The man is awesome. Nothing like some folk with an operatic singer.

I hear he is coming out with a new album soon, don't know anything else about it do you?

I can't believe you're the only person who's said Jeff Buckley. He only released one studio album when he was alive so I guess he isn't very well known unless you're a vocalist or big into music. But his voice really is amazing, his music is pretty good too. Grace is one of my favorite albums.

I love Greg Lake's voice, especially on In the Court of the Crimson King.

Ian Gillan has the most insane falsetto ever. He has right around 4 octaves I think, not very common.

Eddie Vedder is a great singer, great power and very emotional.

For all you guys who have said Chris Cornell, how many of you have heard the Temple of the Dog album? His voice is uh-may-zing, especially on the first track (Say Hello To Heaven).

Recently the Gift of Gab and Alicia Keys. But all time, I'd have to go with Aretha Franklin. (insert soothed smiley here)

What's your infatuation with Minus the Bear? I just don't get it. They are ok, but nothing special at all, IMO.

My obsession with Minus the Bear probably is closely related to the fact I'm a math major, and Minus the Bear is classified as a 'Math Rock' band. They are tremendously un-heard of for the amount of talent their band has; probably having to do with their refusal to sell-out to MTV.

Their guitarist is a genius; trying to replicate the sounds he creates on guitar is near impossible...he has mastered (and then some) the effects you can create with a guitar and an amp. The singer's voice never misses a note and is as soothing as anyone elses. The drummer is all over the place, and is so much fun to watch in concert (due to the immense amount of alcohol he drinks during the concert).

I can only re-call two to three songs they have written that are not good, not including the synthesizer instrumentals they throw on their albums sometimes.

I'm not the only one that feels this way; I am yet to find a professional review of their latest album that wasn't positive.

Like I said, they are OK, I just don't see anything that special. I'm not knocking you so don't think I am. Thats what makes music great, I'm just curious. Those reviews aren't bad, but nothing special.

I would rather listen to Knapsack than Minus the Bear, they have very similar sounds, but I think Knapsack does a better job.
