Decided to dust off a few of my Ben Harper CD's tonight.
I'll throw in my vote for Ben Harper as well. Great to listen and relax too.
YELLO - Baby, was the album played when I first heard the B&W 801's @ Pirimai HiFi many many years ago and I still listen to it as my reference/showoff cd on my system. I just love the drums in track 3 :jungle bill, and the sound stage in track 7 : drive/driven, awsome! Track 9 : blender, will give your bass drivers a serious workout. Not everyone's taste, some tracks are quite weird, but the sound is excellent and crisp, with some sound effect hooks flying out left and right of the sound stage. Very exciting and lively stuff.
My listening depends on my mood at the time. So far this week;
For chilling out : Tommy Emmanuel, Dido, Jewel, Enigma, and general chillout music, Cafe del Mar, ect (chillout session 7, my fav).
For an ear bashing : Linkin Park, G 'n' R, Genesis, Evanescence, Foo's, Placebo, Pumkins and Muse.
For some fast paced kitchen action : Most Ministry of Sound stuff, Skitzmix, Maxmix and other dance/trance stuff my apprentices got me hooked into.
Definitely no bluegrass here! Though I do have some cultured stuff somewhere
