LOL at audiosavant and Mark.

Yeah, Randy, not as much as I should, though. I need to explore that site more. Seems like it made me make too many decisions \:\)

Kate Bush - Hounds of Love

It's my first time listening to her (at least knowingly). I kind of like it so far.

I will go on the record as saying that side two of Hounds Of Love is one of the most amazing musical productions ever made in a recording studio by anyone.

Kate Bush is a god(dess) in my house! A truly great artist, musician, producer and a true audiophile.

Unfortunately, the CDs I've heard/have sound terrible compared to the vinyl versions. Not sure if they have been remastered recently though. Mine are from the early 90's.

The same goes for Todd Rundgren's catalog.

If you like Hounds Of Love, then you really need to check out Never For Ever and The Dreaming, both are great and timeless recordings.

Loc: It's all about the location.
I picked up "The Very Best of Enya" earlier in the day, and listening now. Brings back a lot of memories of vacationing in the Caribbean many years ago, some great music here. Most of the songs have been remastered in '09 apparently.

I think my M80s and Axiom speakers in general, were made for good, pure female singing voices...

Just to add to my previous post on Enya's CD "Very Best of...", listening to the hymn Oiche Chiuin(Silent Night) really made my family room feel like a church hall as the walls in my room just seemed to disappear, quite extraordinary.

Thanks for the recommendations. I'm still taking her in, so I'm not sure yet if I'll be hungry for more, but she does seem pretty unique.

This version was remastered in 1997. The sound quality didn't seem too great, but I haven't tried it on my main system yet.
