I haven't actually looked at a Dynamic Range figure for several months now, and I think I'm starting to realise that I just don't care any more. When I'm mixing I mix for the song and the sound - always: I don't give a damn about level, Just balance! If a mix has a low DR then live with it - that's how it's meant to sound.
