Carter's Top 3 BEST Tracks on Big Whiskey

What I DO like about Cavallo- His emphasis on Carter's work.

I suppose its all subjective but as a drummer/musician I'd rate Carter's best work on a few things:

Dynamics - Fills/Hi-Hat/Ride Work
Groove of the verse/chorus
Time Sig Changes
Intro and Outro to song.

1. Dive In
2. Lying in the Hands of God
3. Spaceman

Also dig the intro to Alligator Pie, but the rest of the song doesn't compete.

Thoughts?

    Man....

    Its between
    Shake Me, Funny, Dive In, WIA, LITHOG, and Spaceman for me

    Spaceman
    Shake Me
    Dive In

    LITHOG
    Funny
    WIA

    Wow, that was actually really hard. I love Carter-bot.

    He's a beast on Dive In, Shake Me and Spaceman but he REALLY stands out on Why I Am. Sometimes I don't think the man is human.

    Yup. I tried to narrow it down and couldn't. He really shines on this one.

    I know it's not the best song on there, but Carter tears up Seven. Tough song. After that I would say FTWII.

    I second that. He just rips Seven up. His drumming is one of the things that has gotten me so hooked on the song. He's a beast.

    I'm amazed only one person has said Squirm, that is by far the best drumming track on the album. The only two I would say would be Shake Me and Beach Ball

    I third that^^. Even if the song doesn't do it for you, ya gotta tip your hat to what he pulls off on this one. Amazing! And very tastefully done.

    Re: Carter's Top 3 BEST Tracks on Big Whiskey

    1. Seven

    2. Squirm

    3. 6-way tie between SLAM, LITHOG, WIA, Dive In, Spaceman, and AP

    from 3:07 to 3:23 carter's fills in WIA can't be matched by any song on this album. the bass pedal is insane.
