    Bloody hell, it's hard to suggest only 3 but I really have a soft spot for the Dave Brubeck number.

    That's why I thought a poll would be a good idea.

    I've voted but I think I should point out that 'Tom Jones' and 'Torture track' amount to the same thing.

    You don't really want something with super lush production for a test though. That's the easiest stuff to do well, that and anything with a very simple mix.

    You want something where they've used all 48 tracks and run it through a shitload of processing. If it can unravel that, it's a good-un.
