"This album is a drummer's utopia from start to finish. It is perfection in many ways and a big example of Manu and Jerry's unique styles. On 'Red Rain' Lanois and Gabriel showcase Stewart Copeland's fine hi-hat work along with Jerry Marotta behind the rest of the kit. I love the subtle direction on this record in all it's technical brilliance. What Manu and Jerry deliver throughout the course of "So" is no doubt just one piece of the very complex production and instrumentation. I love the attention to detail and every song is a winner here.
"I chose this album also because, as you can tell, I'm a big fan of albums that showcase multiple drummers. It's really exciting if you are a drummer to hear some of the best drummers in the world all coming together to play on some of the best songs by some of the best artists in the world. To me it doesn't get any better than that and I have learned so much from listening and playing to all these albums. I took drum lessons for one year and then decided to just learn by playing to records. These selections are just some of the most exciting, enjoy!"
