Default Integrity of movement

I've read a good amount on the importance of various programs surrounding the core compound movements relating to mass gain. I have seen only limited reference within to the focus on time through the movements, but that may be more due to limited exposure on my part to various programs than the literature not being there.

Specifically, it's my understanding that more muscle stimulus is done on the eccentric phase of the movement, but there is little focus on this. Since I plan to begin a strength routine soon, this is of particular interest to me.

What are everyone's thoughts on ROM control and time through movement, through both the eccentric and concentric phases of the movement? It seems there is a tradeoff here, as the more controlled a movement the less weight will probably be able to be moved, as explosiveness will be sacrificed.
