It is clear you do not like his voice (I do not particularly enjoy it with Maiden either) but that is a bit extreme, isn't it?I remembered liking the radio edit of "Virus", but listening to it again, he's so out of key that the attempts to harmonize with himself on the "all in your mind" section just sound like interference patterns from bleating goats. And it's sad, because songs like "When Two Worlds Collide" and "The Educated Fool" are actually sort of decent when Blaze's mouth is shut, but then he opens it again and it's like he's projectile vomiting all over the master tape.
Personally I think your an idiot. Everyone’s entitled to there opinion of course but your post sound more like a pure blaze bashing attack which was quite aggressive and rude. If you don’t like his voice fine, your choice, but to say things like he’s vomiting over the master tapes or sounds like a goat is just plain wrong.Fair enough. Personally, I can't unhear it.
Your grammar leaves me feeling pretty confident that you're wrong.Personally I think your an idiot.
It's how I honestly feel after re-listening with an open mind. On a handful of songs Blaze sounds pretty decent, but on most he sounds like they pulled a random person off the street and had him bang out a single take and put it straight on the album. On the softer, lower register sections he's horribly out of key and sounds like he's falling asleep; and on the louder, higher parts he can barely control his vibrato and tremolo, so their frequencies keep changing, and that's why it sounds like a chorus of bleating goats when he does his own backing vocals.If you don’t like his voice fine, your choice, but to say things like he’s vomiting over the master tapes or sounds like a goat is just plain wrong.
Yes, of course. If you are in a general internet forum. Forums like this should be more professional with who they put in the moderator seat. People that google Iron Maiden Forum and come here most be so disappointed when they realize it's actually 10-15 North American friends running the whole thing.The Internet forum.
I remember back in 2006 I was so excited because before Youtube I could not get hold of it. Considering how much I like The X Factor, my disappointment with this song was instant...Come on boys, calm down and get to agree on Blaze's worst studio moment (fortunately, not a particularly well-known one) :
It makes me think of Homer Simpson being frightened:
However, it doesn't mean that Blaze's input was totally devoid of great moments in my opinion (I can think of "The Edge of Darkness", "Fortunes of War", "Como Estais Amigos", the "Doctor Doctor" cover or "The Aftermath" for example).
