nirvana. radioheads catalogue hasn't been as constant when it comes to quality records like nirvana (ex: pablo honey). all of nirvanas albums are great.

This would be an appropriate thread for a pic of the guy on Vieuphoria who gets asked whether he likes The Pumpkins or Red Red Meat more.
"I enjoy both of them!"

I really enjoy radiohead but as far as singers go, Thom isn't "great" by conventional standards. He has a unique voice and a decent range but to many his voice is like nails on a chalkboard. I still don't think there is anyone in music today who's voice can sound as good to me as Maynard.

Obviously you have no idea about music, vocals or range. You fucking moron, go read pitchfork so you can figure out what albums to purchase next.


Incase you don't realize it I'd say Maynard has Thoms range beat by at least a full octave, probably way more.

You're pretty stupid if you think Maynard has Thom beat by a full octave. It's the other way around. Where has Maynard ever gotten as high as Thom does on Where I End and You Begin? Where has Maynard ever gotten as high as the high vocal on I Will, or as low as the low vocal on I Will? Listen to that song and shut the fuck up know-nothing.

thom and kurt both have irritating voices. i like their music and the voices go well with the tunes they make.

Obviously you have never seen Tool live or listened to A Perfect Circle. I'm a big Radiohead fan and Thom York fan but its just a simple fact, he isn't as good of a singer as Maynard. His range is worse and his voice is worse. When Maynard hits a high note he sings, when Thom hits one he squeeks or squeels.


Just so you understand listen to the live version of Pushit on the Salival boxset. He gets really high there, or in Three Libras, Sleeping Beauty, Judith, The Package, Blue...and he gets very low in some of Tool's songs. Not to mention he can out scream just about anyone out there....and its actually in key.

Like I fucking said, listen to the part where he's floating around before the I will eat you alive part in where I end and you begin. That's singing in every sense of the word. Maynard rarely ever hits high notes, and when he does he's using that strained sounding voice of his. It's a simple fact, that Maynard is a great singer--but Thom Yorke has more range, easily.

So I know how Tool fans will make ridiculous claims and try to say things that aren't facts as "widely known beliefs" or "facts" in order to make every member of Tool sound like the godsend of their instrument or song-writing ability. So quit being a stupid dork and shut the fuck up already.

rampant- (adj.) 1 Extending unchecked; unrestrained: a rampant growth of weeds in the neglected yard.
2 Occurring without restraint and frequently, widely, or menacingly; rife: a rampant epidemic; rampant corruption in city government.

3 Rearing on the hind legs.
4 Heraldry. Rearing on the left hind leg with the forelegs elevated, the right above the left, and usually with the head in profile.
5 Architecture. Springing from a support or an abutment that is higher at one side than at the other: a rampant arch.
6 Off to work

Are you trying to say that Thom's voice doesn't often sound strained? Ahahaha nevermind, there is no way we can have a real discussion. You are obviously mentally challenged. I never said anything about the rest of Tool, just that Maynard was a better singer(range and clarity blah blah) than Thom. I didn't say you had to like him better. Also why all the "so shut the fuck up" comments? Is that the best you can do? How sad.

Did you not understand my comment or something? Ignorance is rampant, as in people like you (the ignorant) are rampant (extending unchecked). Exactly how stupid are you?

No I'm not. But it sounds like he's straining on purpose. At that part in Where I End he's singing higher than he usually does, and isn't straining at all. And as for the shut the fuck up comments, it isn't exactly the best or worst I can do. It's just what fits. You're a dumbass who knows nothing about vocals, apparently, and you need to shut the fuck up. Or atleast give some example of Maynard singing with more range than Thom.

Read number 6. You said you were off to work. And you also said ignorance is rampant. Playing with words here, ignorance equals rampant, number 6 "off to work". You were "off to work" so you were rampant. Now throwing in all wordplay this means that you = off to work = rampant = ignorance. Couldn't figure that one out on your own, eh Maynard?

EDIT: Sorry, ignorance there.

I_was_aborted
04-22-2004, 03:24 PM
Except rampant doesn't equal stupid. My god, are you 13 years old or something?

I even stated some songs which Maynard sings very high on. Also incase you do know not, falsetto is something different than just the normal range and is often how Thom sings high, Maynard hits some good high notes without even using a falsetto.

Ignorance is rampant. Jokingly putting a definition of rampant as "off to work". You were "off to work." Ignorance is "off to work."

There that's a better explanation.

Didn't see the edit. Nothing in those songs is really impressive. The most impressive I've ever heard his voice was on the song Brena. Anyone can scream in key, douche.
