Overrated for sure, but not at the same levels as Grimes.

Retrograde was fantastic at Music Hall this past December. Excited to hear the studio version.

This guy is the epitome of so much of today's boring, lame music. And he's used autotune! It really doesn't get any lamer than that!

autotune is a pretty cool effect though... if used as an effect by a singer who can sing. Like "I Am Made of You" by Alice Cooper

Same. But it's still good nonetheless. -The new album, that is.
