All right, time for this week's song.

I picked This Is The Sound by The Exies. It's from their album A Modern Way Of Living With The Truth.

I love Scott's voice. It's so soft and raw at the same time, and I could seriously listen to it all day.

I chose this song because I really connect with it. It just really gets to me. It fits me.

Well, I like the point of the song... But... Forgive me for this... but it just sounds like everything else in the same genre. Nothing particularly poor about it, it's just like everything else. Just typical... And, I have developed a strong distaste for the American sounding vocals which this paticular genre is riddled with. No, I don't mean the accent, it's the style - which I'm only describing as American, since it only seems to be carried by people with American accents. Even if the people themselves aren't American lol.

But, nothing bad about it, just nothing good, besides the meaning.

Here's a new one for you from my Clive Nolan Collection... It's Caamora - Covenant Of Faith. It's part of a Rock opera called 'She' bassed upon the novel by H Rider Haggard. Sir Clive wrote music and lyrics and is also on Vocals. Unfotunatley, because of the way the tracks all run into each other, but are separated into tracks on the CD, this gets cut off at the end. All you miss is the word "Take" but still... Clickity

Oh, better! I love the music and the lyrics, but I don't like the voice. Still a bit too dramatic for me. :-/

I... what? I don't really know what you mean...?

Well, glad you liked the music and lyrics. I agree that Sir Clive doesn't have the greatest voice, but I like it because of the natural quality it has.

I don't see what's so dramatic about that song though... I find it inspiring! Maybe, you call dramatic what I call inspiring? But then, I do like dramatic... And most of the rest of 'She' is very dramatic! It fills me with such energy, I adore it! ^_^

But, huh? I don't quite get what you don't get lol.

I don't get the American thing you commented on? I'm just not sure exactly what you mean. :-/

By dramatic I mean that he sounds like he's trying too hard, like he's overdoing it.

Oh, right... Well, as I said, it's not actually anything to do with being American lol. It's just the style of vocals.. Which, I only seem to notice on people singing with American accents in that genre. I include Europeans in with that, when they obviously adopt the accent and style to sing in. Why is it that seemingly everyone sings in an American accent now? Everyone mainstream, anyway.

I don't really know how to describe the style though - But that song's a perfect example of it... it feels like nearly all modern music in that genre has similarly styled vocals. Slight exaggeration, I know lol. I can't really explain though... Words do not exist. :-/

Okay... I just can't see it lol. Oh well. lol.

I think it's because everyone does kind of see America as the center of the world. There's also a lot more Americans than there are Brits, so I think British English is more seen as an accent and American English as the actual language? Am I making sense?
