      Amen, brother.

      I particularly enjoyed the acoustic guitar solo on this one - very soulful.

    Try this one on your best sounding system and crank it up just a little above normal listening level and stay with it through the guitar solo -->https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2C9..._jVFjg&index=4

    It just grabs me, Every. Time.

    On good reproduction equipment

      These are some of the most moving vocals I've ever encountered. Pentatonics is good but in my opinion these guys are even better. Mark Lowry can really hold a note.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uaRpeMT1tjQ

        Please continue to soothe my troubled mind with your most exquisite sound tracks, guys - it is working . . .

        We may be a nation divided but we all really need to focus upon that which unites us rather than divides us like a bad cross-over . . . and crappy speakers . . .

        HAHAHAHAHAH!



        Best!

        Steve.

          I've been moved by music since I was a little peanut. I remember after I bought my first Realistic stereo and speakers with a pioneer turntable with my paper route money I realized I was using music to change my emotional state. But I wasn't moved to tears by music reproduction until I played the first tune on the Continuums I built for my girlfriend. I don't even remember what the tune or tunes were but as I sat on my bed when the music came out the tears just rolled down my face ... I wasn't even crying ... it just moved me to tears the same way vocalists have done to me in concert. Funny thing is the exact same thing happened to my girlfriend the first song she heard on them. I look forward to listening to all the links posted in this thread!

          Or this emotion --> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bb7rVb4UrWk

          Such great dichotomy for your speakers and crossovers . . . .

          :D

              I'm not a country music fan but this new release got my attention and the recording quality isn't that bad:

              BTW, I stayed up and watched the count come-in and I have to agree with the lyrics.

              Best wishes!

                Sarah McLachlan has a beautiful voice and good speakers will really bring that out; I use this when testing/auditioning.

                This famous song was used in a movie, but it was apparently written for Jonathan Melvoin of the Smashing Pumpkins, who had passed away from a drug overdose. It's beautifully recorded with sparse instrumentation:

I can tell if some new speakers i've built are what I consider excellent if they give me goosebumps or nice chills. I have no control over that physiological reaction so it is a good barometer.
                  This for me also. There are a handful of moments in certain tracks (an oddly diverse set) that can do this.
                  Keep an open mind, but don't let your brain fall out.

                    Although great music reproduction can evoke tears/emotion most times its based on someones emotional state of mind at that particular time. Emotions are based on strong memory in which the music can amplify those memories and in turn bring out your emotions to the surface. For example if you recently lost a loved one then a song like this can bring out that emotional content> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WAo2zdRbXic

                      Secret group of musicians did this one --> https://www.dropbox.com/s/yw53peky4u...2014.wav?raw=1

                      Mix is a bit Bass-heavy so cut back on the low-end as needed to get a good tight balance on your system.


                      Let me know what you think of it as well, please.

                        For me it's a bit of both. Good music that's played back on a decent system. Disney tracks usually get to me because they demand a strong vocal element. I've noticed that it's anything vocally powerful that gets me, especially when you can really feel the dynamics and it's not crushed. A couple rock songs have gotten me there as well.
