As noted, not everybody hears things the same way, churches are different, WLs are different, player skills are different, etc., etc. I'm not going to say I like this or that, because what does that mean? Of course, I'd be happy to be able to play like LB, but even if I could, I know my opportunities to use that would be few and far between, because what works on a recording, or concert setting might not work in a church setting, and would probably go against the purpose of the music in some cases. It's one thing to sit and listen to a song being performed, where a well done instrumental break can offer a little rest from the words. BUT, if I'm (a congregant) actively participating in the worship music, singing along, and then the focus changes from my worshipful participation to the performance in the band, it can add some risk, at the least. (If LBs in the band, it's probably all good; but in a lot of the bands I've heard, including ours, it's not a slam dunk that it'll turn out well .) I'm glad I don't have to figure out the "calculus" problem the WL does, i.e., what does the pastor want to hear, what songs will engage the most number of congregants and, you hope, not cause any to complain to the pastor, or simply make them go away and not come back (especially the ones who help keep the lights on), and, at the same time, not be so watered down nobody gets excited while playing it.
