What's your "gold standard" recording?

Follow me on:

Everybody's got one -- from classic Stax and Motown to modern pop and hip hop. What's your favorite recording, and why?

Studying recordings is one of the fastest ways to become a good listener, especially in the sense that recording engineers need to be excellent listeners -- able to dissect the ins and outs of great record-making.

So, what's your favorite?

Sorry I didn’t comment earlier but I usually read your articles a week after their written. My favorite song is Coming Undone by Korn. The reasons that I like it are that it is a song that is on the edge, the guitar work is very good, and the vocals are great.
