i dont think orphans is a good place to start for someone who is just starting to listen to TW
I can't stand his voice he's on david letterman right now.
i've heard his voice is raw and gravelly, but that kinda painful to listen to. i dug the music, but the voice. since i've never heard anything of his before, please tell me his voice isn't usually that ragged.
i don't really see why not, unless you're looking for a particular style.
i just think its a lot of material (some of it not too good) for a new listener. i think its best (with all artists) to start at the beginning and see how they evolved, especiall with TW. you get a better appreciation.
that's bullshit. there is quite a bit of range and versatility in his voice, imo, esp the earlier stuff. he can till sing "pretty", but he seems to be getting more "gravely" with age though...you should have heard him at bridge 99.
I think he's performing on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart tonight. No joke.
