Compact Discs that I Think Sound Good

Here is a list of compact discs that I think sound really good in a decent stereo system. This is based on their recording quality as presented in a digital format. If this were a list of vinyl records, it would contain different albums, although it would probably contain some of the same. This is not a list of my favorite albums, although a few of them are my favorite albums, probably because the recording quality may have had something to do with why I liked them. There is not one album from before the 80’s. These are albums I put into a cd player to enjoy the sound quality of the recording, but not necessarily to enjoy the music. These albums just lay a nice smooth bed of sound out for me to lie on. If my least favorite band put out a record produced like any of these, I would enjoy listening to it.
