Lead singer from Ra Ra Riot has some decent pipes. I think he would do well. Also the lead singer from Elbow would get through the first few rounds. Then have to get a makeover to continue advancing.

Great list. I’m still a little shocked that Love Inks is getting much love in the States. Their debut is solid.

I was in 8th grade when this album came out. I lived in the Rio Grande Valley and we did not have college radio and the internet was still pre-Al Gore. I could not help but gravitate toward this record. You have to remember, with only a few exceptions, radio was littered with Color Me Badd, Bryan Adams and Extreme. I recall buying this on cassette and my cousin getting “Nevermind” the same day on CD. (i was the poor one) Unfortunately it really does sound dated. The production and the “look-at-me” solos are a little much. ( I honestly feel No Code and Yield are much better records) But I still love what this record represents to me. This record eventually led me to the Pixies, Neutral Milk Hotel and Pavement. And for that, I am forever thankful.

rskva, I think the proper response is – SORRY.
KIP – “You know nothing of my work! You mean my whole fallacy is wrong.” And before you accuse me of plagiarism, that’s a quote from “Annie Hall.”
