Default Best VFM CD Albums?

Its good to hear about the individual choices and songs that can show off our ICE. It would be also good to know, any particular CD/Album that we can buy that are VFM ( meaning alteast 6 out of 10 songs are amazing songs) so we can invest in buying CD's that will bring out outstanding quality from our ICE installs.

I am adding some album names that are worth the money spent on them and some more :-

1. The Wall- Pink Floyd
2. Dark Side of the Moon- Pink Floyd
3. Crossroads-Bon Jovi
4. 2 Albumns from G'N'R ( Cant place the name right now)
5. Best of Dire Straits ( I think?)- Dire Straits
6. Best of Men at Work- Men At Work
7. Best of Mettalica- Mettalica

I could have named some of the albums incorrectly but, Hope you got my point. Lets have your view points in rock, hip-hop, pop, classical, metal etc.

My choices:

1) Billy Idol: Flesh for Fantasy
2) Billy Idol: White wedding
3) GNR : November Rain (amazing!! esp. the last 20 - 30 secs. guitar solo by slash)
4) U2: almost everything
5) US3: Cantaloupe (amazing sounds)
6) Simple Minds (one album only...forget the name)
7) Sade: for the mellow times
8) Karunesh
9) James: Born of frustration
10) Joe Cocker: amazing vocals

Almost all of the above are good sounds to have on long drives.

Western music is good for showing off your ICE. But, very few of the "so called" western artists were trained about the basics of music. Most of them have started their career by performing in night/strip clubs !!!

And, if the Western music is soooo soothing for our body, then everyone who have played hard rock/metal during music therapy sessions.

Soothing, when did I say all western music is soothing. Ever heard Eric Clapton? What is he? A strip club artist?
And all our singers were trained singers is it?
I can go on and on with the names. Im just saying that western music ain't crap as you say. Neither is our desi tracks. Both are different and let people decide what they wanna hear.

If you thought western music is good for showing of your ice. Indian music can be used as well.

You are just confusing western music with hard rock/metal. There are 'n' number of other genres there as well. Heard NORAH JONES !

I agree 100%. Most critiques of western music are ignorant of the various genres of music. Music is an international language, and one need not indulge in mindless criticism. Wonky ideas that all singers in the west started as night club performers is as loony as a rustic pal of mine returning from a brief stint in the US saying that only gals listen to Bon Jovi there, and any male attending their concert is a gay!!
Most people are unaware that many pop songs in our country are straight lifts from western numbers in the 60s and 70s. This trend started long ago with 'Come September' , but Bappi Lahiri gave it a fillip.
I can go on and on, but no point.

Well, one CD that has seen a lot of airplay since I upgraded my ICE is "Sailing to Philadelphia" by Mark Knopfler.

It's a well crafted album with significant effort paid to both lyrics and music. Knopfler's trademark playing with Dire Straits is evident in tracks like 'What It Is' while others incorporate more of a country/folk/blues feel.

Knopfler's signature Stratocaster tone and vocals are suitable for showcasing a good front stage and bass goes pretty low too on several tracks..."Speedway to Nazareth" could be considered a good sub workout and is one of the best tracks on the album.

Other Notable tracks (all are good really IMHO):
1. What It Is
2. Sailing to Philadelphia
3. Silvertown Blues
4. Prairie Wedding

Absolutely. This is the first song (the "Live in Concert" version with the guitar intro) that i play whenever I want to audition any system.
Just love the guitar and then the bass drum...I increase the bass/ LF equalizer setting to high, and then it's a real "Agni pariksha" for the system.
And one more for good bass: "Aaja mahiya" from hindi movie Fiza. When I listened it the first time on my Polk Mulitimedia 2.1 speakers, I was just bowled over by the deep bass.

Bang on! And if you want soothing music then all you have to do is just search. Try out the american flutes or the european orchestras or a whole lot of other things (if you want the details I PM me).

Make no mistake I love the Indian classical form of music. But I have always experimented with the type of music I listen to and the more you explore the more you find out and the more you love.
