Default best-mixed albums?

about to start mixing my magnum opus and i'm looking for good reference CDs to listen to before i mix. i have some chosen already that are genre-specific, but i'm looking for great sounding albums to reference from across the board.

i know it's a toughy, but what are your favorite sounding albums mix-wise??

I am just an amature but I know lots of pros and have asked lots of questions. Many use Pink Floyd dark side of the moon. I use it as well, great for reference

I think John Mayer's Continuum sounds very nice.

I like the sound of guns and roses Use your illusions (I and II are different but both are "well mixed" in my opinion.
I like also Exit the dragon (by urge overkill).
There is a point where good recording and good mixing meet, and since im no expert I could not tell wich albums are specifically well mixed.

It would help a little if you were to list the genre that you will be mixing;-)

But this link should help you:
