Best Drumming Of The Decade

As a drummer I always find myself focusing and the drums when I'm rlistening to music. So here is a selection of albums with really awesome renjoyable drumming. Any recs based off this list would be great!
10Queens of the stone age
songs for the deaf


Dave Grohl - Q.O.T.S.A.
Although the drums aren't overly technical on this album, the sheer power and
driving groove Dave Grohl creates really drive it along.
9Mastodon
Leviathan


Brann Dailor - Mastodon
A true beast behind the kit Branns complex style and interesting fills and
powerful double bass, help to drive forward one of the best metal albums of the
century
8Sydonia
Given To Destroyers


Another Australian gem, Sydonia combine the the atmosphere and beauty of
The Deftones and Radiohead with the aggression and complexity of Meshuggah.
Drummer Sean Bailey is a monster behind the kit, providing incredibly
dexterous double bass work that makes it almost sound at times as though the
band has 2 drummers playing at once!
7Cog
The New Normal


Lucius Borich - Cog
Regarded by some as the best drummer in Australia Lucius Borich's skill behind
the kit is incredible to behold and I am severely jealous of those who got to
witness Cog live before they split up
6The Mars Volta
De-Loused In The Comatorium


Jon Theodore - The Mars Volta:
This guys speed and dexterity behind the kit really helped make Mars Voltas'
debut one of the most refreshing, energetic and amazing albums of the decade
5Dream Theater
Train Of Thought


Mike Portnoy - Dream Theater:
While many people, myself included pan DT as they often put technical
virtuosity before songwriting. I do like listening to this album occasionally
however purely to listen to Mike Portnoys phenomenal drum work and the
heavy riffs prevalent throughout this album. He always keeps it interesting and
never overdoes the double bass
4Meshuggah
ObZen


Tomas Haake - Meshuggah:
Intense power, highly technical, pounding grooves, Thomas Haakes drumming
ability is mind blowing
3Cynic
Traced in Air


Sean Reinert - Cynic
Formally the drummer during 'Death's album 'Human' widely regarded as a
landmark release in the field of technical/prog metal, he is most famous for his
work with Cynic. Combining the the tricky time signatures and polyrhythms of
prog and jazz fusion with the power and aggression of death metal he creates
some of the most awesome drum work I've ever heard
2Porcupine Tree
In Absentia


Gavin Harrison - Porcupine Tree:
Recently voted one of the best current drummers in the world, Gavin Harrison
consistently produces amazing drum work for whatever track he's on. Formerly
a drummer for King Crimson he joined Porcupine Tree for their breakthrough
album In Absentia in 2002, complimenting the bands transition towards a
harder hitting sound. Just watch him perform Sound of Muzak on Youtube or
listen to Anesthetize from FOABP and you'll see why he is held in such high
esteem
1Tool
Lateralus


Danny Carey - Tool:
You either love or hate them but the majority of people will agree that Danny
Carey is a brilliant drummer. From the mind boggling Disposition to the insane
speed and complexity of Ticks and Leeches or the aggression and power of his
solo at the end of The Grudge, he is probably the most interesting drummer i've
ever heard
