On the other hand, for a guy with that many drums, Terry certainly isn't exploring all the tonal possibilities he has in front of him, but maybe that's because Chad is just wailing fusion licks all over it and it would be lost. Sometimes Terry is just too esoteric for his own good, I think.
Lastly, why do Terry's bass drums sound so unmusical and thumpy? I would've thought they would be nice, clean notes, no?
I don't know what you're talking about. If you can't hear the interplay and call and response going on there, I don't know what to tell you.
I thought that was stellar stuff and my opinion has triple-plated titanium armor, anti-anything missiles and a large loudspeaker that wails Mariah Carey high-notes at volume-level 11!
