I feel guilty for agreeing with this...I listened to the album at work on the public stereo and all the time expected someone to flip off and turn the shit off I don't WANT to feel that way but I did. The long, nasal parts in the vocals are the worst for me...think In Person chorus. It's the total opposite to the barking of Strap It On. I kind of understand how the barking thing may now feel like a bad idea turned to recorded vocals for Page and feels his stuff nowadays is more "professional".
To us fans the barking thing is a bad idea turned to something genius and it fucking rocks
