    Not necessarily for the bass that's on them, but which albums do you play and say, "Ah, yes... the one's still perfect... I just LOVE this!!!"? For the songs... the production... the performance... whatever trips your trigger.

    For me:

    Prince - One Nite Alone... Live!
    Jane's Addiction - Nothing's Shocking
    Steve Morse - High Tension Wires

    I don’t listen to these often but they are some of my favorite albums and I do go back and listen to them from time to time. With all of these, each song is good through the entire album, the album flows well, and the production is pleasing and fitting.

    Dredg - El Cielo
    Fire Theft - Fire Theft
    Of Montreal - Hissing fauna....
    Chairlift - Something
    Mars Volta - deloused
    Sigur Ros - untitled
    Bright Eyes - I’m wide awake...
