Is PRat a real factor?

I often see reviews that mention that an amp has good Pace, Rythm or Timing, but is that really a factor? Somebody explain the term for me, please. If the music is being reproduced truthfully and accurate surely you don't want any rythm or timing added to it? Does PRat have something to do with how "musical" sounding an amp is?
