    You know a super good stereo is very revealing and I'm not sure how this would hold up
    but I can say that with anything.

    Love the chorus structure of those last two.

    This one... Can not put my finger on structure but I really like it. Harmonic language [?] seems extended/opened.

    Probably my favorite..
    Structure beyond any standard and it was a hit. Nobody I know of could do this like David Bowie. He was a genius.



    And it has zero to do with Stevie Ray..

    I like Roxy Music's "Avalon".

    These two albums epitomize separation and clarity to my ears. I can hear everything clearly, but nothing is so dominant it throw things out of whack.

    I feel that way about this song (and I guess the whole album). The drums are very "present" but don't overpower the bass and guitar or vocals. It's all in perfect balance in my estimation.



    This is another of my favorite albums. To me, it just works:



    And Charlie's stuff always works for me too.

    CSN sounds as good today as ever. Clean and warm.

    Crime of the Century. Not just the song, the whole album.

    Many ECM Records releases, Kate Bush "Aerial" / "Hounds of Love", David Bowie's late output, "Songs in the Key of Life"...
