Not necessarily. Here's a Skrillex piece with 740,000 plays on Soundcloud, and the middle section is a "big thick line". Sometimes, the weaving of the different instruments that are heavily compressed and maximized leaves you with a big thick line but with lots of dynamics, especially if the bass is smooth instead of choppy. In the OP song, the intro is a big thick line, but the wobble part is quite dynamic.
