    He sounds good, but still a crappy Anthrax song. If they feel the need to play a john bush era song I think they could come up with something better. Maybe What Doesn't Die or Room for One More.

    Jonnie does this mean you may actually go see them live, or do you still hate Joey so much that you wouldn't go see them live? This may be ground breaking here!

    He does it at least as good as John did on the Joey era stuff. He's not John so he won't be able to copy John's voice. This being said he comes awfully close to John's phrasing and interpretation. I think it's cool if they play one or two songs from "SOWN"

    I think that's how I feel about it. Only was one of John's best songs. While Joey comes sort of close to the phrasing it's still a bit off. I liken it to Bush doing Belly of the beast on GOTE, it just sounded more off than the other songs.

    I really wish they would do something new instead of trying to get Joey to sing Bush era tunes. There's plenty of songs they can do from that time frame and right now I just can't get excited about them playing live. I saw the reunion shows and it was awesome but I just get the feeling nothing new is going to come. We'll see another live DVD and some greatest hits type record.

    Are you that guy who commented on this video? :lol:

    Anyway, I like it! Sounds much better than the summer gigs! I'm still waiting to see a pro-shot video from Sofia.

    Still not that great, but it does sound better than the first time I heard him attempt it, still hard to get used to it. When John joined the band I went and saw them open for Fight and I was a HUGE Joey fan, but John won me over 100% that night, now going back to Joey, same as '05, it just isn't that good. We'll see, doesn't make it any easier to get into it when everyone seems skeptical about him even singing on the new album.

    What would be considered 'great?' if he had a voice implant to make it sound EXACTLY like John did it in the studio? This is not THAT far off. It's not drastically different than John. Does it sound exactly like John? No of course not. I have heard John butcher old Joey songs to death but you don't seem to care about that?

    I think Joey does a better job singing Johns songs than John did singing Joeys songs. Joey does have range, and can be diverse in what he sings. John is going to sound like John, he has minimal range and can't do many dynamic things with his voice. Joey can sing Rush, then go sing Dio, then Journey and then sing John Bush songs. John could never pull that off.

    At some point you are going to have to just accept that Joey IS the new vocalist for Anthrax and if you want to hear the John Bush era songs live this is what they will sound like. Even though I don't like this song it doesn't sound THAT far different than the original, especially live.

    And yes this mcmedia sounds like my twin. i may have a mancrush!

    Better? did you mean Aweful? This is like comparing a huge steaming pile of poop to another huge steaming pile of poop. Really i'm not a big fan of joey anymore you all know this, But seriously he sounds like he is trying to fuck it up on purpose. I don't think joey is a great singer but he is better than this, the "opera shit" mariah carey stuff he doin with it is ridiculous and glad im not goin to any new live shows cause i would jump on stage and kick him in the balls soon as i heard that awwwaaahhaawwooo shit, maybe then he could hold a note.
    I still think joey needs to sing joey, some new shit or atleast try something else. Is Joey anthrax's vocalist? for now. so just squat out this load of shit album youve been constipated with for how long? put joeys vocals on it, get it out and give old joey fans what they want and maybe just maybe surprise some jon fans. I wanted to hear dan's album, i was very excited to hear a return to thrash with a heavier sound and strong, powerful vocals, but its not happening, jon's not happening, just get something done with joey now, before this whole thing falls apart again. I'd rather hear anything rather than nothing. Either way the music should be good enough.
