Bump Alan Parsons for sure. His working on Dark Side of the Moon helped make it, IMHO, one of rock's perfect albums and overall best engineered. That album still sounds groundbreaking and killer.
Bump Bruce Swedien too. Another unbelievable talent that rarely gets his due.
I can listen to any Roger Nichols' engineered music. That guy is flat out a genius in putting his sound perfection into reality. His inventing the Wendel drum machine alone would put him a the very top of my list.
