Some engineers leave all the compression it up to the mastering guy.
Depends on the gig but I like comp on Bass and Vocals at least.
Now days I have been cutting back (compression) a bit to let things breath dynamically a bit more.
I would agree if you are recording to tape it pulls back the more you drive into it and that's most likely why Albini doesn't need the outboard as much.
It does sound more natural.
