    Why does Maynard sound so different on The Pot?

    Sounds like Maynard to me, but I hear what you're talking about. Sounds to me like he's probably singing from his head voice.

    "It does sound like a female at first (on "Pot"), but he's just using his voice in a way he hasn't on an album before" I got that from Amazon other than that I got nothing.

    i def hear Maynard in the phrasing. The studio can make you sound like anything you want (if your budget is big enough). The phrasing is the giveaway tho.

    It always sounded like it was electronically pitch-shifted; either an outboard effect unit or a plugin, imo.
