Don't you agree or is it just me?

Yeah, I kinda have the same feelings. The whole orchestral bombast is sometimes too big and taking over the choir chanting, which is incredible. And I have the same feelings about briliant low-piano rumble in the beginning of Neodammerung which after some 30 seconds faded away because of the monumental power of brass and chorus. At least it's represented in full glory (although not for long time) in Navras.
