So, like-- for real for real-- when y'all heard Faded for the first time, you didn't think those belted vocals sounded a little... wrong? Or out of place? If I'm being completely honest, I've grown a little more used to them (as I have with a lot of the vocals on MIAM), but I know at first I thought they just sounded unnatural and it annoyed me.
I CAN'T with the Sean Spicer comparison, that's a low blow-- is there no one else who knows what I'm saying? I just listened to it again and I still hear it. IMO it's one of the victims of Mariah taking too long to "perfect" each song on MIAM-- some of the vocals ended up feeling too something, either overlapped or overwrought or manipulated in some way.
