I don't think we should judge artists songs based on how they are made, unless they are stolen like DJ Rankin. I don't really care how a song is made, personally. It's the result that matters to me. I like the sound they produce, even though it isn't really real guitar all the time but rather multiple recorded segments put together along with keyboard solos. The only thing that I don't like about it is that then their live performance is never really as great as how their songs sounds like.

I think hating a band just because their song is not played with real instruments is worse than hating a song because it was remixed.

I've also been listening to the Evangelion Shin Gekijōban: Ha (Rebuild of Evangelion 2.22) soundtrack and the Zelda Oracle of Ages OST Remix Essence of Lime

well, you see, i wouldn't mind it if they actually did music that depicted their personal skill level.  Im not saying their novice musicians or anything, but me, as part of a band and from many personal experiences; i hate it when a band edits or alters their music to such an extent that it appears to be amazing, so they get chosen to perform above the other band (aka my band :( lol) even though when they actually perform live, they cant play it nearly as well as the demo recording.. :/

I used to, and i guess i still do, like the music dragonforce makes.  But if they need to edit their music that much, (its like you said DJ, they have multiple recordings, and they speed it up as well), then they lose my vote, just my personal opinion.
 i wouldnt mind it if they stopped the god-like guitar solos, and just go for insanely inhuman ones.. :D

@tsukasa.  I like j-pop too.  its always got a like beat and rhythm to it, even though i don't understand what they are saying.. :P that godannar song is pretty cool

Yeah I agree that if the band tries to pass themselves off as a better band than anyone else but in fact edit their songs, it doesn't look too good. Personally I like how their stuff sounds like, though. I like Sonata Artica more, though. But if someone loads Albeton Live and makes a metal song in it and it sounds cool, I'll love it, even if it was not made with real instruments.

To me music is a form of art and expression. We should be free to express this art how we want.
