Better vocalist: Tobias Sammet or Freddie Mercury
I was a huge Queen fan growing up, but after hearing Edguy and Avantasia, I'll say that Sammet does the impossible - he is a better vocalist than Mercury.

You're catching me home with a cold today so too much time on my hands.

I wasn't familiar with Edguy, but listening to the track below and comparing it to the Freddy track farther below, I don't hear him as being stronger than Mercury. Maybe it's the track (so post a better one) but I hear more range, more dynamics and more soul in Mercury's voice.

Heresy! I call for the immediate unseating of KC from his new role.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude.

Just because her eyes don't tear doesn't mean her heart doesn't cry. Just because she comes off strong doesn't mean there's nothing wrong.

Confused

No competition..... Freddie Mercury.

The other guy struggles on low ranges.

I feel so much, and yet I feel nothing.
I am a rock, I am the sky, the birds and the trees and everything beyond.
I am the wind, in the fields in which I roar. I am the water, in which I drown.

Never once have I been impressed with Freddie Mercury, aside from good voice control. Sorry guys, but I just don't like his music at all.

So many cats, so few good recipes.
