I'm not sure if you can blame everything on the American way of life, but the United States are big. So, if you have a lot of people there, the percentage of stupid people is bound to be higher.
A good voice isn't so important. It's more important to sound really unique.
I like that band Get Hustle. They're cool live. I haven't heard their records, though.

We're not on a desperate mission to write chart compatible stuff.
If a voice is just too nice, without an edge, it kinda all flows by. You forget it. You don't listen to the lyrics.
Almost every band has somebody who's the main songwriter and who has a vision, a very clear idea of how a song should be.

We're probably a couple of freaks who've created their own little universe, are living in our own little world and that's the only place where we can survive.
I don't even think my voice is really good.
There's no point that an album should sound like a watered down version of another album.
