Yes, it sounds like their voices have some kind of effect over it, except Paul, but I don't really like it.
And I don't think they would use the effect to make it sound better.

either way , it sucks.. It sounds so fake and unnatural. I wouldnt think they would turn into people who puts vocal tuning effects on.

The effect you hear is called Phasing and it's not used to fix vocals with. The effect that does that is called Auto-Tune. And it sounds totally different.

Along with a slight phase, I certainly hear flange in the effect.

I forgot to mention that the entire song was convered in cheese. Not a fan of that song. They need to quit the politics and get to rockin'. I don't mean any disrespect to the message and or the meaning because it's very well respected. But Bono and Bob Geldof have that market cornered. Sorry for going off on the tangent.

I thought the 'effect' on the vocal was simply the poor quality of the mp3 file as it does it all over the drums too...

Why don't you email Brian and tell him that? I'd love to see his response. ;-)

I'd say the used a kind of chorus effect, plus some melodyine editing, perhaps.
IMHO it would have been much better to have their voices in a pure sound, adding perhaps a slight delay+reverb.

No thanks. He'll probably post something on this website about how much of an asshole I am or something. :)

It's a phase on the vocals. MP3's really can't do a song justice. Everything is so compressed that it tends to loose some quality to it. I'm pretty sure they're recording on all digital equipment and digital can sound a bit cold. There's no warmth like there is with 2" tape.

SO what is this phasing all about? What does it?

It's on the new single, it's an effect that adds a 'warbaly' sound to an instrument, vocal or the entire track. Queen are known for doing this. It was done on "Leaving Home Ain't Easy", "Teo Torriatte", "Invisable Man" and several other songs throughout their career. This should not be confused with Brian's fOXX phaser pedal or his chorus pedals.

Happy Birthday, Barbie!

Thank you guys!!
I've only heard "Invisible man", hmmm now i'm listening too... Yeah i hear some kind of "warbling".
My favourite place in this song is "ha, ha, ha, hello, ha, ha, ha, hello..". I find it interesting, ehh donnow how to explain, th melody is quite complicated, at least i find it such.
Thank you for greetings!!! Eh, i'm not a teenager anymoreXD
