This isn't some pop band. You won't find any auto-tuning here.

That said, my favourite part of that video clip is him waving at the beginning. :D That's nothing to say of the sheer epicness of the Wheel of Time choir, and the clip at the end where he goes all out.

Re: If trying to introduce someone to the Bards....

It honestly depends on the kind of person you're wanting to share music with. For example, having a pure metal-like CD will turn someone completely off if they're not into metal. But! Including BG's acoustic songs, and slowly building to a more heavier tone will most likely be right in their alley.
