Okay. So i've expressed my feelings about who i feel are the worst act in the world today (See my Blazin' Squad thread), so i thought i'd follow it up with a thread for people to discuss the best musical act today. My vote would go to The Coral. My reasons for this are; 1 - James Skelly's Vocals & Vocal Writing ability. - I think this man has written some of the best vocal lines i have ever heard. He has a superb range of topics aswell, which i think helps no end. Take the lyrics from songs such as Leizah for instance (Clicky) and then the lyrics from a song such as Bill McCai (Clicky) and hopefully you'll see what i mean! 2 - The Guitarists. - Not the bunch of most talented musicians in the world but the write some fucking good riffs (eg. Goodbye/Pass it On) 3 - The blend of thier music. - The Corals music, imo, doesn't fit into one particular catagory. There are elements of R&B, Country, Rock, and some of the guitar riffs even manage to verge on Metal 4 - They put on one hell of a live show ^^ Well, thats all i can think of right now as i've only just got up. So if you feel up to it add who you think are the best act in the world today. And by today i mean still touring/recording albums etc. Oh, and i want reasons, not just the band name!
