Depends on your tastes. A lot of photographers do well with "high impact" lighting--creative use of accent lights. It's a hip look that's very modern and popular.

I'm doing my most salable portraits right now by reaching back in time. I'm using a single very large, square softbox to emulate an artist's window light, along with a large, close reflector to brighten the shadows.
