Hi folks ...
I was listening to a couple of Genesis Revisted live stuff recently and also bought Nad’s latest album, Regal Bastard.
I am still not quite sure how good or bad Nad is. Quite obviously the Genesis stuff is challenging - no wonder he sounds different on his own albums. But for the Genesis material (even the early Hackett stuff, like Icarus Ascending) his interpretation is sometimes good and sometimes some sort of out of focus. I tend to believe he doesn’t know how to sing the Genesis stuff from time to time and then he tries and changes etc.
Ray Wilson did Carpet Crawlers and he pretty much nailed it. Same with Kershaw and The Lamia.
So in a nutshell: do you think Nad was a good choice, is there something you’d like to hear him sing or is he not your cup of tea?
