I love the hell out of Blood but I'd be really, really happy if they never played it again.

For a more direct comparison, Springsteen has been screaming for years (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5zcvl1HocA&t=10m50s or http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kv8XqIQZMjY&t=7m54s) and he still sounds great. Different, but still powerful.

Sorry but Springsteen doesn't come anywhere close to doing stuff like Blood, Spin the Black Circle, Lukin, DTE, Comatose, Habit, etc.

I love Bruce but ask him to sing Blood night after night on an E Street tour. He'd be mute by now.


True but he has his far share of vocally taxing screamers, tours a heck of a lot more than PJ, is about 20 years older, and still sounds better. I think it's less to do with the fact that EV sings songs like DTE and Habit and more to do with the fact that he smokes 50 packs of cigs a day.

I may be in the minority here but I actually don't mind how songs like Blood, Habit or DTE sound these days. They don't compare to how they used to sound, but he can still pull off the gruff type of singing IMO. It's the 'clean' songs - Release, Black, Given to Fly - where he sounds breathy and obvious that the power of his voice has gone. But honestly, he still gives 100% on every song despite his voice so good on him.

Is Don Corelone an alternate universe Godfather who does organized crime in the name of Grunge?

I mostly agree with this.

I wish Eddie would just sing the right words in the verse about his pants, he always says the dumbest things and when he doesn't it sounds like gibberish anyways.

I dunno why that became the cheeky improv section of this song.

This. To a degree I can deal with Ed's recent nonsense but removing the "Admire me..." verse in favor of the whoah whoah whoah is border-line unforgivable.

This song is so much better when Ed plays guitar on it instead of Stone.

The 'moment' for this song was 1998-2004... but oh, what a moment it was!

I don't know, I'd say the 'moment' lasted until 2006. There are some ferocious versions that year where Ed's vocals are still totally on point. Mostly disappointing post-'06.

I always Lisbon night 1 to be a particularly great version from 2006.
