What album had the best sound quality? I'm talking, shit that was recorded with the hope that people would listen to it on high quality monitors/headphones.
Idk about best but this is great for 1984
Beck's albums produced by Nigel Godrich (Mutations and Sea Change). Godrich is great with putting in really subtle and effective things that for the most part only other engineers would notice.
Literally any ECM album.
A recent example
Dunno if you're into ambient/techno but the production on Voices From The Lake is mesmerizing.
Also Objekt's Flatland.
I won't despise the idea of EMI Records either.
About Bellucci? Well, she needs a good VHS tape with me.
What happens? When I am not at home, she can watch the video and play Base Ball with Kanye. :)

>all these years later, this is really the only one of the band's discs that stands up as housing something more than bland disco and recycled bowie experiments (my life in the bush of ghosts is actually by far the best eno/byrne collaboration), but even this is a disc that you have to listen to from a certain ironic distance. the increased dissonance and rhythmic complexity embedded in the repetition sort of rescues it from the dance floor, but it still doesn't really manage to transcend it. it's more that you want to really like it because you can hear that they're trying, and that emotional response is blinding you to a more objective analysis. it's still ultimately emotionless, crappy disco - but it's reaching towards getting out of that funk and making an artistic statement....
Haven't heard this but if you think they didn't know how to record in 1984 you're deluded.
Haven't heard all of these others. Here's some of my picks
Prince - Purple Rain
Bill Evans - Explorations
Marvin Gaye - What's Going On (pic related is the best recording I've ever heard by some distance. Vocals are very difficult to get right)
Miles Davis - Kind of Blue
Miles Davis - Nefertiti
Miles Davis... (yeah just pick one they're all great)
Wayne Shorter - Speak No Evil
Run the Jewels - ST (EL-P's a phenomenal producer and that includes sound quality and mastering)
Karriem Riggins - Alone Together
The Last Electro Acoustic.. - Miles Away
Charles Mingus - Mingus Ah Um
there's plenty of good answers homie
The production on this was excellent and definitely intended for a good system.
Pic related was also no doubt intended for listening on a high quality system.
this album is actually used by speaker companies to test systems because it is so well recorded

I thought the production on Skeletal Lamping and False Priest were more creative, but this one is, if at all possible, slightly higher in terms of studio quality.
