That's interesting quadcaster as I really liked Peter's drumming. He was more of a rock oriented drummer than Matt which I think would have lent something else to the newer albums.
I never thought of Peter as a rock-oriented drummer. I thought he came from a jazz background: didn't he play with Kate Cerberano before hooking up with Crowded House? In any case, he could do that jazzy hip-hop swing/shuffle pretty well (Help is Coming, for example). But I'm not sure he would have thrived with the new material -- I can't imagine him bringing to Isolation what Matt did.
To my ears, Matt is *much* more of a rock drummer -- he can pound the skins a lot harder than either Peter or Paul did. But he's also incredibly versatile, thankfully.
