GOING IN DEEP
Adam Granduciel’s path to A Deeper Understanding.
Phil Collins ...But Seriously VIRGIN, 1989
Granduciel’s first album purchase. Here, the former Genesis drummer turns his attention from love songs to social issues – “Another Day In Paradise is my jam,” the War On Drugs man recalled.
Neil Young Mirror Ball REPRISE/EPIC, 1995
Pearl Jam’s presence on this mid-’ 90s LP led grunge beneficiary Granduciel to Young’s electric side and the realisation there was more to the guitar veteran than Harvest Moon and MTV Unplugged.
Bob Dylan Time Out Of Mind COLUMBIA, 1997
A Deeper Understanding’s misty atmosphere and languid vocals echo Dylan’s work with producer Daniel Lanois. Late-period Dylan, Granduciel has said, is “some of the juiciest of all of it.”
