I checked every song from their albums (not including B-sides/extras). I probably missed some harmony notes hidden in the mix though.

I have the version of "What Went Down" with the DVD, still haven't watched it, thanks for reminding me I have it.

I would have thought you'd have more notes than this though if you'd checked all of their albums?

I did not include notes under A4 for highs, because he's got a looot of G4's, most of which are not particularly interesting. What's quite funny is that Antidotes has barely any high or low notes, and most song have about one octave of vocal range or even less, he got really better on the following albums and especially in What went down.

Someone with a better ear than me should check out Birch Tree and This Orient. It sounds like there are low notes hidden in the layered vocals but I can't pitch them.

I can hear E5s on the backing vocals and yes, the low harmony in the chorus gets down to F♯2 I believe. But don't Walter Gervers and Edward Congreave also sing back up? Could those be them instead?

Might wanna switch that around.

Anyway, considering he has so few notes, I don't see why it couldn't be extended down to G4.

G4 is definitely a high note for this guy and I'd agree with your assessment that he's a tenor.

I'd say tenor as well, his voice is just very gritty.

Walter does sing in Albatross (CCTV, around 5:00), though it's not studio.

The F♯2 in Birch tree is definitely him, though I'm not hearing any E5.

in the verses, use headphones and turn the volume up, there seems to be a vocal track singing the octave up. It could just be an effect on the vocal track overdub though

I'm not hearing anything even on headphones. There are two tracks but at the same octave and a bit of delay.


Is that an A5 in Wear & Tear at 2:55 ? I don't know if it's him.
