The very first time I heard KSK I was reminded of Beethoven. I hear strong Romantic (more Classical-Romantic, actually) use of chromaticism in a lot of her melodies, but it was always most...

Pretty sure she's saying "Das heiß," which one of my German-major friends said made sense, although I forgot her explanation. So I did a little poking around and found a site listing "das heiss" as...

I've been a SR evangelist for years. As a musician, many of my friends are also musicians and musicians are always looking for good music. It makes them very easy to proselytize. I went to college...

Yes, I understand. But it's an issue of precision, not accuracy. From an international standpoint (outside English-speaking countries), there is a British accent, the same as there is an American...

^ I didn't think those reasons were fuzzy. In fact, the analysis you gave is exactly what I'd prefer to a simple hierarchy. Comparing music shouldn't be linear, as though somehow everything falls...

I love "nuke." In fact, if I had been her language coach, and she had sung it "correctly," I would have recommended the mispronunciation. It's the same as a vast number of (native) singers who...

I don't think I communicated myself clearly. My problem with A > B is that it is unfair to both A and B. Every album (no matter the artist) has a unique set of strengths and weaknesses. Comparing...
