What do you think is The Rolling Stones' best sounding studio album? Now that the SHM-SACD series is apparently complete, this seemed like a good time to pose such a question. You may base your opinion on the medium and mastering you prefer on a case-by-case basis, as long as you only judge the sound and not the performance. I chose the UK catalog for the early albums as the basis of this poll, although it shouldn't matter much. I'd be surprised if any of the albums before Aftermath gets even a single vote. I voted for Black and Blue, although I must admit the choice wasn't easy. Undercover also sounds really good! What made the difference for me is that Black and Blue simply has the most natural drum sound I have ever heard on any recording, ever. These cymbal crashes sound so dynamic and perfect!
