You mean the clarification that came after this post?

Your follow-up sounded more like damage control, to be honest.

The balance is a little better when it comes to singer-songwriters or R&B artists, but I imagine even there you're looking at a 10 to 1 ratio.
I'm late to the party, but this bears repeating. The problem is compounded by the fact that most female artists are manufactured with a specific image in mind, so the number of "genuine" female voices in music is very, very small compared to the male perspective.

So far, England is the only track from the new album I'm not really keen on. It kinda reminds me of Horses in My Dreams from Stories... - it just kinda drones on and on and PJ's vocals sound strained and awkward somehow.

Funny you should say that, as Horses is the only song on Stories that I don't totally love.

my clarification was more playing around with Cori than actually explaining myself. you took my comment and tried to make it into something it's not. when i was referring to female vocalists, i did so in the same way i would say "i prefer a Fender Strat guitar sound to a Les Paul guitar sound". it was a comment about the sound of the instrument, not some offensive remark about a gender. that's why i posted "would you recommend this to someone who really doesn't enjoy listening to female vocalists?", not "i hate women, should i listen to this album anyway?".


anywho, i've listened to this album twice now and i love it, even though all women are whores.

This won Mercury Prize?

Hmm... the guys at Mercury should watch Skins to get ideas as to what albums they should nominate as English/ Irish album of the year
