*Orange marks notes with questionable registers: absolutely no use figuring out these.
*Blue marks probable non-modal notes.
*Red marks extremely bad, unimpressive or unintentional notes.
*Italics mark non-sung notes.

Carr had a weird voice... His high notes were often very strained and raspy live, but his studio recordings featured some very clean and relaxed higher notes. His timbre was that of a bright baritone, which, combined with his rather high tessitura, made singing the tenor parts easy for him. His speaking was quite low. For this, he is best described as a 'baritenor', a voice that possesses both significant baritone and tenor qualities.

He was one of my favourite members of KISS. Honestly, I prefer his version of "Beth" to Criss'.
