Yeah these teenage Ville obsessed girls know a lot about it....
Whether these people are making jokes or they are tone deaf or they comapred him to even worse singers. Great rock singers and Ville Valo? Well that must be really serious forum lol. Great rock singers are not off key on the concerts

His huge range is a well documented fact, and that his voice is particularly beautiful is widely accepted.
If that makes a great singer for you -- all right.
Since most people here listen to bootlegs a lot, you should be able to find songs and gigs where he sounds like shit as well as ones where he sounds great.

But whatever, what starts to bother me even more is that people keep blaming 'Ville obsessed teenage girls' for everything.
They're not the root of all evil, they're not even the root of all HIM-related problems you see.
I can agree that they're writing incredibly annoying YouTube comments, though xD

His vocal range is the same as the other singers, the only difference is that Ville can sing well in closer range, the rest is terrible mostly when live..
Great singer is Steve Perry, Ville is amateur when compared to Perry.. These amateur forums based on software range and tune detection,its silly to even take it serioisly.
Well known fact is that he is not the Great singer,average yes. What makes him génius is his charisma,talent at so gwriting,multiinstrumentalism and style.

I didn't say that he is The Greatest Singer. I said that his range is huge, and it is. Of course there are singers with the same and/or bigger range, but that doesn't change the fact that it is definitely more than average.
There are about 5 octaves documented for Ville. According to musicologist Fischer, the range of professional singers covers 2.5 to over 3 octaves. If Ville's not capable of singing each note in his range precisely live, that's a different issue.

Other than that I'm curious where you found the information that The Range Place is an amateur forum 'based on software range and tune detection' because I couldn't find that information on the page. I mostly read 'I hear this note as ...'

For me it's always been his songwriting that has made him exceptional not his singing. I've been to good HIM shows and bad ones but I always enjoy it however Helldone 2012 first night I was shocked at how poor he was.
HIM Shows- 14/03/2010  19/03/2010  28/12/2012  29/12/2012  30/12/2012  31/12/2012  26/04/2013  21/10/2013  27/10/2013  31/12/2013  31/12/2014  27/12/2015  30/12/2015  31/12/2015
Upcoming Shows- 16/12/2017  27/12/2017  31/12/2017

The range place is people that figure out ranges of singers. Most of them are singers as well. And Ville is capable of hitting those notes live. If you checked out that page that have a list of his range listed by notes during live songs. They much prefer live to studio.

Not to mention you exaggerate his missed notes. Yes, he has sounded like total shit before. I get that. But that doesn't make him a bad singer. Nobody is perfect every night, every note. Nobody.

I think we can all agree that smoking has ruined his voice over the years, Listen back to their early 1998 stuff live and he sounds awesome. He doesnt sound bad live but songs like buried alive by love (where he screams) he sounds like he is in pain.

I prefer his voice on the Venus Doom album. Ville's voice during the early HIM sounded more "macho" (I don't know how to explain it). Like he was trying too hard. Not bashing though.
