First to mind, Abbey Road. Ringo's drumming really went off the charts on this one.

Well this thread started in 2005, and has been re-visited periodicaly as more extraordinary drummers are shining on a specific album or because (that' my case) a newbie went down the archives to look for interesting reading.

I've read loads of posts, and there's definitely some masterpiece within this thread :-))

So here's my current best drumming album of all time:

Hiromi Trio Project album "Voice", Hiromi Uehara: Piano, Anthony Jackson: Bass, Simon Phillips: Drums.

Incredible music, Hiromi's jazzy material is utterly musical, modern, innovative and beautiful and the skills, feels and musicality of these three wonderful musicians are from another world such is the interaction and complicity between them throughout each and every songs in this album.

For me, it is by far my favourite recording of my long time "spiritual" drumming mentor, Simon Phillips. :-))

I'd just like, for what it's worth, to add my vote to this. A musical musicians masterclass for the soul!

How about Simple Pleasures by Bobby McFerrin? There's NO drums on it and you can feel the groove all over it ;)

I have not browsed the 8 pages here, two memorable ones for me:

Genesis Seconds Out, Chester Thompson make his mega kit sound so good, I think these are the original Bubinga Sonor's.

Magna Carta / Levin, Bozzio and Stevens. i never knew Billy Idol's guitar was this calibre of a player, Levin is great on everything he does, Terry Bozzio wrote the book on dynamic builds in this CD, one song starts with roto toms, but sounds like tabla, Stevens is playing a classical guitar piece, the song gently builds into this monster room filling barrage of music.

Moving Pictures was the first album that popped into my mind as well.

And to the question, yyz is the letters that are typed out in morse code for airplanes landing in Toronto.

I think the lack of drums is an excellent compositional choice. Knowing when not to use drums is an important as knowing when to use them.

I just look at things in a different way to most other people. I do enjoy being deliberately obtuse sometimes too, though!

"Moonloop" by Porcupine Tree, from 1994. Drumming by Chris Maitland, which is just amazing, its really the definition of groove if you ask me!

Many great drummers, bands and albums have been listed on this long ongoing thread. It has been educational for me as I checked out several I was not familiar with and even purchased a couple of albums on iTunes because of it.

It is a very hard choice but I would personally have to go with Deep Purple's Machine Head. In my formative years as a musician (though not yet a drummer), it made such an impression on me. Ian Paice's energy, agility and musicality caught my ear as a youngster back then and has stayed with me to this day.

There will be a million different answers dependent on philosophies, but I'll put in a tip to Moving Pictures.
