It was ever thus. :)
I was listening to BBC6 Music last night, a woman came on, it was sort of interesting, then.....
Bang! that was it, I thought, this is just Enya with more effects, more reverb, and more Crystal Echoes, just more of everything, that ruined it for me then on in.
This is what I'm finding, yes,there seems to be lots going on, but it's just the latest effects and production techniques, there's no real substance, or genuinely new musical ideas behind this stuff.
If it was up to me I'd ban the "Shimmer" effect, I've got about three units with that on them and I consciously never, ever use it.
