Can anyone else think of anything else where he sings or has bars that bottom or peak at a particularly melodic pitch like the G♯2's from Institutionalized?

I really love the way Lamarr deploys his voice for different effects on songs. He's obviously not a singer, but has a very intriguing vocalist-talent with the different characters and tones he creates.

Also, he's certainly a tenor.

It's funny you say that as I originally had him down as a tenor, but I must have changed my mind thinking his lows sounded way to comfortable and his highs too pushed. But actually, his lows are pretty breathy and the pushed highs are probably because his voice is super undeveloped, since he doesn't use it for traditional singing.

he's a tenor for sure dude. his voice has no where near the weight of a baritone. his voice is just weird in general tho lol
