Since some of us have started to discuss this off topic in another thread I thought I would split it off and start again.

After listening to some really badly recorded CD's lately and actually starting to fall out of love with my Axioms I really started to dig into my CD collection to find really good sounding rock albums. My feeling is that if we can get a good list going it will encourage me further to dig into my collection, and maybe introduce me to some new artists as well.
Here are a few to get us started:

Green Day - American Idiot
Foo Fighters - One by One
Rush - Moving Pictures
Soundgarden - SuperUnknown


Edited to include all those M80 ownwers too.

hhuummmm.. rock albums on the axioms..

as mentioned, pearl jams, 'versus'
queens of the stone age- 'songs for the deaf'(dave groehl on drums)
system of a down- 'toxicity'(produced by rick rubin, all of his sound awesome)
metallica- 'black album'(classic standard)
and if you liked 'moving pictures', grab a copy of 'power windows' and sit back a spell. some dont like this album from rush cause it departs from the heavy guitar riffs, and moves into a more keyboard/synthysized sound, but it is a true masterpiece recording. listen for the geddy lee bass lines, simply incredible.

Better Than Ezra - "How Does Your Garden Grow" and "Closer" Both CD are extremely well recorded and are probably my two favorite rock discs I love to play on my M-60's.

Prince's "One Night Alone" concert CD - specifically Disc 3 - The Afterparty. The recording is so good that you feel like you're at the back of a 200 person club watching Prince play guitar up on stage. Probably my favorite Prince recording of all time.

Though it's not straight up guitar rock, Propellerheads "Decksanddrumsandrockandroll" is an incredible test for your system. Spiff will back me up on this one.

Enjoy-
Kev

I would add Trapt to the list as well, surprisingly well-recorded. I wouldn't consider Pepper rock, but their albums sound nice and clean through Axioms as well.
