Default Question from a piper

Let's put it on the table: I'm a piper who doesn't know one end of a drumstick from the other.

I love listening to great drumming. There are times when I'm listening to The Worlds and I'm not paying any attention to the piping because I'm so focused on the drumming.

What I find interesting is that the drumming I like the best doesn't appear to be a style that drummers like nowadays.

For example this is one of my all-time favourites, the Cameronian Rant, especially this drum score

And probably my favourite reel, John Morrison of Assynt House with my favourite drum score

If drummers could explain why this isn't the sort of drum score I ought to be liking I would appreciate it. I can't hear what drummers hear, and I would enjoy some edification.
