That song is one of the most pleasing (sonically speaking) songs I've ever heard. I love everything about it.

Probably seems random;

Refused: The Shape of Punk To Come (Pelle Henricsson & Eskil Lövström)
Paul Simon: You're the One
Tom Petty: Damn the Torpedoes (Shelly Yakus?)
Aretha Franklin: Aretha Now (Tom Dowd)
Flaming Lips: Soft Bulletin Dave Fridmann

I feel so dated to the late nineties when I started recording...

and the nominees are...

for my top albums(at this point in time) that lit a fire under my @$$:
(in no particular disorder)

1. Globe Sessions/Sheryll Crow: Tchad Blake and Andy Wallace. two birds with one stone

2. OK Computer by Radiohead:. I like all their stuff but i'm really into this one at the moment.

3.Karen Carpenter by Karen Carpenter: i find some stuff dated but heaps more stuff timeless. Phil Ramone rules

4.Shake Your Money Maker by the Black Crowes. Nostalgia for my testosterone years or not this album rocks my socks. Brendan O'Brian co-rules

5.Raising Sand by Robert Plant and Allison Krauss. I don't know about yous but it screams punk to me.

6.Superunkown by Soundgarden: Love the colors. dark ones, mostly.

7.The Eraser by Thom Yorke: computer/noise ecstasy. Nigel Godrich's awesome soundscapes make my heart palpitate

I would say that I was most influenced by stuff I heard when I was between 7 and 12 years old:

1. The Beach Boys - Good vibrations, I can hear music, etc. I was very impressed by the fullness and coherence of the sound - as well as the great arrangements.

2. Elvis - a song I don't remember and have been looking for for years, it has a clavinet bass riff at the beginning, I was floored by the sound when I heard it when I was about 7. Anyway, whatever you think about Elvis, there are some great arrangements and interesting sounds.

3. The Beatles - Revolver (the LP, there were no CDs back then, and I am not very fond of the mastering of the CDs). This album is so coherent, both musically and sound-wise.

4. The Band - The Band

5. Newer stuff includes Radiohead (too loud, but in a rather good way), Lizz Wright - Dreaming wide awake, The Roots, Buena Vista... well, it's time to stop.

1. "BLACK SEA" by XTC (Producer- Steve Lillywhite, Engineer- Hugh Padgham)
some of the most KILLING drum and guitar sounds ever in my opinion

2. "SO" by Peter Gabriel (Lanois, Gabriel)
Peter's use of the CMI becomes an art form, cast of characters like Manu Katche, Nile Rogers, etc.etc.

3. "Low" by David Bowie (Bowie, and Tony Visconti)
BY FAR the most UNDERRATED bowie record (and my fave) Eno SHINES- and the songs are quirky and weird- but oh so charming.

4."The Unforgettable Fire" by U2 (ENO/LANOIS, with Engineering by Kevin Killen)
Needs no qualification- it's greatness is self-evident

5. "Elliott Smith" by Elliott Smith (Elliot Smith, Tony Lash)
When I first got this record, I listened to it every day for a year straight. The vibe is INFECTIOUS and the production is so HONEST, and MINIMAL that songs just shine.

There are many more that have shaped my outlook, but these five top the list.
