There........I said it! bring on the flames! Seriously though, I appreciate it played a huge influential part in the early days of drum and bass, and fully understand why. But in this day and age where we are now, the drum and bass genre has evolved ten fold, with various genres popping up everywhere. Now, whenever I hear the amen in a track (unless it's proccessed beyond recognition), I think it just sounds sloppy. It always sounds really muffled and muddy, which was fine back in the 90's, but with pressure on a producer to get the upmost clarity from their sounds I cant really see it fitting in much anymore. So.....whats your thought's on this subject?
