im a guitar player and i used to be pbsessef with tone and sound. Some of my fav albums for guitar sound are:
Masters of Reality
Dark Side of the Moon
anything by ZZ Top
anything by AcDc
everything sounds great on this album.
stellar production imo
If you were looking for a mental or hard rock album sorry about that
The Megaphonic Thrift's guitar tones on Decay Decoy make me wet. Anybody else listen to them?
Honestly any built to spill album. Doug Martsch is just so meticulous with his guitar tone on every song.
I've never heard a more monstrous and crushing tone outside of like extreme metal genres, yet it's still just so beautiful.
I fucking hate guitar elitism. It's like expected for fucking everyone to play a REAL Gibson LP into a TS9 into a Marshall JCM800. I've never heard an interesting guitar tone come from that. Just mundane, Super Bowl-tier shit/dad rock is what follows.
And don't get me started on my hatred of "harmonic" distortion
