Ed, again, makes a very salient point: I can handle Karen's high notes, that is not what truly bothers me regards "Now." I love the solo album and it is replete with great "highs." It is simply that the "highs" (high notes) on the solo album songs do not exhibit weakness in the lead vocal, whereas the vocals--high or low--in the song "Now" are noticeably weak. It would be interesting to hear the song without instruments or choir, only Karen's vocals. In other words, I would like to hear what they heard in the studio, before the song was completed.
