Default Musical Stress Balls?

What album or albums seriously relieve stress for you, or are most effective for calming you?

Petra's Unseen Power does the trick for me.

Something I can get lost in and help take my mind off of things really helps, any genre really. One of the best examples (especially that piano solo):

At a time like this, scorching irony, not convincing argument, is needed.

If I need to work out some anger I'd go with Suicidal Tendencies first album but if I need to calm the **** down I usually go with this.

Brian Eno - Neroli

At the moment, Fleetwood Mac. In the past, it's been Simon and Garfunkel. They're like comfort food for the ears. If I'm pissed, classic punk like the Sex Pistols.
