    I thought it would be fun to see what albums people would most like to see in hirez.

    Here is my eclectic list:

    1. Pink Floyd The Wall (5.1). An album built for surround sound.

    2. Beck - either Odelay or Midnite Vultures would be perfect.

    3. Anything by Van Morrison.

    What's your top 3?

    I don't like to make lists of favorites, but I think these would be interesting:

    Ornette Coleman- Free Jazz
    It's basically like two jazz groups playing at the same time. Would be a real kick in surround.

    Radiohead- Ok Computer
    A lot of interesting sounds on this album should make for an interesting listen in high-res surround.

    A really really good version of Don Giovanni!

    Apart from personally enjoying these artists immensely, I've chosen the following as releases that I believe feasibly appeal to a broad enough demographic to at least be considered for a possible release in hi-rez multi-channel:

    U2 - The Joshua Tree, or Achtung Baby!
    Bruce Springsteen - Born to Run, or The Rising
    Radiohead - The Bends

    (Frankly, I'd be happy to even have The Boss' catalog remastered in redbook).
    Regards,

    NIN-Downward Spiral
    Radiohead-Ok Computer or Kid A
    Something recent from Depeche Mode, either Exciter or Ultra would probably be amazing.

    The wall is so close, but given that there is the dvd in 5.1, I have to go with something that isnt in hi rez or surround.

    Zappa Civilization Phaze III
    Beatles Revolver
    King Crimson The Power to Believe

    All contenders for multi-channel, obviously... lotsa others - however unlikely - would also be great: Bela Fleck, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Jimi Hendrix, early Santana, Medeski Martin & Wood, Los Lobos, Steve Vai.

    You know... the weird stuff!
