I love the sound of Lee's voice, so I'm delighted that my vote has taken him into the lead.

Lee has a decent voice and he looks like a friendly person too.

I bet those who met him can second that.

Right now I'm at a tie between Thurston and Kim. After hearing the harmonous vocals in Do You Believe In Rapture, I think it will be difficult to take a stab at better sounding vocals.

Lee.

Denying it is simply stupid. The other idiots can't sing.

Couldnt agree more mate, except i think Jet Set gets a bit tedious. I love that song Sweet Shine, i think it has to be my favorite kim tune. I mean, its happy, but in a very dazey dreamy sorta way. Its so beautiful. I also like the song Tokyo Eye and Bone...and the opening track Winners Blues. Washing machine - Now THAT is a record. Track 3, Saucer-like is one of my favorite lee tunes, behind 'In the kingdom #19'. I also love kims voice on Washing machine and Panty Lies. The only song i dont like off washing machine is probably Little Trouble girl....i hate it. I abosloultly love the last few minutes of The Diamond Sea....those moments of wailing feedback are so powerfull.

Oh i voted Thurston : "Wind is whipping thru my - Stoopid mop"

Kim is original. She doesn't really sound like any other female vocalist, and at times, her voice sounds so feminine, but other times, it's strong and masculine. Lots of vocalists have the ability to sound androgynist, but she adds a bit more than usual, I think. Maybe it's the occasional innocence.
