He's one of my favorite producers but I don't agree with this in the slightest, especially today. Nothing more awesome than an awesome compressor or two or three or four etc in all sorts of styles and sounds. Music has evolved a lot since the Eye in The Sky. Back then, bass didn't even move your woofer like today. Different flavours for different folks. Plain and simple. There are no rules, if it sounds good, its good.
BUT, don't kill the transients and that's why he and many people are against comps and limiters. I agree but if you have a vision and flavour , know why you are using them, they are the greatest thing since apple pie.
