Re: Morgan Agren
That Devin Towsend album he did, Casualties of Cool, turned out fantastic. Morgan really does sit back in the pocket and just carry the music. But if you listen you can hear him doing some really cool stuff. There's even (if my understanding is correct that it's all Morgan) some minimalistic polyrhythmic stuff going on in the track Pier. I think it's potentially my favourite release from Mr. Agren. I just love that he's so laid back, so solid, does his little creative things where appropriate. He's capable of cutting lose and bending minds, but here he just mostly playing basic stuff really adeptly. And to me, that showcases how truly adaptable and musical he is.
It's also worth mentioning that he's been the drummer for Swedish prog rock band Kaipa since 2000. Some really tasteful, fantastic drumming there.
