IT SEEMS SO POINTLESS TO KEEP THIS THREAD AROUND WHEN WE KNOW HE HAS STRONG EB6S WE DONT CARE BECAUSE THEYRE UNMUSICAL AND WE ONLY CONSIDER HIS THREE GOOD HIGH CS HIS F5 HIS A5 AND A COUPLE OF LOW NOTES

EXACTLY SO WHAT I'M SUGGESTING IS TO ELIMINATE EVERYTHING EXCEPT THOSE LAST FEW EXAMPLES THAT YOU LISTED AND LET HIS THREAD JUST COMPRISE OF THOSE UNTIL YOU FIND ANY OTHER SIGNIFICANT MUSICAL NOTES BY HIM

ITALICS EXIST FOR A REASON AND MAXIM DRINKS TOO MUCH

Though come to think of it threads would look a lot nicer if we put non-sung notes in a separate section underneath the actual sustained notes, at the moment the italics are kind of hard to distinguish from the rest.

Or we could get rid of all the aimlessly screamed high notes and randomly spoken low notes, and just list italicized notes when they're produced in a remotely musical way. I don't know why anyone would care what pitches a guy is shrieking while maniacally ranting about various movies, especially when if he already has a pretty solid singing range.

To be honest, his screams and maniacal rants are more well renowned by his fans than his actual singing. It sounds pretty intentional to me so I'm not against counting some of the more prominent ones.

Just because he's renowned for screaming his ass off all the time doesn't make those screams any more musical...

Who said he's about musical stuff.
But hey, his screams could actually be considered pretty non-aimless and non-unmusical, since he evidently aims at demonstrating a wide vocal range Laughing

I refuse to think if you found a string of E♭6s as strong as his in a song you would be against counting them. They're basically like what you said about Patton's "Litanies" B5s and such: the notes are pretty cool (okay, that's arguable, but they're not particularly less cool than Patton's), the context is not.
I'd also say his singing range is hardly solid- wide range, sure, but the notes are few and well spaced- most actors probably have a more substantial sung range than him.
I'm all for forgetting this thread even existed or at least sink it into the WIP section until he decides to join a Faith No More cover band.

Well I happen to enjoy note watching actors and their ranges are rarely musical, are you saying we should limit note watching to music/singers alone?Mad

I mean, to acknowledge B6's post, I can agree that there's a certain point where the line gets blurry between "intentional" notes outside of a musical context and insignificant casual speaking/random screaming, so I won't try to enforce anything and say that you CAN'T count this guy's highest and lowest notes. I just more meant in general, we should be working towards the goal of making this more of a singing-oriented forum, that discusses the ranges that various people sing in and occasionally acknowledges notes that people hit while not necessarily singing, but using the same approach that they use towards singing high or low notes. So yeah, if some of Doug Walker's screams are the same kind of approach as his high singing, then it's okay to acknowledge them up to a certain extent. I just don't think we should fill almost the entire OP with notes like that, because like I said before, there comes a point where that's pretty much just keeping the spirit of Martin alive on this forum. And nobody wants that.

Some great high singing starting at 28:09 in his Les Mes review.


Some great darker singing starting at 40:22 in his Moulin Rouge. Epic high at 43:14.


2:28 to 2:52, that sustain.Surprised 


:18 to :54. How the Surprised .

I love this guys singing. Wish he did it more. Probably my favorite tone of any singer on his high end.

I honestly think NC started going downhill after he returned to the character and revived NC.

I don't know why he did that either. He already told people on at least 4 other occasions exactly what he thought of the movie. That was really cheap and unprofessional. I wouldn't even say it's a bad movie.

This whole video just reinforces my true feelings about him, he's a pseudo-intellectual asshole who thinks taking an unfavourable stance o something popular makes him different. Not ranting, just had to say that.

Yeah, he's pretty butthurt about it. And it doesn't even have a good payoff: it just ends with him saying "I can't really say whether it's good or bad... See it for yourself."
I agree with Metalhead tbh; ever since he "returned," his videos have had some pretentiousness to them (I mean, his character was always supposed to be an opinionated asshole who thought he was always right, but I watched the ending to his Matrix review and totally got the impression he believed his own hype). Some made me laugh, but mostly they were disappointing, especially compared to his older videos.
I'm not that bad though: I have a friend who went from loving all of his videos to hating Doug Walker completely within the course of a few months though, which really puzzled me.
