Love this band but acoustic doesn't suit his voice well at all.

I wish this band could be successful just as a studio band so that he never had to sing live or acoustic. God damn it's so bad.

I think they kill it in every live performance and acoustic performance.

But I'm sick of hearing this song played acoustic everytime they do something! Lets hear some other tunes

This is actually pretty nice. It translates well acoustically.

I don't ever understand the complaints for Transit performances. His voice always sounds like this, live and in the studio. I love it both ways and think that he seems to truly enjoy singing. Pitch perfect singers are boring, I enjoy hearing music performed with some heart.

I don't understand why people think that. These are professional musicians - they should be pitch perfect, AND they should "perform with some heart." How is that too much to ask?

I really like the latest Transit record, but I find nearly all their acoustic sessions just terrible. The harmonies aren't even close, everything's flat, and it just devalues the band to me, no matter how much I love Listen & Forgive.

There are PLENTY of bands out there who can perform acoustic, and be pitch perfect, and play with heart. Why settle for less?

This guy's voice inspires the fuck out of me. I'm not a great singer, but if he can make it then why can't I?

Listen and Forgive was probably top 3 for me last year, and I enjoy Something Left Behind immensely.
