    I don't see it quite that way, but it's a matter of words. I would say his sound is terrific, so he's unique in that regard. But I find his sound more "neutral" than Steven Mead's, for example. If I had to choose between the 2 for a USA professorship I would choose David's sound. He has a British tone, but he has a more universal style to my ears, so he's quite compatible with our American surroundings.

    Sorry Dave - I only meant that his sound is so original it is unique - and thus is distinct. I agree that I like it more than Steven Mead's but that is also like choosing between two fine dishes at a 3 star Michelin restaurant - not between that restaurant and McDonalds
