    What record or records do you love the overall sound of? To my ear, I think Voodoo by D'Angelo and Brothers by The Black Keys sound amazing!

    Fav sound overall or just guitar? The word album doesn't quite resonate with me. Growing up in the 90's and 00's there were just hit singles on a CD and cool videos with hot girls dancing around lowriders lol.

    Hmm, I'm thinking of albums that really all go together without any odds and ends. Dark Side of The Moon, Radiohead - Amnesiac, Tool - Ænima. The Verve's A Storm In Heaven if you're into shoegaze.

    For hard rock, High n Dry (Def Leppard) or Back in Black (AC/DC)...



    For hair metal...Hungry (XYZ) or Exposed (Vince Neil)

    Live recordings that include the sound of a symphony orchestra tuning and the accompanying background, like the hushed voices of a packed house, the applause as the conductor takes the podium and taps the baton...

    Similarly, pretty much any ensemble readying to begin a performance; except that rock, and performances of similar genre mostly do all of that out of the presence of the audience, during sound check some hours before the doors open. And rarely ever included on a live album. (Though some live jazz recordngs follow the classical approach. I used to think that it was because jazz types liked to mimic classical mannerisms. Now I think it's because it saves money.)

    It's the series of sounds that stir my fondest memories, as both an orchestra and ensemble member, and as a member of an audience. The anticipation and excitement.

    A lot of albums I like have quite a sparse, uncluttered sound. Fire And Water by Free and Fleetwood Mac’s debut are good examples of that.

    I don't think I understand the question. "Sound" is such a broad term.

    But there are two fx that tend to really draw me in: fuzz/crunch and reverb. Not always, but when they do, I'm gone, in a trance, moved.

    So my fuzz album is Psychocandy by Jesus and Mary Chain (Siamese Dream gets honorable mention here):


    And my reverb albums are Lost Souls by Doves, specifically the tune "Cedar Room":

    and Agaetis byrjun by Sigur Ros:
