tired of these videos where he's just pretending to sing to an obviously prerecorded track.

Is that Kjartan Sveinsson on guitar?

But seriously, fuck everything about this video. I'm all for people covering music they like, performing it live or even putting their recorded versions on youtube, but the level of production that went into this video is just obnoxious, it's like this guy doesn't realize he didn't write the song. I mean that shot at 2:30, is that a joke? Because it should be.

I don't like the general tone of this voice. Or maybe that's just how it decided to make it sound when recording it.

Yeah he ain't got no technique.

I mean maybe I'm just saying that because I have a musical theater background in terms of technique but Tyler Carter is just way too much throat, swallows like every vowel sound, and holds a ridiculous amount of tension.

Pretty good, but as long as we are talking about clean vocalists doing covers it should be said that Johnny Craig did a better Timberlake cover.

Why did he alter the second verse? Apart from that, it was good, though I certainly prefer the original.

Tyler Carter can sing but I don't really wanna check out this cover. Issues is good but not great. Tyler was better on Number[s] by Woe, Is Me. His cover of "Someone Like You" is fucking great though.

He can sing, huh? Yeah, I suppose autotuned vocals do sound pretty pitch perfect. But it's not a testament to his ability.

any decent person covering a song would record a 1 shot video of them performing it. instead here we have a lip synched video with overindulgent, obnoxious shots like that one. dude clearly thinks he's the shit

Just listened to this. Guy over-sings it waaaay too much. I fucking hate it when people over-sing shit. Classic case of 'American Idol Syndrome', where the singer obviously has talent but stretches it to the point of pretentious obnoxiousness. Gosh, why can't people sing skilfully, making the most of a subtle nuance, rather than just trying to make each note as technically flashy as possible. Ugh

To the guy who said he doesn't hear autotune, I have no idea why you can't hear it. I can only guess you're used to hearing it in everything and assume that's just how a human voice can sound.

It's not.

obvious the guy can sing, I have no knowledge of proper technique, but he can sing

Same thing with Kellin Quinn. He can really sing, but it's too high pitched. But for high pitched vocalists he's one of the best.

lol this thread turned into knife fight quick. I enjoyed the cover but I will say I thought it came off a bit narcissistic also. It's kind of understandable considering the dude probably constantly has teen scene girls all over him and telling him he's awesome and it has probably gotten to his head.

He isn't particularly a bad singer. Is just, this comes off as just plain PRETENTIOUS. It comes off as if he's singing the song like it was written by Paul McCartney
