there is no doubt that this fellow is a hottie who can sing, and i 
may be in love with him... but I have almost worn out the speakers 
listening to him and the consensus of opinion between my right and 
left ears is that he is not a TENOR. So i asked my internal beast, 
what about that baritonal quality in Caruso, you don't seem to mind 
THAT! and the beast said, yeah but nobody actually accused Caruso of 
being  baritone, or handed him libretti full of baritone roles. So 
then I asked Roger if this guy sounded like a tenor and he said no. 
Said he had oh that deeper colouring of a baritone.
