Oh well...
I'd toss up "Dry" by PJ Harvey as a darn good "alternative" record which benefits from an "audiophile" playback chain

Wow, first of all I'd forgotten this thread.
Secondly, thanks for reminding me that I've meaning to move/restart my Alternative Audiophile blog over on Wordpress.

Lastly, it's funny you should mention "Dry". On YouTube I occasionally upload my own 'private remasters', "Rid of Me" by PJ Harvey has been ridiculously popular over there and I very recently reworked "Dry". Two albums I love the sound of, but quite different sounding.

"Happy and Bleeding" has been on regular rotation since I reworked it.

Default Fables of the Reconstruction - REM.

Currently playing - probably the album which moved them from 'alternative' to 'mainstream'. Fables of the Reconstruction - REM. Now, being able to remember when they were "alternative" marks me as old (college radio cassette bootlegs - ah!).

But it is still a well made record/CD which benefits from a decent system, even it is still unmistakely a "rock" recording - artificial panning, bit of post processing etc.

Do Polly Harvey, Cowboy Junkies, Fiona Apple, Dead Can Dance, This Mortal Coil, Stina Nordenstam, Shivaree, Zhao Cong, Zhong TingTing or this mob: Loituma qualify?

There was a quite compelling Manga clip of that ^ on Bleach. There are many versions with a cartoon character swinging a leek, hence it being known as the "Leekswing song". The Bleach not only had the leek but also prodigious bouncing boobs.
Those versions only use the "scat" section (tall girl singing - just random Finnish words that are different on each version.
