List of 5 star albums - your opinions...

Recommended Posts

What do you all consider to be a five star album, where most every song is very good or excellent, AND the recording is audiophile quality as well? 

 

I'll start:

Band On The Run, Paul McCartney, released 1973  (This recording is good enough to demo your system.)

 

There are certainly others, but this album came to mind first.

Great replies so far!  I want to broaden the horizons of my LP collection, so thank you for your help (I tend to trust the ears on this forum).  BTW, I am listening to Chet Atkins in Hollywood on YouTube - fantastic!

I don't know what "the recording is Audiophile quality" means, nor am I qualified to answer that, but Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon gets my vote.

Excellent performances.  State-of-the-art Blu-ray audio and video quality.

 

-----------------------

 

I also have Blu-ray audio/video box sets of symphonies by Brahms, Bruckner, Schumann, and Mahler.

 
Plus numerous other classical concerts on Blu-ray.

 
Plus numerous modern opera and ballet audio/video recordings on Blu-ray.  

 

And a few in Ultra HD Blu-ray.   (Plus many excellent quality audio-only surround-sound recordings on SACD, and Pure Audio Blu-ray.)


After experiencing modern audio/video concert recordings that feature high-def video, and hi-res audio featuring surround-sound (played via my vintage tube amps, Klipsch RF-7II speakers, plus 2 powered subwoofers), I greatly prefer this to listening to CDs.
