Do you mean in reference to the Dirty Loops stuff? And by that do you mean that you think the original material was unsalvageable to the point that even these spectacular musicians could not revive them, or that Dirty Loops are bad arrangers?

Well c'mon, at least explain your opinion, I don't think anyone's going to murder you over musical preference.

Well you can't just give a controversial opinion and not explain or defend it. That's no fun.

Give me interesting musical discussion, dammit

Fuck, I hate being the center of attention like this…
Well to me, it just sounds like a jumble of notes and chords; not to even mention the autotune. I would honestly prefer the originals.

Well, in some ways, you're right, it is a jumble of notes and chords, that's sort of jazz fusion's thing. However, the chords make a lot of musical sense! It's a lot of substitutions (by tritone, third), and extended harmonies, and other than that just jazz harmony in general. The style isn't for everyone though. I'm a bit curious about where you hear autotune, as I can't find an example of that. He does a lot of overdubbing his own voice, and sometimes that can create the illusion of autotuning. Are you sure it isn't that?
