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?
