I don't like Apple's Dolby Atmos

I don't like that Apple added Dolby Atmos to the music. This spacial enhancer does not sound natural and it was never intended to be part of the music from the artists.

I am fine with remastered music and even some albums being remixed like The Beatles Sgt Pepper or the Rolling Stones Goat head soup that Martin Giles did. As an audio engineer myself if they just added a Rupert Neve mastering compressor and used the Stereo Field Editor on it properly I would have been fine with the enhanced sound. But I don't like the Dolby Atmos effect added especially with classic rock, jazz, classical or jazz.

Are you listening on an Atmos multi-channel setup or 2 channel? I only have 2 channel and I don't find the Atmos mixes compelling either.
