    Combination is best.
    All of either would get tiresome.

    It’s hard not to say both. I don’t think of 311 as only one of them, although I like when each gets their own song or dominates a song from time to time (overall they need more SA nowadays but back in the day it was fairly balanced). I do prefer Nick to SA, especially ‘95-‘99 Nick. But I don’t see 311 without SA.

    When they rapidly go back and forth...damn, that’s the shit. Like in Can’t Fade Me, or Great Divide. They work so well when they do that.

    Both, depending on how they're using their respective voices.

    Nick before 2003 knew his range. SA before 2005 knew his limits as well. SA seems to have come back to earth, whereas Nick thinks he's God's gift to ears everywhere.

    I want like 2/3rds Nick and 1/3rd SA. Though in recent albums it's more like 90% Nick. Which is too bad. Nick generally leading but SA having some songs each album where's he's the lead thrown in there from time to time is ideal.

    I prefer when they sing together. Switching off and especially when they do a harmony on the chorus of a song. But in general I like SA the most.

    I was just thinking about it earlier and my most of my favorite bands I've had have 2 singers. And I usually like the one I don't hear as much. That figures.

    I want Transistor era SA to take care of high-range singing. Nick can do the soring, lung-heavy vocals. And they can go back and forth with rapping. But please for the love of god, Nick, stop singing softly through your nose. And SA, quit trying to sound aggressive or otherwise overly earnest with your voice. You both sound so fucking out of place when you do that.

    Exactly. Kind of like when Hex lets SA do both verses in Thank Your Lucky Stars. I’d love to hear them switch some of those things around.
