"Now here we have a big part of my musical education and a big part of why I drum the way I do. My sweet spot on tour was always sitting right behind these two kits on stage. Every night I would make sure I went there to witness some of the best call & response drum battles on the planet.I used to play to this album beginning to end everyday for years when I was in my early teens. This was my workout and a tough one at that.In my opinion this drum duo remains an unrivaled creative force in the drum world.There is an unparalleled chemistry between them and this concert in Paris captures that magic in spades.
"What I love about this album is the diversity of primal drum grooves, call and response drum arrangements, a multitude of some of the most original use of time signatures (Apocalypse in 9/8) and all the while this is all being performed live in concert. Most exciting part of the drumming on this album would still have to be the abundance of epic drum fills from both Collins and Thompson, at the same time in many cases. It's always ear candy hearing either one of these drummers go at it, but two of them together? It doesn't get any better than this my friends. All the amazing song craft would be enough but with the addition of these two drummers going at it in their prime it's definitely one of the most epic drum albums I can think of. Honestly this is in no way a biased opinion, one of them just happens to be my old man."
