That guy can't sing."
I think it's time for someone new.
I hear ya Dipsy, Amirante isn't the greatest vocalist out there, but come on, the guy
sing. Singing is one of those odd things that people seemingly either "are awesome" at or "suck terribly."
If I ask someone if they are good at hockey, some 30-year-old in an adult men's league will answer "yes." I ask him if he's good at singing, he'll laugh and say "hell no." It's as if to be considered a good singer you have to be better than 99.9% of people out there, whereas to consider yourself good at other things the bar is much lower. I never understood that.
Point is, Amirante is great, though not as good as some others
It's just pain.
