what is the downside of this tag? this should be an example for everyone. tags don't just have to be genres, be creative with them! it makes it a lot easier to listen to a station without all the songs sounding the same. Ami Os, if you think there isn't a substantial difference between female and male vocalists, you may wanna get your ears checked.
@brainhost: I disagree. Female vocals stand out in a lot of styles of music and are what make them unique. Its not like all female vocals are in pop music. Thats the only problem I have with this is that top artists are mostly pop. The better tags are the ones that are "female fronted ___". It does make a difference.
What a dumb tag... So should it be tagged that we have a male or electronic vocalist two? Style is defined by the genre and messages or visions behind the music (even if they're just "to entertain") and not by the gender of the vocalist. The sound of it's voice is important, but not necasserily determined by the gender of the vocalist (see Chiodus).
