Top 25 Singer, #23 - Robert Smith

#23 - Robert Smith

Rolling Stone refers to Robert Smith's singing style as a, "pale vocal whine." They forgot to put 'that's still better than almost every other singer on the planet' after the word whine, but whatever. Pitchfork's Mark Richardson in his review of Crystal Castles new song 'Not In Love,' a Platinum Blonde cover which features vocals from Smith, gave a more appropriate critique of The Cure frontman's abilities. Richardson's wrote that Smith's vocals can strike, "a brilliant balance between old and new, between the pull of nostalgia and the reality that our entire lives are actually happening right here this very second." Can your voice do that? Doubt it...
