This review is from: Blueprint - The Best Of 808 State (Audio CD)
Looking back through my blurry eyes at the second summer of love always give me a sense of great pleasure and 808 State were a big part of generation x. Aptly titled,this cd compilation of some of 808 State's greatest moments really is the blueprint for all that followed. This is how you make dance music and not an auto-tune vocal to be heard on the entire album. Somebody should give this album to Kanye,will i am,Taio Cruz,Pitbull et al. Maybe they might find out it is possible to record good grooves without sounding like Cher or T-Pain. Outstanding electro grooves for the masses. Enjoy!
As you can probably tell by the above comments I'm not a fan of auto-tune and thought I'd add an interesting footnote to my review. Auto-tune was listed on Time Magazines 50 worst inventions between DDT and Red Dye #2. That says it all for a device that is slowly but surely killing pop music.
