That's not even arguable. Tyler's drumming was something else.
Drummers are usually underrated or overlooked, but I think a good drummer can do so much for a bands sound. Reach for the sun is the perfect example of that. Bryan and Tyler created such an atmosphere for that album and without it, AJs awesome lyrics would not have made nearly the impact they do.
I love catholic girls, but as a whole it was obvious Golden record was lacking that magic on drums/guitar. Not sure if Bryan recorded before leaving, but it sure doesn't sound like it.
