What tour year did Ed...

start enunciating more (not sure if that's the correct word or not)?  I noticed his vocal range was a bit more narrow in Boston.  I believe it was post-Backspacer tour.

    Either we are alone in the universe, or we are not. Both ideas are overwhelming. AE

    I don't know.  Maybe it started when he started solo touring.   

    I know what you are saying though, OP.  Not a strange question as it actually has something to do with music.

    Haha. I was close to ending with a smiley. But thought that would not be needed. Should have added it: :P

    Agreed there's been a change.  I do think Ed has gone through a couple different on stage changes.  Compare his between song banter on the early boots to now and there's a huge difference in how he sounds as well.

    He mumbles like an old man nowadays. Like he's playing everyones senile or drunk grandpa. Haha. Never gets to the point. Funny, but obviously different from the 90's or 00's.

    He had a bellow in his voice and a great baritone rumble up until 2003.  Not sure if that's what you mean OP?

    Maybe OP is talking about Ed's cadence (?) at the end of a phrase/melody. He embellishes certain vowel sounds, etc. kind of similar to what Tom Petty does.

    Yep, that is correct.  Backspace vocals are good though.

    Nope, not strange (it's not an aesthetic thing, it's the lead singer's voice).  But that was kind of funny, PJfan.

    Yes. Big difference in '09 that can kind of start being heard on the '08 tour. There were also big shifts in his voice between 2003 - 2005, 94 - 95 and 95 - 96. To me, 96 - 2003 is the sweet spot give or take.
    It's a hopeless situation...

    Speaking of Petty, that's one of things I noticed the most on the '06 US tour. Ed started talking just like him. Probably because they were touring together. Glad it didn't last.

    Ha... yeah, been a fan so long that you can see others personalities rub off on him.   Not picking on him - we all do it
  • brianwilsonbrianwilson Posts: 357
    But voice wise, I heard it start live on backspace tour, but his vocals were killer on the backspace record.  06 tour was still mid-career Eddie 
  • Spiritual_ChaosSpiritual_Chaos Posts: 5,759
    2008 was the first tour where I "heard" the wear and tear (on the boots). 2009 was a weakpoint live.
