Then they should say they miss the 'personality', not claim Josh plays the songs too fast or too hard.
I saw Taylor backing Alanis Morissette at a club in Boston just as Jagged Little Pill was breaking. It must have been a warm up gig before the big tour and maybe one of his first shows with her. Taylor was raw and aggressive...maybe getting close to frantic at the start of the show. After a couple of songs he settled in nicely while still keeping an aggressive edge. Alanis was as intense as Taylor, I left the show wondering how she didn't spontaneously combust on stage. Incredible show.Does anyone think that any negative point of view may be slightly misguided by the SOUND Josh gets versus Taylor's?. Sometimes as I look back on my own views it somehow just dawned on me that I've been a bit negative but why?..it hit me that Josh is fine..for me I miss Taylor's more aggressive recorded TONE. One can misconstrue that as a playing negative without seeing things from every angle. Know what I mean?.
