    Throw in some albums with rich and unique drum sound.

    Some to kick off:

    Reggatta de Blanc - The Police
    Slint - Spiderland
    Kind of Blue - Miles Davis
    Sailing The Seas Of Cheese/Pork Soda - Primus
    Surfer Rosa - Pixies
    Led Zeppelin II - Led Zeppelin
    Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From a Memory - Dream Theater
    Spectrum - Billy Cobham
    The Bedlam in Goliath - The Mars Volta
    Nevermind - Nirvana
    Rage Against The Machine - Rage Against The Machine
    Aja - Steely Dan

    Remember... This is not about great drumming, it's about the production and mastering of albums that make drums shine.
