I reckon an over-emphasis on one part of the frequency range could lead to a 'too much detail' verdict....because you'd be hearing too much of one part of the music.

But when well recorded music is played on a well balanced system - with nothing from top to bottom can there be too much detail?

I like to be able to follow any single instrument, listen as a whole to the music or, preferably, do both at the same time. That's when the enjoyment is at maximum.

A nice high triangle, mid bongos, tight bassline simultaneously......bring on the detail.

Depends really on what you’re listening to. If the music you listen too tends to be badly recorded then that can lead to quite a lot of fatigue. So yes to much detail can be a problem and could take away from the enjoyment of your chosen music.

People tend to associate detail with brightness/harshness.
