Your favorite vocalist...

  1. I'd go with Peter Cox of Go West.... his voice has stones, pitch, groove, and his ability to go from natural to falsetto is amazing <c:

  3. He (Peter Cox) sings with his whole face... plus, I miss the synth pop, and real talent. This seems mixer feed live audio. Sounds good on speakers or headphones.... Park your dime - sized smartphone speaker, it won't get you there.
