gentle compression

I've read so many articles recently on how engineers use gentle compression at every stage of recording/mixing to help (amongst other things) get a commercial level at the final mix stage. Do you think this is a good idea?

Cheers and many thanks for your comments,

It all depends on the program material. Some things sound great with compression, others sound so so. Use your ears. A good idea is to do a bunch of different compression levels, listen on a cheap consumer system, and see which sounds best.
