Nominate a song that you would consider to be the best recorded rock song you have heard. I will start with an unlikely candidate that is really up there: Eskimo Joe's 'Falling for You' off their Inshalla album. Fantastic song that floats through my whole room and really puts on an magic show.
Mateored, Joshua Judges Ruth is the only Lyle Lovett disc I own, but I agree that the recording is very good. I own many Chris Isaak CDs, and all of the sound very good to excellent. Another example of very good sounding recordings would be Tracy Chapman.
