Well, i don't consider technical skill to be too much of an important factor in quality, let alone uniqueness... It dosen't take skill to be unique, take The Shaggs for example, without a doubt the worst band of all time, horrible musicians, but they were still quite unique, no one sounds like them, in fact Frank Zappa (a technical genius, no doubt) was not only a fan but he also attempted to immitate their sound, however he could not, the music was simple but so out there and bizzare that their sound couldn't be copied.... Though that's probably a good thing.

I'm nagging, back on topic, i think what constitutes good vocals/guitars/bass/drums/etc depends on the context of the song... For example, from a objective technical standpoint Tom Waits may be one of the worst singers in the world, but as far as i'm concerned he is one of the best.... Imagine if Steve Perry sang all the songs on Rain Dogs. O_O

I just scared myself.

I draw a line between technical and good, you can have one without the other... But of course both ain't bad either.

What about Death From Above 1979? They have no guitar just bass and drums.

Or Sunn O)))? They have barely any lyrics (like 20 words for a whole CD).

Merzbow has no guitar (that I know of). And Les Claypool has some of the wierdest vocals and most consider them to be bad.



I think that unique-ness is based on how much the members in the band let their own personalities show though their playing.

I like Claypools vocals, though few realise that they were inspired by one of The Residents.

Claypools vocals are different for sure but they have a ring to them. Them + his bass style=one of the closest things to perfection on earth.

What about the Donnas? They are the female version of AC/DC. They're unique because of their sound.The old vintage electric with the girl's point of view.

I tell you what doesn't make you original.
Dressing up like a clown, and rapping like an idiot about chopping people up with a hatchet.

Check out Three Inches Of Blood's style of string picking. And then the lead singers voice.

Well, it would be original if a million people didn't do it.

But original dosen't always = good... And good is really subjective, i really don't think there is anything objective about good music at all.

Though originality is something i look for in a lot of bands, bands who lack originality can make up for it with creativity and songwriting.
