I think what's so different about that album is he's singing in a lower range. He's never really done that all that much before. There was "Original Sin" and "Home by Now", and the middle bit of "Everything Louder", but that was just about it IIRC. A friend of mine always thought they were making him sing out of his range, like "Midnight at the Lost and Found" most of the album is too high for him. Really, it's no wonder he has difficulties with his voice. Not to mention Jim's songs, where you have to hit three high C's at the end of "Bat". When I sang that live, it was lowered for me. I couldn't do it. It was so hard sustaining that. Believe me, I have enormous respect for him, plus inhabiting the songs on top of that, where he loses himself in the characters.

Plus he said he was trying to play this character, of an angry nineteen year old guy. He's really pissed off. That's why he says "Only When I Feel" sounds so weird vocally. He could have done it the other way, but he was too invested in the character.

Add his age to the equation, and these are still Jim's songs, and I don't think he's all that well around this time either. His back became a huge problem after that. I heard a bit of him singing once and thought he sounded better than he did on "Braver". I feel like---if he does make another---some people will be expecting "Braver 2", vocals wise, but we'll be surprised. He'll be singing higher again, and he'll have more of that vibrato-sound from when he was younger. I heard that coming through again in whatever I heard.

Please, though, can we not stuff up the mix of the album this time? I really don't like that about "Braver".
