"I'm old enough to remember hating "electronic" sounding music. "
I watched the documentary on 808 I was reminded what it was like to hear R&B music that was heavily synthesized and remember how foreign & weird it sounded.
I mean 808s and drum machines were cool for hip-hop but I remember thinking of Marvin Gaye's Sexual Healing or singing the National Anthem and remember thinking at the time even as like a 9 year old, that's cool but it would be better if they used real drums.
I also had that reaction to Prince's Sign of the Times. Just remember thinking it was a negative that it sounded so synthesized and electronic.
