How wide is the stereo spectrum? I hear very narrow- if not mono chorus tracks on much of the examples listed. I could be wrong.Hmm. I'm not a fan of chorus at all but....
....I dunno, clean tones by Eric Johnson, the Edge, Andy Summers, Pat Metheney, Adrian Belew, David Lindley, Billy Duffy, pretty much every 80's new wave guitarist sporting a Roland JC 120, etc. The list is endless. I do not see how a stereo modulation effect could possibly suck anything out of a mix, it doesn't even fight focus if it's supporting a mono, unmodulated version of same guitar track recorded via a different amp. Lot's of players use the wet on the outside, dry in the middle approach. Using chorus on stereo verb or delays to give space to a mono guitar track is also very common and effective.
