    If it's cd by a bassist, I would have to say "If This Bass Could Talk" by Stanley Clarke.

    But if it's a cd with great bass I would say anything by RUSH.
     
  3. Oh this could take a while, to list all of my favourites. So I'll just list a few.

    Paul Simon - Graceland
    Rush - anything
    Black Sabbath - Paranoid
    Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin II

    That's enough for now, I'm sure you'll get a lot more responses.

  7. I realise that I will probably get people bagging me for saying this, BUT, I think that Papa Roach's "Infest" and Limp Bizkit's "Chocolate Star...." have great bass playing. Tobin from Papa Roach is incredibly solid, has some fat tones and is a decent player.
    Sam from Limp Bizkit is one of the most inventive players in the "charts" and this shows through in the songs because the band allows him to do what he wants.

    If you feel the need to hassle me about "crappy nu-metal" bassists, don't. The truth is, I DON'T GIVE A SH*T!! I try to be as open in my musical tastes as possible. Just because I happen to like Limp Bizkit, doesn't mean that I am some pre-pubescent child who listens to music because it is trendy. Just because I like Sam Rivers doesn't mean that I don't love the playing of others, like Claypool, CLarke, Burton, Lessard, Flea, Sting etc....

    By-Tor: Why not combine categories and put down Geddy Lee's My Favorite Headache? I'm listening to it right now, as a matter of fact. =)
