Tom Dowd - Producer
Derek and the Dominos - Layla

I know it is not a full album, but with Tom Dowd you can't pick a single example of an album, he did everything from Clapton to Coltrane.
If I miss one day of practice, I notice it.
If I miss two days, the critics notice it.
If I miss three days, the audience notices it.

I think one of my favorite albums for production/mixing is Blink 182's Untitled Album. They managed to record a very diverse album that's diverse, still pretty raw sounding yet still great.

Have some clips:

^ Love how Blink 182 gets Terry Crews to be in their video. He's hilarious and does the weirdest sh*t sometimes

Lockwolf - yeah, good call.

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?

I know it sounds crazy, but try to learn to inhale your voice. www.thebelcantotechnique.com

Porcupine Tree - Fear of a blank planet is a really amazing recording for me, especially the clarity of the dynamics and how nautral everything sounds.

Another album is Leprous' Bilateral, produced by Ishahn from Emperor, it sounds really really good and everything has such a unique tone, with good headphones I can hear every detail clearly and the bass just sounds ****ing fantastic, and the vocals are in the foreground without drowning out the other instruments, it sounds absolutely fantastic.

I'll agree with Filth about Gojira but I'd go with The Way of All Flesh above L'enfant sauvage, I just prefered the sound of that one much better. They always sound full and crushing though, even live!

Seventh Son of a Seventh Son for my favorite old school metal production... makes me realize how ridiculously loud everything is in metal these days, also.

And finally a bit of a guilty pleasure I guess, Day into Night from Quo Vadis, old school, not super over produced death/thrash metal, with the absolute BEST bass drum tone I have ever heard on any album, it's crushing and gets you right in the chest.

Nine inch nails - the fragile.

I always thought the mixing/mastering was fantastic, not a lot of people I know of really "got" the album musically but to me it comes in right behind "the wall"

I agree, and it's also the best NIN record ever imo. I think they spent 2 years in the studio with ''The Fragile'' and it really shows.

Kimbra - Vows.
No doubt. I honestly say it was the best produced album of 2011.

For black metal: "Location: Cold" by Catamenia.

Grimkvlt blavkk metvl recorded on a major-label budget. Every drum hit cuts through the mix, even with 200+ BPM gravity blasts, the bass is clearly audible even when it's just following the guitars, the guitars have all the drive they need, the vocals are right where they should be, and the keyboards just make the mix sound even bigger (except during the solos; then they have full focus).
The production was so stellar that they intentionally made their next album sound more kvlt. This is at the same studio with the same producer, two years later:
