do visit many radio stations to this day, something that is not that regular in terms of MPB.

    Can you imagine an entire album with songs in the vein of Me Wise Magic, Humans Being and Can't Get This Stuff No More? That is what should have happened in March 1998 instead of VH III. Sigh …

    MWM and CGTSNM have the greatest studio drum production of Al's career. Simply amazing drum tones. But, overall, yes a terrific all around job by Glen Ballard and Erwin Musper with the whole band.

    Humans Being, produced by Fairbairn kicks all kinds of ass, too.

    So many to choose from. In some cases, it's a certain facet of an album that sounds exceptional. For instance, I wouldn't call Motley Crue's Shout At The Devil the pinnacle of polished rock music production but Tommy's drum sound on that album is amazing - it really does sound like your sitting right there at his kit in your living room. Also, hearing a certain album via a specific, coveted master or pressing can make a huge difference - the Robert Ludwig first vinyl pressing "hot mix" of Led Zeppelin II sounds incredible.

    A well produced rock album should sound great on anything - from a car stereo to a expensive home theater to headphones. Low volume or cranked. In fact, a great sounding rock album should sound *better* as you crank it up, not more fatiguing to listen to at top volume. There's a lot of albums especially from the last 20 years that sound good on one or two of these options but not everything. The late 60's through the mid-80's is pretty much the golden age for well produced rock albums.

    That said, for albums that simply sound great or have a really cool sound thanks in large part to production, I'd list the following random few off the top of my head:

    U2 - Achtung Baby
    AC-DC - Back In Black
    Queen - Night At The Opera
    Al Stewart - Year Of The Cat
    Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
    Judas Priest - Screaming For Vengeance
    The Who - Quadraphenia
    Pink Floyd - The Wall
    Guns n' Roses - Appetite For Destruction
    Rage Against The Machine - Self Titled Debut

    As an admitted Eddie freak, I'm actually going to say that I disliked his wah infused solo on MWM. Not the notes, but the coloring that the wah gave them. Funny that I love the haunting quality that his sustainer use gave to the outro feedback ones...

    Humans Being is kickass from start to finish. It's right up there, in terms of production, and being a top tier Van Halen song.

    Bee Gees Greatest Hits and all the old ABBA albums. Man, those sounded good on my parent's GIANT living room-filling record player.

    There is a warmth to certain 70's recordings that is simply nowhere to be found now.

I guess at the time I wasn't into such things and thought, "It sounds okay, I guess?" Now that I looked up that Donald Fagen "Nightfly" album -- WHOA! That's unbelievable! I'm going to have to dial up that one and Aja and give them a real listen.

    I think I remember hearing of Eve 6 before? I guess they came out back around Blink 182 and Maroon 5 and when C.C. DeVille had Samantha 7? One of those number bands? I'll have to listen to that closer, too.

    Thanks for all these great answers!
    Fagen's Nightfly is another flawless production.

    They never sound sterile, just sonically sexy.

    "The Wall" is another amazing Bob Ezrin Production.

    You can feel the angst, the moods....

    I was talking to my concert buddy, and i was amazed when he said:
    Pink Floyd's The Wall is incredible, but thank God for David Gilmour.
    Roger Waters doesn't do much except sing poorly...

    I was like: DUUUUUUUUDE....Waters was the mastermind behind all of those
    great concepts and tunes.

    He thought it was all Gilmour.

    I agree. But on the other hand, I didn't care much for Ezrin's production on Jane's Addictions "Strays" album, although much of that dislike has to do with post-production brickwalling.
