There are many times where I'm moved by a specific element of a recording. It could be especially well performed instrumental solos, vocals, or an especially well recorded part. You know, I'm talking about those moments that give you goosebumps, or bring tears to your eyes, or just plain rock your socks off.
I'll start us off with a few of my current (subject to change) favorites.
Drums - Phil Collins - Hand in Hand (from Face Value)
Acoustic guitar - Foo Fighters - Stranger Things Have Happened (from Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace)
Electric guitar - Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb (from The Wall)
Piano - Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Trilogy (from Trilogy)
Bass - Dave Matthews - Save Me (from Some Devil)
Vocals - Incubus - Oil & Water (from Light Grenades)
Synth/Instrumental - Genesis - Fading Lights (from We Can't dance)
Crank up & rock my socks off - Foo Fighters - In Your Honor (from In Your Honor)
Pipe organ crescendo - Peter Richard Conte - Nimrod by Edgar Elgar (from Magic)
What are yours, and what particularly do you like about them? As you can see, most of mine are from rock/pop recordings. I'd love to see some good orchestral/vocal favorites. I mean, these are the moments that give birth to our obsession with hifi audio gear right?
