here's my critiques; i'm not revealing my vote this time
1. sort of a nice voice, kinda nasal or something
2. very quiet, would have been better louder
3. nice job, i like the lower voice better tho
4. never heard the song, it sounds rushed to me for some reason
5. very off hun, you're speaking more than singing and very off key : (
6. i like the layering of your vocals, not bad!
7. the song (background) is a bit quiet but nice job.
8. the vocals are a bit warbled or something, not sure if that was on purpose, maybe a bit loud :-/ not a bad voice but you need to pull back a bit from the mic
9. acapella for once! not bad voice hun, good timing without music. a little too much "jessica simpson" at the end of your words for me :-p
10. the echo (layering?) seems a bit much this song, but you did a good job
11. another song i don't know. for some reason you sound a bit flat on some notes, i'm not sure if it sounds like that in the song tho.
12. concentrate on not sounding exactly like Amy and just sing the notes (not intended to be mean!!! we all love Amy but when you try to sing just like whoever sings the song it comes out weird to me). i can hear it when you say "you would be here wiiiiith me" in 'with'. but you can definately sing this song better than i could, i can't hold those notes all the way thru sometimes!!
13. i like the notes in the beginning! you have a very pretty voice and nice job with the vocals behind you.
14. oh my god, i haven't heard this song since "the snowman" movie, that silent one where the snowman tries on the dad's tie and they fly!!!! wow. nice job hun!!!
15. eh, something about this just doesnt' work for me. not sure what it is.
16. another one i don't know. sounds pretty good
17. and another...... a little breathy on the mic and a tad rushed but not bad
18. another..lol.... your voice is very clear! i like it
19. i < 3 flyleaf!!! but i don't think your voice works with this one a bit off key and strained.
20. nice choice! i don't know the song but you sound good singing it
21. oooh foreign language! not bad! some notes are questionable but pretty good overall

I'm gonna give a full review of this week's trax cos it's the final one.
1 - You have a nice voice. It sounds a bit nasal but it's pretty. The timing is a bit off but still it's a very pleasant listen.
2 - It's soooo quiet i could barely hear it. Try to at least if you can't shout more raise your mike's sensitivity.
3 - Ooooh! An LC song! I love this one! I preferred the lower vocals at the beginning. Your voices don't match at parts of the chorus but at some other parts this is a really awesome song! Kudos! This is one of my favs!
4 - This is a nice song. But you sing it a bit draggy but that's drowned out cos your voice seems awesome. You should shout a bit more.
5 - There's this beep that kinda puts me off at the beginning. And you're very off key. You're more talking than singing. Sorry but I don't like this entry.
6 - The layering gives a nice choir-ish feel. The high notes seem a bit strained but hey they're very difficult notes to hit so kudos at at least hitting them
7 - You sound like you have a bad cold here. And you have some trouble singing high notes. And I could actually here a bit of the guitar in the background I would raise the volume for that a bit more.
8 - Wow that's loud. And your voice is soooooo powerful i like it. But not for this song. I'd think of a more soulful quiet approach to this song. And the vocals are really sounding
9 - Kinda nice. It's a good acapella. But the end of your words give a bit of a strange feel.
10 - The echo sounds a bit extra. You should try to lower the volume of the backing vocals cos they were overpowering the parts that amy sang.
11 - Sounds like a sweet song. I'd raise your voice a bit. but overall it's nice
12 - Try to hit the notes well. You sound like your straining your voice. Don't! It sounds like it would be good if you didn't.
13 - Nice vocals in the beginning. Nice voice. A fav! Kudos!
14 - Omg! Nightwish! I <3 this song. You should try a more operatic approach but your version is awesome! Kudos!
15 - The 'Me' in the beginning sounds strained. It didn't really work with the song. But good job on holding the 'mind' part. I never manage. The nagey voice doesn't work with this song well except at some parts. But you have a nice voice
16 - I don't really like the 'mama' at the beginning sounds somewhat off key but then again i never heard this song so i dunno what the key is.
17 - This sounds very nice. you need a pop filter and you need to back off from the mike. Favourite
18 - Nice voice. The song sounds nice. I like this one.
19 - I love this song. But your voice doesn't really work for it. I'd think you were more of a nightwish voice.
20 - I like this song. Is that you playing the guitar? It's awesome! Favourited.
21 - OK so I'm gonna compliment and nag at myself in this one. (I sent Will in)
So speaking as a third-party outsider simply looking at a karaoke song:
OMG I LOVE AYUMI HAMASAKI! SHE PWNS!! I like this song. But back to your voice. It sounds nice especially nice towards the end. The chorus is awesome once you get yourself into it. The verses however some notes were too low for you. But hey nice try! Favourite.
OK phew after listening to all that My vote is...Between 3, 20, 21 and 17

I'm at work at the moment so you'll all have to wait till later to get my vote. Though one thing I will mention now is, why do alot of you hide your voice in effects? I'm a little disapointed. There were some entries that I thought were fantastic though. Some of the voices are definitely high up there!
Well done to all of you that entered! It's good to see so many entries.

Tough, TOUGH choice this week for me between #1 and #2. VERY tough. Both were VERY very good, but in the end I felt that #1 had the stronger voice, VERY good vibrato, I'm jealous.
I think I know who you are now, I remember you from before. Great job.
#2, you did a very excellent job, you almost had my vote. Great track to choose! I feel it suited your voice very well. Though, it was a little quiet. =/
Good luck to all other entries, (most) were great!

I have to go to work in a few but I've had a chance to listen to 1/2 the tracks thus far.
I have one comment to make about some of the comments here. Nasal, naggy vocals.. Isn't there a nicer way to put that? I'm all for constructive criticism but when a person thinks nasal Willie Nelson tends to come to mind.
First off a soprano voice that is recorded on crappy equipment tends to come off a little more like minnie mouse, naggy and nasal more than one would hope. That is why when someone has the benefit of a studio edit and or good mics the tones are richer, fuller, less sharp and more balanced( I asked someone who does studio editing for a living so I know what I am talking about here, lol).
Being a soprano myself, I have noticed this especially when I record stuff.I hate the way I sound on these entries quite frankly. I was having a fit as to why I tend to sound so squeaky( in some places) recorded when live all the dynamics are present in my pitch. The tones get completely lost it seems and comes across almost annoying,drives me totally nuts because I am a complete perfectionist with my vocals most of the time.
If this is frustrating me so much, I would imagine it is a problem for other sopranos as well so I would like to let you all know I am attempting to imagine what your voices are like live.Soprano or otherwise..
You can hear if a person has a raw talent on these recordings. There are those that are completley monotone and without flavor so they probably wouldn't be a lot better live. Some people no matter how much they love to sing simply aren't singers.However, there are about 5 tracks this round that you can just tell the voices are there, they have power or at least tone and are full of interest. Even with the less than stellar recordings.
I gots to go but later on I will vote.

2 - the sounds kinda small,but i love your voice(kinda like Amy's voice),if you sing it louder,maybe it'll better.
3 - I'm not a LC fan,but i like this song and u did the good job of it. i think if your voice little bit lower,maybe will fit the song.
4 - your voice is tooo quiet,i can hardly to hear it,but you have a good voice,just sing it little bit louder, that would be better.
