I'm glad someone agrees with me about Abe Laboriel, Jnr.! I think he's Macca's best and hardest hitting drummer yet. I'm actually glad the sound isn't "100% perfect." I like the more raw sound. That is definitely thanks to Macca's entire new band. They play more like a rough-edged jam band. I like it. Like someone else stated, the 89-93 band was great, but a little "too" polished. For example, Robbie McIntosh is an awesome guitarist, but he hit every note "perfectly." Almost "too" perfectly. Sounded almost rigid. I like Rusty's more rough sound.
