Here's another one of those ^&%$# surveys

I needed an outlet to express my love & admiration for......

1.) Lisa Gerrard (solo & Dead Can Dance)

No one has a better voice and if they come close their material usually stinks (ie Whitney Houston). She is fantastic.

The others:
2.) Hope Sandoval (Warm Inventions & Mazzy Star)
3.) Liz Fraser (especially w/ Massive Attack)
4.) Loreena McKennitt
5.) David Byron (Uriah Heep)

Burn some bytes - who do you like?

Just 5?!? Sorry rolleyes.gif

I can't agree more with your Lisa Gerrard choice...she is an excellent singer. Sacrifice proves her vocal capability perfectly...but I do like Brendan Perry's sensitive voice as well.

Elizabeth Frazer is also great...I would also put there Paula Frazer (Tarnation)...it must be something with the name I guess biggrin.gif

Perry Blake...an excellent irish songwriter, who's voice is so delicate and atmospheric that haunts you. Try his song "This Time Is Goodbye" to get a glimpse...

Thom Yorke (Radiohead)...there's something unreal in his voice. It's not just technically excellent, it's mostly that it manages to be so expressively melancholic that it turns you into a pessimistic masochist...I adore that voice tongue.gif biggrin.gif

Tim Buckley/Jeff Buckley...the same tragic fate put an end to some astonishing voices and great songwriters. What a shame... sad.gif

David Tibet...the lyricist and singer of Current 93. Listen to his Soft Black Stars album played live (Some Soft Black Stars Seen Over London) and be ready to break into pieces from his "narrative" beauty. He and Mark St. John Ellis of Elijah's Mantle have the best voices for almost "spoken word" albums...check "The Soul Of Romanticism" where he and Ozymandias have gathered some well known english poets (Shelley, Keats, Wordworth, Coleridge and Lord Byron) and made a great album.

Beth Gibbons (Portishead)...whenever she desperately ascertains "...nobody loves me" (Sour Times), you feel immersed in her emotional agony in a very soothing way, even if that sounds contradictory. Her first solo album is on its way...October 28th.
