I had no idea. I think I've figured out why I can't listen to Zeppelin; their music is well arranged, but their sound keeps me from listening to it. I hate the hollow - garage band - sound.
Regarding the OP, I agree with your premise. But for professional recording, I would not offer this same advice.
