Yeah I see what you are saying Marcus. The thing is, when I listen to The Dream Engine for example, I hear singers with great voices (technically better then Meat) but they just lack that who other dimension.

I love Meat but I do have to wonder about some of his career choices. I think he is a good actor but I have seen him in some films and shows that just plain suck. The kind of stuff you expect a no name actor to do just for the paycheck. Then he does something like Fight Club that kicks ass. Its like he has trouble picking good projects.....
