I have noticed a lot of fans of K-pop complain about auto-tune. Honestly, if you don't like auto-tune then don't listen to mainstream K-Pop or any pop for that matter. Auto-tune is part of the current trend of pop, just like how at one point in Rock everyone and their mothers added some sort of tapping solo.
I understand auto-tune is overused a lot, but I mean at this point why do people still complain? It's like complaining about hook songs in K-pop (but that's a subject for another time).
It's completely understandable if lets say a new group, who just debuted with a song injected with as much auto-tune as Bom injects botox, gets a lot of shit for an auto-tune song. With that you can't really tell if they can sing or not. I get that, but what's the point of complaining about groups who you already know can sing when they release songs with auto-tune. They are just trying to stick with the trend of pop.
If you really don't want to listen to auto-tuned songs then listen to ballads or some shit, but I mean don't go complaining about every song being auto-tuned when you are listening to pop. There are other genres out there.
Also I think it's funny when people complain about songs being fully auto-tuned when only the chorus or certain parts are auto-tuned...but that's just me.
Anyways, if you haven't gotten used to auto-tune by now then just stop listening to pop and wait till they replace voices with animal sounds.
P.S. I have never complained about auto-tune in a song (that I remember of) unless it has to do with how improperly it was used or if a new group did it.
Don't forget I am not the only author on this blog. Some people tend to forget that.
