Just listened to "morning has broken" by Cat Stevens from the Best of Cat Stevens. The timbre in his voice will bring on gooseflesh!

I had a college roommate who loved Cat Stevens. That voice is among the worst I've ever heard. Wretched. No depth. No nuance. Like too many pop singers, he cannot sing. Why he became so popular was a mystery. Your thread title is extremely misleading. Most GLORIOUS male voice? Oh, Enrico Caruso, WIndgassen, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Christof, and several dozen more opera singers. Stevens is a zero compared to them. Jeez, even country singers Clay Walker, George Strait are better.
One of the saddest commentaries on how low American cultural standards have sunk is that people like Cat Stevens are considered great, when they don't even deserve to mentioned alongside names like Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, and others of that generation. True musicians all. Can you tell I don't like Cat Stevens, or whatever his new Muslim name is...
