i don't really ever "compare" the detroit guys like that. what's the point? they've all got their own styles.
especially when the likes of derrick may hasn't been anywhere near a studio in such a long time
[edit: for what it's worth, hood and mills' stuff has been more influential to me than any of the other detroit guys ]
