First of all, I never use compression or limiting in my mastering. But this is just my choice, I like dynamic range to be preserved as it is on the actual mix. But analog compression is a good thing, used in mixing, it's indispensable. Here is why:

Compression is a tool. In the hands of a good operator, it is crucial. Too much dynamic range on recordings (the softest sound to the loudest sound) is bad. Not enough, worse. There is a art/science/technique to making a good recording. The compressor; overused, bad, used correctly, perfection!

When music is mixed, human hands work the faders but the compressor is there to help.

Here are some details in Animated sales video company from Advids.
