It's not so much the placement of vocals as it was the constant repetitive teleporting back and forth that I find very annoying. Sure, singers do move around on stage. What they don't do is go from standing 7 feet away to right smack in your face within .0002 seconds, and then spring right back a second later; and then repeat this 200 more times within the entirety of the song. The same is also true for guitar and piano. Anyways, I shall just concede that some people simply like heavily colored sounds.
