For some reason I'd never listened to BDB until now -- the name always put me off and I assumed it was some fey indie nonsense, but that's a great track and definitely in the groove of what I'm going for.

I've always like vocals where it sounds like the singer is going for something and almost but not quite getting there -- same thing with solos. I always want it to sound like it's on the edge of the envelope for the musician. There's nothing as dull as a perfectly (technically) executed vocal or solo. It becomes elevator music.

That's why the current plague of Autotune is such a curse - not that it doesn't have plenty of uses, but you end up with a ton of passionless dreck.
