Great-sounding new music is becoming increasingly rare, so when I find noteworthy efforts I'm happy to share the news. Granted, personal taste plays a big role in defining music and sound quality, but I'm sure there's a few gems that'll click with you. What follows is a roundup of the best-sounding new and remastered albums. If I've missed some great ones, feel free to share your finds in the comments section.
This time, I'm covering a wide range of music genres on CD, SACD, Blu-ray and LP.
