If you can think of Geddy Lee singing more streamlined rock and ballads with 100lbs of vibrato on his voice, that is how Pavlov's Dog sounds.
Which is not the nightmare you may think: true, the singers voice is pungent and jarring--you'll never mistake him for anyone, not even Geddy Lee--but this music is soaked in mellotron, an instrument used in art rock to sound like strings before synthesizers could do this job.
This is extremely well-written, full with a balanced sound quality. That is enough to buffer the singers voice. If you have a hard time listening at first, you'll find the vocals will assimilate well into the huge production of the music.
Only in the 1970s could this happen, but hearing it now is worth the effort
