    What are your favorite and best sounding recordings?

    Well, so many of us have put together a pretty mean music machine for our ride, and not all cd recordings are created equal.

    Here are some of my all-time favorite great cd's and recordings:

    Steely Dan - Aja
    Red Hot Chili Peps - By The Way and Stadium Arcadium
    A Fine Frenzy - One Cell in the Sea
    Seal - Greatest Hits 1991 - 2004 (in 5.1 Sound)
    George Michael - pretty much anything
    The Eagles - Long Walk out of Eden

    So, howabout sharing you favorite and best recordings?

    Happy CARPC' ing

    Abacab - Genesis (both the song and the album)
    Reservoir Dogs soundtrack
    Linger Fickin' Good - Revolting Cocks
    Express - Love and Rockets
    Sounds of Science - Beastie Boys
    Closer To The Edit, Peter Gunn Theme, Dragnet Theme - Art of Noise
    Crystal Method - Vegas
    Faith No More - Epic
    Ministry - Psalm 69
    Dink - Green Mind
    Prince - Purple Rain
    U2 - Under A Blood Red Sky
    Yes - Classic Yes

    That's a nice playlist that will keep you cruising for at least a couple fullt-tank fill-ups.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Ahhhh, I sooo miss L.A. and environs.

    It really is something how there is such a difference in sound between recordings whan one finally gets a somewhat decent carpc sound system, huh?

    An older Culture Club cd of 'Miss me Blind" or "Time (Clock of the Heart)" sounds better than so many current recordings.

    Yep, Mark Knopfler (sp?) insisting on best qual digital really still shows. "Your Latest Trick" or "Why Worry?" are still islands of pure sound in an ocean of bombastic noize...

    If you like Seal, you should really check out that greatest hits 2 or 3 cd set (depending if you get the 5.1 sound one). Even if you don't like his music, it has quite a nice sound. The acoustic versions are refreshing.

    happy carpc'ing!

    I'm a Tool - 10,000 days fan as well as A Perfect Circle - eMotive.

    There's a lot of depth in these albums and being more heavy, it's an amazing thing to hear in a properly tuned car. Many cars can only reproduce soft music accurately, but throw in something a bit heavier and you're crying because your ears hurt.

    Now, if I'm going to demo to a true audiophile, I pull out Dire Straits for sure. I have an entire CD case of nothing but demo CDs...not full albums, but demo CDs...like many in this sport.
