I wasn't comparing, I just like his approach better - while he has many of the same techie tricks (ostinatos, double kick, twirling) he's also obviously spent a lot of time working on hands and brushes in fairly cute ways. That impressed me quite a lot, being as those kinds of approaches are less attack heavy and require a bit more thinking about sound and tone rather than just turbocharged speed.
