I can see the boxset on the end of my shelf, it bugs me that I never finished it. Just need to knuckle down and get it done. I'm pretty sure I will.

At the risk of saying the opposite of something controversial in a "post something controversial thread": it's also possible it's not for you? Obs I love it, but it has it's own particular vibe, and not everyone vibrates on the same wavelength (well, except for me and Tim J ?). Seems hard to recommend something that someone feels like they need to "push through" ya know? Should be fun not painful. . .

Though, if you DID want to push through, here's my recommended approach: Set aside a couple of weekends, an 1/8th, lock yourself in a dark room, and blaze through. This is particularly helpful (IMOP) in Season 2 b/c binging it all at once helps even out some of "searching" the show seems to do in the latter half after a particular mid-season reveal I won't mention here. Plus, it puts you in the right head state for the last episode which is so wonderfully WEIRD and Lynch that being a little liminal probably doesn't hurt. 

If you make it that far, come back and we'll talk about how to approach Season 3 ?

Whaaaaaaaatttttt. In what sense though? Maybe Martin gore is a better singer but surely Dave Gahan’s voice wins. 

Martin Gore has exceptional control, a unique vibratto, perfect pitch, and really connects with whatever he's singing on an emotional level (or at least sounds like he does).  Gahan has a little bit less of all those things, though is still a remarkable vocalist.  He just happens to be in a band with that one in a mil person who's even better.  Kind of crazy to think about.  He must be pretty humble to let go of the reigns for lead vocal duty.  He clearly could be doing it all (vocals in addition to songwriting).

... Gore's voice is too smooth for the grittier deliveries tho... that's the only area where he really needs Gahan to step in.  What does Gahan do when Martin sings lead, anyway?  Always wondered that.  Martin sings lead on like half of that Black Celebration album.

The way Gahan's voice consistently breaks in the chorus of Strangelove is a good example of the cool thing his voice does that Gore's doesn't.  But in every other way Gore's the better singer.

Controversial thing: I think roast meat of any kind is crap, unless it's covered in sauce/spice of of some kind - and not just some thin layer of brown sugar that gets absorbed by less than 2mm of animal flesh, nor gravy.  Roast ham, roast turkey, roast beef, roast chicken - all crap in and of themselves.  Those animals died for nothing.  Put it in a sandwich and maybe it'll become passable.

Amidst all the controversy surrounding South Park getting banned in China this month, as well as Blizzard's banning of a pro-Hong Kong player blowing up in their faces, I now find myself having the hotts for Mei from Overwatch, despite having never played the game. But she got those thick-framed glasses and just the right amount of thicc...mmm.

I find that their voices compliment each other's in a composition, but I can't stand Gore's vibrato. It sounds very forced. Like he's literally forcing air through his throat at a varying rate instead of wavering the pitch.
