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.

Dear anyone who thinks art is a competition: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS BETTER.

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

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

See here they are, the bruises, some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Confused

No competition..... Freddie Mercury.

The other guy struggles on low ranges.

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

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.

Just visiting.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
