I love these three songs, but I am curious as to whether or not Jake is feelin the pain on his cords. His screams seem to be getting less throaty. I know Spencer had issues after TOCS, hence the change from that album to DTGL.
No, he changed his vocals on 2 accounts: one was his continued training with Melissa Cross. The second, which he stated on numerous occasions, is that he was imitating Dallas' screams on TOCS as that was his first album with them and they were used to that style. His earlier bands all displayed the screaming that he is now known for.
