Vinicus, I couldn't agree more, if you look at people treading the boards in the top 40, all their stuff sounds exactly the same, as if it's done to chemical equation. There's a difference between having a sound, and all your songs sounding the same.

glenn has a library of tones to choose from, so it's easy on the palette. in the same token, any artist can get a bit boring, if it seems they're just ticking boxes.

When I heard 'wasted again', I couldn't tell it was Glenn singing, at least until the pre chorus

Glenn voice is GREAT. No doubt about that. He is groundbreaking in hardrock history. One of the pioneers of the genre. Listen to Trapeze, Purple, Sabbath, Hughes Thrall and his solo work. Great stuff! But what makes him very special is the fact that he still is a superb singer (also live). Together with RJD (RIP). They are the only two hardrock singers who have the same high level as in te seventies. In fact Glenn's voice has become beter and stronger through the years.

(Gillan, Coverdale, Plant etc. still good singers, but they can't do it live anymore on that old high level). Glenn still does and that makes him the true VOICE OF ROCK

Grace and Todd I am with you on this thoughtful topic from Hughesfan.

I too prefer Glenn really rocking out. I have said to his face on a couple of occasions that I firmly believe that "the funk" is already in there whatever he produces. The example I used in my last intervew with him was Madeleine from Addiction which to me is an tremendous fusion of what is best about Glenn Hughes. Extreme? They couldn't hold a candle to Glenn in this mood.

One of my faves from the F.U.N.K album was ironically Oil and Water which is really a more full on rock song and not supposed to be on the album and yet has the funk inflections we all know and love. Fused too. It's as if he was never out of a rock band.

Hughesfan I suppose it boils down to our ears and how we respond to what's on offer. I used to hate the falsetto Geddy Lee and Jon Anderson because they reminded me of the Bee Gees. But I would be wrong in claiming that these singers are bad. Very wrong. I just like man to sound like a man and a woman to sound like a woman. Call me old fashioned but there it is.

In contrast, Glenn has intrinsic power in his voice which takes him above and beyond these top performers. That's why I am looking forward to BCC.

Any artist worth his salt will experiment, go back to his roots, take risks and sometimes fail to please certain sectors. Take Neil Young for example. I think what's important is that we can pick and choose over a 40 year career what we want from the buffet. Thankfully we're not dealing with a cabaret artist here.
