Am I the only one here who just doesn't care for the music of Ellis. Actually, the music is ok, it's the singing I don't like. Just MHO.

Cheers...Todd

I'm 50/50 on this one...I think Stacey has a great voice, but with such diverse material as is on E-III you perhaps don't really get to appreciate it. If they stuck to one genre for an album, it might show off what she can offer in a better light.

Live it's a whole different story however, this is where she shines, no matter what she's singing, oh and she plays a mean Bass too!!

Just to chuck in my 2 penn'orth, for me the best thing about EIII is the variation - more than anything else, including Stacey's voice.

My take on it is that Stacey has one of those voices that some people just don't like, and that's OK! (Though sometimes they will acknowledge that the person is a good 'singer').

There are a few singers like that, Janis is probably the ultimate example and a particularly apt one to boot. (Another in a similar style is Candy Givens from Zephyr.)

Top Cat,

You're right on the money with that comment, and with those other two examples. I don't care for the singing of either Janis Joplin or Candy Givens, either. It's too harsh to my ears. It may be pleasing to others, just not to me.

But if that's what rows your boat, row to your heart's content! That's why there are so many varieties of music out there - something for everyone.

Cheers..Todd
