its going bit far,im finding tracks on Soundcloud f.e , where the audio is just one continuous block of sound and the resulting mix is just "flat."
i prefer bit more dynamics in my music.
though, the biggest difference i see between now and f.e the 80´s where songs had much more dynamics, is the bass, music today usually has lots more bass.
bass needs more volume to be heard properly than the higher frequencies,but if you up the bass, it drowns out the higher freq unless you amp those too, lol
might be a result of the current fascination with the bass (started in the early nineties if i remember correctly)
