Favorite Female Vocalists!

Recommended Posts

I checked out Rubicon a while ago when I got a recommendation for Tristania. The new vocalist did nothing for me. I then went back and tried out Widow's Weeds. That was fantastic. Vibeke's voice was great and the musicianship was so much better. So, where in their career did Tristania start sucking (because it obviously happened somewhere)?

Tristania started to suck after World of Glass which is listenable, but nothing huge. Morten Veland left in 2000 to start Sirenia, and he was the songwriter and it was more or less his band. He was the force in the band. When he left, they lost the unique part of the band. But Widow's Weeds and Beyond the Veil are two good albums. Especially Widow's Weeds is damn good. And World of Glass is OK.

I preferred Oceanborn era the most. When she switched to less of an operatic style of singing I felt her voice lost some impact. Oceanborn is still a great album though.

So true, I feel the same way.

Off the top of my head:


There's something so damaging about Lacey's voice which I adore. It brings across those pained emotions portrayed in the band's music, and that's something I really appreciate with Lacey's way of singing. It's what makes Flyleaf distinctive and timeless if you ask me.



As for a solo pick, it'd have to be Ellie Goulding now that I think about it. It's really too bad her music is such a bore but she has one of the best, if not the best voice in current mainstream music. Forget Adele, Goulding's voice is soft, lush and effortlessly gorgeous, she deserves to make much better music that suits it. I'd enjoy her much more. The song closest to how I'd like her to sing more often is 'Love Me Like You Do', acoustic version. 



I'll edit this with more picks once I think over it.
