I do. Is Fresh Cream even the best Cream drumming album?

Actually it's hard to say, but Rollin' And Tumblin' is just sheer high-adrenaline badassery (most notably at the end).
And then, of course, you have Toad. Enough said.
Ginger also gets some very nice work in on N.S.U.

"A Trick of the Tail" should be on here. Phil Collins was absolutely on FIRE during that album.

Is Moving Pictures really the greatest Peart drumming album?

Honestly I think 2112 and Hemispheres are probably just as deserving.

They're all up there. I don't think Moving Pictures is out of place as his #1.

Quadrophenia used to be #2 on this list. Now it's #49. That's fucking retarded.

lol, gotta love Clash's run by Who sniping.

I think #49 is a much better spot. I don't think it's even the greatest Who drumming album let alone #2 of all drumming albums.


You like men.

I actually think for albums, that works fine. Split up Influence and Impact and I think we're good to go.

This is gonna be one of the harder lists to do, imo.
I mean how do you really gauge the influence and impact of a "drum album"?

I think it's easier than a song. When someone tells you to listen to an artist in the old days to hear great examples of keyboards, drums, guitar, saxophone, whatever, they'd give them a definitive album to listen to. When an album came out that changed or influenced the landscape of drumming, then that would be it. How for example? Examples are Fresh Cream, In the Court of the Crimson King, Regatta de Blanc, Zeppelin I, even Lateralus. When these came out they were the talk of drumming, and people would say, 'have you heard that album by that new band The Police? Dude that drummer....listen to his style!". Or when Zeppelin I came out, people raving about Good Times Bad Times, Communication Breakdown, and the heavy sounds on Dazed and Confused. Even though you could say it was the singular song GTBT, albums with multiple good performances by Bohnam didn't have as much an impact as this as a whole album. In a way it's hard to prove, but at the same time it's easier to find comments and reviews of albums than singular songs, and thus in a way a bit easier to trace impact. Influence should probably be dropped.

Impact, Originality, and Technicality sound good to me. Impact being when it came out how big did the album hit the drum world? Was it the center of attention and were people raving about it? Did it end up leading to people trying to adapt the style after that single album? Originality is easy, how original was the style on the album? How original was the drumming as a whole? Technicality doesn't need a description.

1. Led Zeppelin
2. Moving Pictures
3. Fragile

^I think that should be concrete.
Those 3 are the peak perfection of rock drumming albums, imo.

Also, I'm thinking Tommy > Who's Next for Keith. Opinions?
