  • I’ll say right now that although I like the song itself, I’m not a huge fan of the studio version and would certainly recommend a live version over the studio version
  • Throughout this entire debut record Malakian has impressed me with his vocal performances, but unfortunately I cannot say that about Chemicals
  • The verses are less robotic, but the problem with the verses is that Malakian chooses just a strange delivery for some of the lines, something he doesn’t really do live, and this certainly takes away from my enjoyment of the track
  • I have to say that when I heard the live version of this song I was pretty impressed and enjoyed the song quite a bit, since I heard all of these songs live before the studio version, but I was pretty disappointed with the studio version

      Chemicals is a track by Scars On Broadway which is on their self-titled debut record. I’ll say right now that although I like the song itself, I’m not a huge fan of the studio version and would certainly recommend a live version over the studio version.

      Throughout this entire debut record Malakian has impressed me with his vocal performances, but unfortunately I cannot say that about Chemicals.

      Whereas live the lyrics to this song flow extremely well and


      Malakian has a lot of natural character singing them, on the studio version they sound very awkward and I just can’t stand some of his deliveries throughout this entire song.

      If I had to make a brief comparison, I would say that the live version has a lot of character and energy while the studio version has a robotic and mechanical feel.

      I also do not simply mean that the pre-chorus of this song sounds robotic, which is ...


      • obviously what the band was going for and I actually don’t even mind that much, even the chorus of this song sounds extremely mechanical to me and I really don’t hear all that much character in Malakian’s voice.

        The verses are less robotic, but the problem with the verses is that Malakian chooses just a strange delivery for some of the lines, something he doesn’t really do live, and this certainly takes away from my enjoyment of the

        track.

        I have to say that when I heard the live version of this song I was pretty impressed and enjoyed the song quite a bit, since I heard all of these songs live before the studio version, but I was pretty disappointed with the studio version.

        I’m saying this to stress the point that the song itself really isn’t bad at all and it’s a pretty enjoyable track, but the studio version simply cannot stand up to the live version.
