Inspiration

Wondering if there are times when you feel it all seems formulaic and routine and, if so, where do you draw inspiration for a fresh direction or what mixes do you reference when you want a challenging target?

I try to listen to as much music as I can, and usually not from the genres that I work in (I listen to a lot of classical, jazz and reggae). That said, when I've been mixing all day the last thing I usually want to do is listen to more music, so I don't listen as much as I'd like.

At the moment there are three English tracks from the early 70s that I think sound absolutely amazing.
Patto - "The Man"
Roy Harper - "Stormcock" (the whole album)
Pink Floyd - "Fearless"

I definitely don't use these as targets since I'd never get anywhere close and that would be depressing, but more as inspiration as to what things can sound and feel like.
