Good point and fair enough.

I tend to like pretty much any drumming I hear. It's just that my favourites are the older things.

To me it's not as interesting when the snare drums play exactly the same notes as the pipes. It's more interesting to me when the snare drums create their own musical statements, contrasting with the pipes rather than matching them, and shape the music into something different than it would be without the drums.
