Dire Straits, Calling Elvis (the bass shakes the room and the snare makes you blink)
Ben Harper, Whipping Boy (good seperation)
Chris Rea, Road to Hell part 2 (just cool)

Yeah !! I like "The Dawn" and "Bending New Corners". And the recording/tone/ambience/performance on "Bending New Corners" is so great I never tire spinning it again and again ! Not so much the others but there is some great stuff too...

When I'm "checking the tuning" on my monitors I use "Temple of the Dog", but that isn't for clients or perspective clients, its for me.

Peace.
...which is why I listed my own clients as who I listen to when showing off the monitors...

the only one that cringes is me
