5 above is Sultans of Swing.
4. I am sure the reference is to Use Your Illusions I and II

Also other great VFM buys:

The Best of Simon and Garfunkel.
Brothers In Arms - Dire Straits (if you cannot get 5 above this quite adequately fills in)
Jimi Hendrix - Are you Experienced
Led Zep IV
Nirvana - Nevermind and MTV Unplugged in New York
Bob Dylan - MTV Unplugged
The Best of Deep Purple
Black Sabbath Vol 4 (arguably Sabbath at their peak)

Man! This list is endless. The sooner I stop the better it is else I will get a reprimand PM from one of the Mods for an obnoxiously long message.

Another heavy, yet complex & melodic progressive rock album is "Images & Words" by Dream Theater

Favourite album tracks-
1. Pull Me Under
2. Another Day
3. Metropolis Part 1
4. Under a Glass Moon

Dream Theater is one band that consists of extremely talented and well-trained members. Their lead guitarist (John Petrucci), drummer (Mike Portnoy) and bassist (John Myung) are alumni of the prestigious Berklee School of Music and their lead vocal (James Labrie) is also classically trained. Keyboardist Jordan Rudess is technically no slouch either.

Trivia: John was trained in playing the violin till age 14 and was encouraged to take up bass as it had the same number of strings as the violin . He now plays a 6-string Yamaha electric bass to rather good effect.

Those into progressive rock may also appreciate Petrucci/Portnoy's breakaway project -"Liquid Tension Experiment": all-instrumental, VERY fast and complex, worthy of good Hi-Fi/ICE.

A couple of weeks back, i picked up the music cds of the Global Gathering 2007 concert. Some of the songs there are really good to test and show off your ICE even though they are DJ mixes... some of these are:

1. Fly away (Cosmic Gate remix)
2. Love is Gone (Amo & Navas Remix)
3. Roadkill (Dubfire)
4. White Lies (Jessica Sutta / remixed by Paul Van Dyk)

Also, some songs from Aarmin van Buuren's album "A State of Trance".

They provide a good variety of highs, midrange and bass as well.

Did someone try "Let Me Think About It - Ida Corr Vs. Fedde Le Grand"? It is featured in 'Ministry Of Sound - Annual 2008' - One of the great tracks I've come across.

There is a whole lot of good music out there that you really shouldn't be missing out on.

But I do get a bit of what you mean (in the context of this thread). Showing off in most cases seems to be = waking up the dead There are too many SPL guys here (ran out of smileys).
Hey Hydra please post few more SQ songs like this.Even it is a list of songs also i dont mind .Please post from which album,singer plus song.Thanks in advance.

Default one in the head, one in the heart

It is my personal opinion that anyone who plays their car stereos, woofers etc loud in such a way as to be heard inside houses on streets should be yanked out of their vehicles and be be shot. One in the head, one in the heart. Then they should be fined and slapped around a little. Om shanti om.

Oh, did I tell you? My anger management therapy has been a little bumpy.

Also, look out for some Motown greats. These guys had some serious analogue equipment back in the day, not to mention great musicians and talented artists. Somehow these recordings beat the ever loving crap out of so called modern digital recordings. Check out The Temptations's Papa Was a Rolling Stone, and Rufus & Chakha Khan's Aint Nobody and others... you will know what I mean...

And please buy original CDs, dont download crappy mp3s... PLEASE
If download songs having 128 bit or more then convert into wave is that good enough or we wont get the SQ.

MP3 anyday is a lossy format. When you rip an audio CD into MP3s, you automatically lose a lot of important bits. Converting the MP3 back to wave is going to increase the file size but will be only as good as your MP3.

Even though 128kbps and above are considered CD quality, they are far inferior to the original discs.

If you, however, rip the audio CD directly to Wave, it is going to be lossless.

Right now, the songs that sound best in my ICE are those of Keb' Mo', Diana Krall, Madeline Peyroux, Alison Krauss (her older ones), good ol' Knopfler and the Eagles. Been hunting around for Might Sam Maclean without much results.

Cannibal Corpse - Blow Torch Slaughter

The bass line is so intense that it would aurally and psychologically injure the person closest to the sub-woofer.
