High Singing
Surkamp: Rofl that vibrato somehow manages to surprise me every time. But uh yeah, ridic singing. 5/5
Leven: Anybody else think he sounds like Tobi Sammet? Quite powerful highs; I didn't care for his tone on the dirtier notes though. 4/5

Vocal Arrangement
Gibbs: Can't tell how much of this is Barry. Very lush harmonies there though, wish I could tell who was who. 3.5/5
Murphy: Most of this all I heard was echo. Some octave doubling toward the end I believe that was really subtly mixed. 1.5/5

Best high singing
Leven: C'mon dude why? It's a high singing category and you have Mats Leven and you use this clip? Dude if you used the section after the guitar solo in Fire with Fire I'd give you a definite 5. Anyways this is decent but not amongst Leven's best singing in any respect imo, it's basically him at his most generic. 3/5
Surkamp: Always liked this section a lot. Crazy control and Surkamp has that cool piercing Geddy Lee ish tone that's always fun. 4/5

Best arrangement
Murphy: Didn't hear anything too spectacular arrangement wise. Nice vocal sound though. 2/5
Gibb: This was quite a pleasant listen. Classic 60s style harmonies here. 3.5/5

Best High Singing

Surkamp: Holy hell, what is that vibrato  Shocked Sounds like he has a whammy bar. The high notes are impressive and I really like the vocal arrangement. 4,5/5

Leven: The heavily-layered choir sound makes it difficult to hear his notes at some points. The sound is decent, but I'm not really a fan of the "dirtier" notes. 3,5/5

Best Vocal Arrangement

Barry Gibb: Wow, this is absolutely NOWHERE near the sound of the Bee Gees I know!!!!!! Total shock. Hmm, the whole arrangement is nice, the signature Beatles/Beach Boys sound is quite pleasant. 3,5/5

Murphy: I haven't heard much harmonies at all. Some really subtle ones at the end of your passage, but otherwise not much more than echo and one-vocal melody lines. 1,5/5

High Singing

Leven - mmm... i've got better highs :Pnah now seriously not that they aren't good but those are just a few screams so it's pretty hard to give more than 1.5
Surkamp - i really liked it, really thin highs they almost cut you 4

Vocal Arrangement

Murphy - i had a vision and i saw going hard on gym under this song, sweating getting dirty pretty meh performance though, i'll give 0.5 + because of the vision. 1,5
Gibb- Old school arrangement, reminds me of mamas and papas california dreaming, well a lot of songs sound like that anyway. Cool 3

Best high singing:
Surkamp: OMG I so love you for choosing this. Amazing vocals, and an amazing climax too :in love: 5/5
Leven: Hmm. It's not particularly bad per se but it sounds solo generic. Not too fond of the rougher notes, either. 2.5/5
Best vocal arrangement:
Gibb: Though I'm not sure how much of that is him, it's still a gorgeous arrangement, and what does sound like only his voice is very pleasant, too. 4/5
Murphy: What arrangement? 1.5/5

High Singing
Surkamp: Haha, always so freaky in the best way possible! Geddy on steroids. 4.5/5
Leven: Very impressive vocal take, although I would have used the "Fire with Fire" madness myself. I hear the Sammet resemblance as well, Sherick. Quite a regular song, apart from the great horns-ending, which impressed me songwriting-wise. 4/5

Vocal Arrangement
Gibbs: Great fit for the category. Not much to say about this one that hasn't already been said: great song with some very appropriate, gentle harmonising on top. 4/5
Murphy: Not the most appropriate choice for this category, I reckon. Alright track and vocal intricacies, but not much of straight vocal arranging happening around here apart from the robotic spoken sounds. 2/5

That's one of my favorite Therion songs and performances by Levén, but I admit that I was kind of clueless about the vocal arrangements.

Best high singing:

Surkamp: Perfect fit for the category. Would give it a perfect score, but the vibrato making me think of Yoko Ono hurts it slightly. 4.5/5
Leven: Not that many highs, but they were alright when they happened. 3/5

Best vocal arrangement:

Gibb: A cool and pleasant arrangement, but the fact it's not just him hurts it. 3.5/5
Murpy: Starts to fit the category at the end just barely. 2/5

David Surkamp/ginoo- Wow, very lady like tone and insane vibrato, and the notes he reaches are truly amazing. Might not be my favorite tone and he might do the same notes over and over but it was very impressive. 4/5

Levén/Rodrigo- Nice tone and all. With all the badass arrangements it has this could've gone for the other category, but the fact that there are many singers here made it prudent not to use it there. Still, while I hear many very good high notes here and there, this lacks a distinguishable lead vocal doing the highs. Apart of 3:40 to 4:00, a lead vocal doing highs is really absent through most of the clip. Still liked the highs on that part. 3/5

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

Barry Gibb and the Bee Gees/ginoo- Well, some very good harmonies indeed, this guys are the masters at that, a pretty soothing sound, but it wasn't that impressive and the fact that there are various voices always brings it down a bit. 4/5

Roisin Murphy/Rodrigo- So apart from some various voices going on at the beginning, there isn't really much arrangement going on on the section you indicated. Some light backing whispery ahhhs at the pre-chorus, and some good but not impressive at all harmonies in the chorus. Average and very mininal, almost unnoticable arrangmenets. 2/5

Phew, finally finished voting in all the Round 3 matches. Now off to round 4.
