possible HA forum sticky?

hey y'all. i feel that there should be a thread in the forum with all ur songs that will make your ears bleed from either quality or just sheer amazing playing. any genre goes. here's my list partially from another thread:

John Coltrane - track three off Love Supreme Disc 1 (drum line in the beginning is INSANE)

Ellis Marsalis - entire Heart of Gold CD

George Albright - Georgia on my Mind (live at birdman(imo, my favorite jazz song))

Chick Corea, Pat Metheny, Tim Burton - Country Roads (like minds cd)

Franz Lizst - Hungarian Rhapsody II

Miles Davis - Jam

Fourplay - Can't it Wait 'til Morning (elixir cd)

Michael Jackson - Stranger in Moscow (a good system, and this song will make you cry)

Joshua Redman - Sweet Sorrow (BEAUTIFUL)

Thelonious Monk - The Columbia Years (entire set OWNS joo)

Beethoven - Sonata #8 Pathetique (i can play this track(i've played piano for 12 yrs) but nothing compares to a classical pianist on an 8ft grand piano OMG)

Nas - Thugz Mansion (not the 2pac version, that BLOWS)

and of course...

Illogic - First Trimester

Illogic - I Wish He Would Make Me

Blockhead - Music by Cavelight (entire CD OWNS)

DJ Tiesto - entire Just Be and In My Memory cds


i'm up for trying anything new, so whatcha got?

this is not about bass my friend, it is about making your ears bleed beautiful sound. there's already a bass song and movie thread.

Pretty nice. It's got a track for phase, a couple of tracks with voices/drums for imaging, plus the actual sound tracks for staging & imaging & tonality, plus some sine sweeps that'll rattle your teeth (for those days you feel like seeing what you can do :naughty: )


Autosound2k has some nice test discs much like these also. Don't know if they come with the nifty little map layouts though.


However, I just realized yesterday that I have some bunching at each end of my soundstage (in my car) :(

FWIW, they ship quickly :p: Got mine in only a couple days.

But be careful.....once you listen to the Pink Panther theme song, it's almost impossible to get back out of your head :( :(

I feel your pain brother squeak. That has to be the single hardest thing to correct in car audio is the "soundstage". Sure its not too hard to raise it up or push it back but if you have bunching, its not as easy as turning a knob or moving a tweeter. I still don't have a clue what I'm going to do. My bunching is on the left (drivers) side of the stage. I thought time alignment would fix this (though it did help alot) but not totally. :mad:

any steely dan sounds amazing, dire straits is awesome too, although many of their recordings are very quiet (especially money for nothing album)

if you want to hear your speakers scream put in "Crossfire" by Stevie Ray, or go for "couldn't stand the weather" the snare in that song will blow you away.

Sound deadened some more :p: I seriously need to start working on it......haven't found the time yet :( However, I still have ~3 weeks vacation to use up :)

I know, I hate it :mad: The middle 3 drum beats sound excellent and are spaced nicely. But the two at each end come from the exact same place. No separation at all between them :crying:

I just remembered I own Tracy Chapman's first CD. That thing is great because she goes a capella a lot and the guitar/drums have great separation.
