In this case it was partly a laugh. First it is stated that with today technique you can do wonders to the voice, next they criticise his weak voice in the Early Days line "if I try": trahahahay. As if it it wan't obvious that it was intentional.
Idiots well so much for their credibility
So if we undertand this so-called critique correctly they can fix his voice with technology for everything else on the album except they couldn't do that on Early Days ? Or maybe another take on the vocal if they wanted to "smooth it out"? How transparent could they possibly be? Sad thing is there are a lot of people who believe nearly everything they read and will acquire these types of opinions.
And of course Paul just can't win with some people as I have previously mentioned on this site. If he doesn't use today's technology he is not contemporary enough and dated. If he does use it, they are covering up his weaknesses.
Meanwhile for those who get him, he has created another masterful work of art that people in the know completely understand
