What I don't understand is that after six years or so of vocal coaching if he still sounds this bad, how bad must he have sounded in the first place and with him being such a terrible singer why was it decided he would sing in the band in the first place?
I can't defend his vocals at all, although I can't say that we can label the band "bad" because of that facet, good, well-constructed music is still good, well- constructed music. I feel like Senses Fail is very polarizing. When I saw them back in 2003-2004 in Chicago I remember thinking that Buddy showed more passion on stage than I had seen out of the entire local scene I came from. So, although he may not have a great voice, he gives it all to the crowd, which I think is where a lot of the love for him comes from. Plus, as teenagers in a band, you kind of just go with what you have, I'm sure when they first started they had no idea they would be on their third studio album one day.
