    Anyone heard the song? I just heard it and it is def. the most experimental song Mike has been in.

    I uploaded it on youtube if anyone wants to hear it.

    It's kinda boring and doesn't use half of Mikael's potential as a singer :erk: They could've employed Steven Wilson aswell :lol:

    He's getting better and better. I can't believe that he doesn't practise at all. On one hand, he's lost some of the pureness he use to have before.

    What pureness? The guy's never sung better before. Watershed is his finest vocal performance and his singing on this track his most experimental.

    Compare his clean vocals on Blackwater Park to those on Watershed.

    Do you mean they are not as clean anymore? I'd say he sounds better the way he does now.

    actually, I believe you have a point but use wrong words.

    His clean vocals are more pure in newer records especially watershed this is a FACT.

    What you are talking about is the emotion and perhaps "natural" or "rawness" of his earlier cleans which you are absolutely right that they are.

    Whether or not the old cleans are better is not for me to decide but compare for example MAYH to watershed and you'll hear a very obvious distinction in his cleans

    Although I may like BWP slightly better than Ws, I think Mike's vocals, especially clean vocals, kill the ones on BWP...

    Even if his clean vocals have improved, I still like his clean vocals on MAYH best. When and Closure are great examples. Just something about it, I can't explain.

    he did have a cold during that recording though, so maybe a better comparison would be his cleans in Still Life. Either way, great vocal style.

    He can sing better these days, but I don't like his voice on songs like Burden... that slight harshness just doesn't suit his voice.

    Cool song. Nothing more than cool, though. Nice to hear Mike experiment this way, but that's not something I would regularly listen to.
