I think OK Computer is one of the best things to listen to with headphones. Absolutely stunning.
"Let down" with headphones is fucking orgasmic....especially the

"you know, you know where you are with"

ok, just wondering if it was a personal opinion thing or if your were seeing if anyone would catch that the Band hates the production of it

I personally enjoy the production on the album myself, but I find it hard to list it as the best produced ever when the band itself doesn't like it

Anyway, I just listened to a few Achtung Baby album tracks, something I haven't done in a long time...and you know what? The production on that album really is unbelievable. Eno/Lanois all the way bitches.

listen to Sit down stand up, the gloaming, Go to sleep, punchup, sail to the moon, and 2+2=5,
the band wanted to
capture the atmosphere these songs had
when they played them live.........

they failed miserably


it is still one of my favorite albums

Radiohead's production has always been fantastic, and so has Pink Floyd's

but no one seconds my Revolver one?

Come on.

Born To Run - Bruce Springsteen

when this album comes through my tiny headphones on my ipod it becomes larger than life, really. the album is solid.. music, sound, lyrics and all. it makes me want to start dancing like a crazy loon everytime the intro to 10th Avenue comes on. Sounds good on vinyl too!

Wow. I can't believe I forgot that one. Nice catch. Born to Run is a landmark recording, and deservedly so.

And LMP, I support the Revolver statement. But pretty much all The Beatles album from Rubber Soul on are production masterpieces (barring the original Let it Be, or course...and maybe The White Album to an extent.)

Revolver - The Beatles

All the rules fell by the wayside with Revolver, as the Beatles began exploring new sonic territory, lyrical subjects, and styles of composition. It wasn't just Lennon and McCartney, either -- Harrison staked out his own dark territory with the tightly wound, cynical rocker "Taxman"; the jaunty yet dissonant "I Want to Tell You"; and "Love You To," George's first and best foray into Indian music. Such explorations were bold, yet they were eclipsed by Lennon's trippy kaleidoscopes of sound. His most straightforward number was "Doctor Robert," an ode to his dealer, and things just got stranger from there, as he buried "And Your Bird Can Sing" in a maze of multi-tracked guitars, gave Ringo a charmingly hallucinogenic slice of childhood whimsy in "Yellow Submarine," and then capped it off with a triptych of bad trips: the spiraling "She Said She Said"; the crawling, druggy "I'm Only Sleeping"; and "Tomorrow Never Knows," a pure nightmare where John sang portions of the Tibetan Book of the Dead into a suspended microphone over Ringo's thundering, menacing drumbeats and layers of overdubbed, phased guitars and tape loops. McCartney's experiments were formal, as he tried on every pop style from chamber pop to soul, and when placed alongside Lennon and Harrison's outright experimentations, McCartney's songcraft becomes all the more impressive. The biggest miracle of Revolver may be that the Beatles covered so much new stylistic ground and executed it perfectly on one record, or it may be that all of it holds together perfectly. Either way, its daring sonic adventures and consistently stunning songcraft set the standard for what pop/rock could achieve. Even after Sgt. Pepper, Revolver stands as the ultimate modern pop album and it's still as emulated as it was upon its original release.
