Nothing hooks me harder on a band than a good turn of phrase. I love good production but some solid bands have lyrics so bad that I can't listen to them without feeling uncomfortable.
So recommend me the best lyricists in your genre. Bluegrass, rap-metal, prog-punk, Russian opera, I don't care (though if it's a foreign group I'd love a link to some translation!). Vocalists who know how to enunciate are a plus, but I have a love for some pretty damn challenging singers, so even if your fave is practically unintelligible, if the words are good I'd love a listen.
