What I find fun is when I'm tapping/nodding/whatever along and they outwit me, but then I get back in and anticipate the move next time. What I sometimes find a bit of a cop-out (though sometimes it's perfect) is when after however many repetitions of an odd-time riff, they add a shorter bar like 2/4 to bring up the total beats to a multiple of 4, so that it comes together with the surface 4/4 beat. I'd like them to stay asymmetrical a bit more often.
Exactly how I feel
