Top Blur Moments on Record: The Next Generation
The fourth and final installment in the series focuses on Blur's understated but always excellent drummer, Dave Rowntree. Dave is criminally underrated as a drummer, in my opinion, which is understandable a bit as he always plays for the song. While he has serious drumming chops, his playing is always very tasteful and fits the songs perfectly, for the most part. Live, where he can really let loose, it's an entirely story, but this is a post about his top moments (to my ears) on the studio recordings...
In no particular order:
1. Trouble in the Message Centre
5. Globe Alone
6. Coffee and TV
7. No Monsters in Me
8. Out of Time
9. Oily Water
10. Come Together
There are many more I could come up with, but these are the ones that spring to mind at this moment as ones I really enjoy. How about you?
