The man can still play no question... he is an extremely skilled and able drummer.

what disappoints me is that he seems to invest less creativity/dynamic into his playing now.

Look at the dynamic of playing in UF (ignore the 80's sounding snare), or the subtlety of One. - For that matter compare the modern and old versions of One, and the older one has much more expression in it. The new version is bland.

Some other examples of his previous creativity:

Please
A Sort of Homecoming
Heartland
In Gods Country (all toms, no cymbals - couldn't imagine him doing that now!)

..To name a few

hahahahaha...listen, everything Larry does during a song is for a reason, it serves a specific purpose...he doesn't do that to impress people like you, he chooses not to hit a cymbal because it fits the song perfectly! He has always used this mentality, so what on earth makes you think he would never do that now? Whatever pattern he feels suits the song best is the pattern he will play...obviously In God's Country is one of the very few songs where he decides to do this..So to say you couldn't imagine him doing that now is kind of....illogical? idiotic? hmm...?

Hmm Rob, quick to pounce on people eh.. you like that in real life?

I meant that if they had written that song in the 2000's, then i doubt he would had approached it with the same creativity as he demonstrated back then.

ah, so you meant something a little more specific and coherent than what you originally said, and expected others to infer something that was unclear.....



and no, I'm not really "quick to pounce on people..." I was simply reading the thread at around the time you posted and replied...
