No Mo Vo Co...Der

Blame Kanyeezy, but as I was listening to the latest release from Bon Iver, Blood Bank, I reached the closing track and decided the moment for the Auto-Tune is officially over. That's my opinion, I welcome yours.

Somehow, I didn't mind the Auto-tune as much on Wolves (Act I & II) but it was used much more sparingly...

Other great moments in Auto-Tuning:

Kanye West's - Heartless was supposed to go here. But his label/imprint/music is part of the evil Universal Music Group umbrella (Insert Boo) so no embedding aloud. I could put a link...but I won't. Sorry Yeezy, you don't need the exposure anyway...not that the Church of Cher does either. Same to you T-Pain.

Check it out, even the New Yorker is weighing in on this issue (Insert Eye-Roll).
