Yes, i am a vocal hater but..there are few exceptions and many have asked me what they are.
I didn't always hate vocals, its just recently that i developed a strong dislike for them, and that happened when all of a sudden pop met trance, and the whining took over...yes, some of the ones i like have been remixed from pop..but the problem is that at some point instead of remixing into trance the tracks sound exactly like pop.
IMO the vocals should not dominate the music, they should not BE the track, and the best example is The Thrillseekers feat. Fisher - The Last Time, if you take the vocals away you will notice there is nothing to that track, there is really no music in it but just a sound filler for repetitious lyrics, which makes it boring and cheesy.
The vocals should blend nicely into the track to create harmony.
