This /\actors who over act
chefs who over season
writers who are too wordy
it means nothing
my wife hates spicy food ... I love it
some don't care for Keith Moon ... I love him

Its subjective. Recordings capture a moment in time and live gigs can be driven by excitement and an enthusiastic audience. Music is an art, not a science, so its about interpretation.
Less sometimes is more but, sometimes more is not nearly enough. Drums and drummers should have a personality, so much of the music we hear now on the radio is cookie cutter drumming and I think we are becoming brain washed into thinking one size fits all.
