Ohh.... that's how he used to sound.

I believe he does "choose" the way he sings now as it presents little to no effort. That's why there's the drop consonants band whisper time singing: it's easier. It takes no effort to sing that way.

The other way, the old way, he has to use his diaphragm and his stomach muscles to belt it out.

Old way is 1000 times better.

I would love to hear the soft style, like on Obscured or Whir. That gentle approach.

That's what happened to Liam Gallagher. Roared away with no issues for about 8 years, and then his voice was f**ked and he never got it back.

Check out some live Oasis footage from 2005; at least Billy has never sounded like that!

People were saying Billy "tries too hard" on vocals now. I listened to the first 2 tracks off Zeitgeist the other day and the main thing that struck me was how little effort it sounded like he was putting into the vocals - and what's more, they're damn near completely dry, mixing-wise

Anyway regarding the op, I remember everyone freaking out when As Rome Burns started getting played, on account of it sounded more or less like "old Bill" and was actually kinda aggressive vocally - at least in relation to everything else we were getting from them at the time

this pisses me off possibly more than anything, because most of us here don't think he has released much good music in the last 18 years, and we like the band so much we STILL keep following closely and listening to every release

like we were getting all excited over Silvery Sometimes before it dropped knowing that there was like a 10% chance it would be even mediocre.

That performance of Eye isn't, in my opinion, Billy slipping back into his old voice. There are dropped consonants and terrible vibrato all over the place. "Turn... to the gates of 'ehvahhnn," etc.

I'd also say that just him trying to whine and scream isn't solely what made what his old singing style was.

I'd like to see some recent examples of Billy actually "singing" like he used to. Find some slower, mellower songs, that don't have him using terrible vibrato and dropped consonants, and I'll take back what I said in the other thread: that his voice got fucked up from many years of screaming, that a vocal coach told him to lay off and change shit up, that he now can't get out of bad-sounding habits, and that it isn't a "choice" of his.

He came close to the mellow / soft style a few times on the Shiny tour, at least from what I heard on the Seattle broadcast. Close, but not exact. Vibrato and the catch in his throat ruined it.

It's strange to admit that the closest he's come on record has been during the "for lovers" section on Anaise on MtaE. Again, close but no banana. He did the soft-sigh / double tracked voice on those parts, but did use vibrato. That's the closest I've heard on record.

And snarly Bill appeared on One and All but again, not quite.
