Best high singing: Colin Blunstone "She's Not There"
Time stamp: 0:00 - 2:29

Okay, so this whole song is sung in the upper registers of his voice.  I personally find it beautiful, a relatively well known song as well.  Please enjoy!  



Best vocal arrangement: Brian Wilson and his Beach Boys "Good Vibrations"
Time Stamp: 1:14 - 3:36

Well, looks like I win!

We're looking at 10 seconds to 2 minutes for both categories.

Right, thank you! I hope you don't mind, but I went a little over on the first link because I think it be unnecessary to cut off the song 15 seconds before it's over just to fit the limit. If it's really important that it's perfect timing I can cut it again though.

Kepp:
Best high singing: Colin Blunstone "She's Not There": The fact that you couldn't just use one verse and one chorus when they're all identical is annoying... Anyway verses are cool, chorus is a bit disappointing. And the same goes for the singing, don't really like the falsetto in the chorus. 3/5

Best vocal arrangement: Brian Wilson and his Beach Boys "Good Vibrations": Well it's one of the most famous vocal arrangements ever, and for a reason. But it's difficult to judge how much you actually enjoy something when you've already heard it a hundred times. 3/5

Haha, what the hell guys. I agree with you Sippe, but i'd say that just because you've heard it 100 times doesn't take away from the fact that the category is "best vocal arrangement."

It does when I can't tell if something is good or if I'm just used to it.

If that's really the problem then use your imagination and pretend you never heard it before. If you don't have much of an imagination, than listen to it from a musicality standpoint. Anyway, I still agree with what you said and I do understand what you mean. This song just doesn't get old for me, I try not to play it a lot so it won't lose it's spark.

Hey, it works for me. Either you don't have much of an imagination or I practice mine too much.

Btw, where is inhibitions?

High Singing: Regina Spektor "Eet"

The build up is great

Vocal Arrangement: Gary Clark Jr. "Blak and Blu."

Underwhelming, but chill.

High Singing:

Regina- Very nice clip and while I really dig the sound, I'm gonna take off points cause it wasn't that great an example of high singing. There was only a little bit in the clip and it wasn't that impressive. Sounded nice though 3/5
Blunstone- Decent singing, he has an interesting sound 3/5

Vocal Arrangement:
Brian Wilson- Pretty much perfect for this category, great arrangement 5/5
Clark Jr.- Sounded fine but really boring 3/5

High singing
Regina: Really dig the sound and the highs were good albeit sparse. 3.5/5
Blunstone: Good control of falsetto and the transition spots. Just a bit unexciting imo. 3/5

Arrangement
Clark Jr: Basically just seconding Big Brother here. Some decent layering but got boring to listen to as it progressed. 3/5
Wilson: This relies a BIT too heavily on the other Beach Boys to fit under the one voice idea but obviously great vocal interplay regardless. 3/5

Best High Singing
Colin Blunstone: Great falsetto control, but the lack of variation in the music itself does the vocal no justice. 3.5/5

Regina Spektor: Lovely singing, understated but powerful. 4.5/5

Best Vocal Arrangement

Brian Wilson: Great vocal delivery, but I do also think the others are a bit too prominent to consider it a solo achievement. 3.5/5

Gary Clark Jr: Although the vocal has a nice, warm sound, there isn't much to say about the actual layering. Still smooth, though. 3/5

Best high singing:
Blunstone - Nice sound, not super impressive high singing to be honest yet considering this is a 60s pop rock song (keep in mind this is before going up the fifth octave constantly was a thing) I think it suits it fairly well. 3.5/5
Spektor - Quite a nice and pretty sound here too altho like others said the highs themselves seemed sparse yet they seem to suit the mood of the song fairly well, nice control too. 3.5/5

Best vocal arrangement:
Wilson - Well anything by the Beach Boys would be a logical choice, like others have said it can be hard to tell where Brain actually fits there but considering how notable their harmonies are in the music world in general I'd say it counts well enough, nice interplay between the harmonies and lead vox for sure and their signature sound definitely suits the vibe they're going for. 4/5
Clark Jr. - I felt I like I got the gist of this within the first 30 seconds or so which is probably why some others felt bored by this after awhile, so I feel this could've been trimmed a bit better. As for the clip itself, I do like the harmonies themselves and it fits with Gary's soothing tone, there's just not too much going on beyond that tho. 3/5

Indeed Sandblasted, to be honest none of my singers have any tremendous, impressive high singing by the general forums standard. Arthur can get into the fifth octave but pretty uncontrolled and shouty, Colin has one C5 that I can recall and then a few shrieks, and Brian has tons of great fifth octave falsetto but I don't think anyone would call it impressive but me. Thanks for the nice review man.

High singing
Regina: Might not be the best choice for this category, but her singing itself sounds great, plus I dig the Coldplay-esque song. 3/5
Blunstone: Man, this song sounds great! Blunstone sounds so fine. A perfect example of vocal range =/= necessary for great singing. 4.5/5

Arrangement
Clark Jr: Starts off very promisingly, but doesn't really evolve to fit into this particular category, considering the other voices singing as well. What a dang great track this one sounds, though! Straight to my playlist. 3/5
Wilson: A classic, what else can I say? You can really hear their influence on a huge bunch of modern groups, understandably so. 4.5/5

Man, this round had a great set of songs. Loved all of them.

Best high singing:

Blunstone: Not exploring extreme vocal highs, but nevertheless some fine high singing. 3.5/5
Spektor: Good, but not the greatest choice for this category. 3/5

Best vocal arrangement:

Wilson: Speaks for itself. As it's not all Brian Wilson, I have to lower the score slightly. 4/5
Clark Jr: It actually fits the category. That's good. Nothing too amazing, though. 3/5

Blunstone/Kepp- Well, nothing really very high or technically impressive in this song, still it's some very good sounding, tasteful, well delivered heady tone. I like it. 3,5/5

Regina Spektor/Inhibitons- The flute like high notes really took me by surprise, sadly they're only in a very short part of the clip. Apart from that, well, it's pretty much like Kepp's clip. 3,5/5

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Beach Boys/Kepp- Well, classic, amazingly well done harmonies. Can't give perfect score because the ideal would be all being the singer competing, but what the hell, it still deserves credit. 4,5/5

Gary Clark/Inhibitions- Very well achieved, layered multi octave harmonies. A nice fit for this category. Love the melisma "heeeey"s at the end. 4,5/5

Yep, technical tie guys

Thanks guys, I am really glad to see such positive reviews for my singers. And "Good Vibrations" got pretty much exactly the kind of reviews i'd expect.

Best high singing:

Blunstone: Most of this isn't that high, but it's pretty good. Would've given it a higher score if it was in last week's soft singing category. 3/5
Spektor: Same as above, but I liked the high part here more. 3.5/5

Best vocal arrangement:

Wilson: Great arrangement, but the fact it's not all him hurts it. 4/5
Clark: It's a very pleasant arrangement, but nothing too complex. 4/5
