Post drummers or albums with the best drum sound!

I love the sound of Shannon Larkin of Godsmack!

All drummers have a great sound as long as it is unique for them :)
My favourites are
Peter Erskine for jazz
Chris Adler for metal(great kick sound, toms tuned a little bit too low though)
There are many others- Joey has a nice sound, Weckl has na wery fat sound on his regular set, Stanton Moore has veeery nice funky sound (snare is the best) etc etc.
Mapex, Istanbul Agop, Attack, Vater/O4D.
I want an endorsement :)

is it true that he used Pinstripe on his snare while recording the first album?

Just so you know, any album that has been recorded in the last 10 years is probably triggered. So what you hear is a mix between the actual drum and the trigger. Very few albums have natural drums anymore.

Gary James of Thunder on the Laughing on Judgement Day Album (their 2nd) . Which was recorded way back in 1990(ish) The tones and sound coming off the kit on "Low Life In High Places" is superb. I reccomend to all of you to search for that song as it sounds to me that there is nothing more than a bit of reverb on that kit when it was recorded.

Daniel Liljekvist - Katatonia - The Great Cold Distance
http://www.katatonia.com

Gavin Harrison - Porcupine Tree - Deadwing, In Absentia
http://www.porcupinetree.com

The production on these cd's is the best I've heard in a long time.

The dude from Lamb of God has a great sound except for his snare - sounds like a garbage can lid to me!
