Leaving aside the auto -tune, would you say , Geff, that Darlene Love & Ronnie Spector were the producers puppets? They sure made a lot of great records anyway.
So did the Motown "factory". I 'm not comparing today's top 40 to those guys, but there are many different ways to make great records.
Not only do I like stuff I don't like, I even don't like stuff I like.
You have a certain point on the Motown, but at least there a requirement was rthat one be a strong singer. Today, it really doesn't matter. Autotune is used in almost all top 40 (I suspect Aguilera & Adele would be 2 exceptions).
