    I've been listening to D&D a lot and I'm tempted to vote for D1 though Lopez' swansong with Ghost Reveries does come pretty close.

    I'm gonna go with Ghost Reveries. It showcases Lopez's best and tightest grooves, IMO.

    I think GR is better but I notice the drumming more on D1 (and not just on the title track I mean..)

    Deliverance is the best album drumwise, but Baying of the Hounds is the best drum-song.

    GR for sure. But Damnation ranks up there with me too.

    Lopez on Ghost Reveries grooves like hell.

    Tightness, Dynamics, Diversity ...10 out of 10 each.
