    Thanks for the posting. Interesting to hear Stan talk about the 'greats' on his production team who have done tracks for Kylie Minogue etc. I have enjoyed the album 'inside out' there are a couple of superb songs on it (Unbroken, Kissing You, The One) and the released single Choose You is certainly catchy. However, and I'm ready to hear other opinions, I feel the auto-tune implicit in some of the tracks is unnecessary. Auto-tune was devised for the singers whose sounds are not strong - the catchy pop song artists that have been around for quite sometime now. Stan, your voice should standalone - you have a timbre and resonance in your voice which auto-tune HIDES. Your production team on the last album needs to sit back and evaluate the purity of your voice before adding salt and pepper to an already well-seasoned voice. I understand there are formulas to some songs out there. In saying that Stan should write his own formula. Soulful, melodic - bring back musicianship. Stan being young may feel he needs to 'experiment' with what is available. 'Experiment' only with that which will enhance your already considerable vocal ability not with something that undermines your talent and thereby gives new listening audience the impression that your voice needs assistance. It was the quality of your voice that captured me Stan - not the way production teams can distort it. And another thing - I hope Sony are teaching you how to 'look after' your instrument. Voices need to be rested - like your muscles after a strenuous workout. Be true to your gift Stan, don't get misled by the whistles and buttons and once you've navigated that particlar minefield - then you will find an adoring audience waiting to be enthralled by a gift that is unique to you. God bless and kia kaha Stan.

    Totally agree with you Rawinia - Stan's voice doesn't need any sort of enhancement, and I heard him say in an interview that it's the live performances which really show how good a singer is and he loves doing those. I guess that's why so many of us enjoy his 'acoustic' performances because it really shows off his natural ability and talent - without any studio enhancements.
    On the album , the second track (can't think of the name but it's the one he does with Israel) my daughters (aged 3 & 6) don't like it because of the "funny voices" on it!
