Lives for gear
i was also underwhelmed. some songs sounded incredible (i.e the weeknd - cant feel my face) others kinda sounded like they threw on a reverb plugin and some very phasey filters.

unfortunately most of the labels usually just send mixdown stems to surround and atmos mix studios who then create the atmos mix without input from the artists and producers. most of the time the original mixer & mastering engineer is not involved.

dont think its as revolutionary as they're claiming it to be. its more like an instagram filter you can choose to turn on and off. at the end of the way 99.9% of consumers are gonna listen back on 2 speakers. not any different than stereo.
