Thumbs up lilly

I remember moby saying something similar about the vocal on Why does My Heart Feel So Bad, it's an old sample but the same principle. He cleaned it up and the mood died. So he left it dirty.

Real character and emotion are not pristine, they mess a bit. It's whether a mixer can be brave enough to ask does this flaw detract or does it add to the whole?

I remember Orbit saying Madonna's mantra was 'Don't gild the lilly'.
