Q (UK) - - Q Review Live -

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.”
