Looking for recommendations for beautiful, unique, high-quality iPad apps (and/or references to sites that share lists of such apps).

I recently picked up an iPad 2 on deep discount following the iPad 3's announcement. Throughout the years that I'd avoided owning an iPad, it seems as if there were countless examples of gorgeous iPad-optimized apps throughout the web. Naturally, I ignored them as I didn't own an iPad, but now I'd like to find some of those again.
This isn't just a general "wut apps do u liek!?" question. I know about most of the regulars recommendations - Dropbox, Flipboard, Instapaper, etc. I'm looking for great examples of intelligent, polished, beautiful apps.
Perhaps it's the most gorgeous calendar replacement. Or some music app that may not offer much in the way of new features, but is a sheer pleasure to use.
Great typography and rich user interface design are important factors. Intelligent, logical design would be as well. Extra points for creative, unusual approaches to app design. It could be either minimalist or packed full of features. Basically, what apps are the best of their breed, and heighten the iPad experience?
Specific app recommendations are great, as are links to any websites or blogs that regularly share or review top-tier apps like this.
