However, Stevie consistently has volume (that's something) and is pretty predictable in her delivery. That doesn't mean I always like what I'm hearing from her.
Lindsey also has volume but he hasn't sung terrifically live in a long, long time. Much of the magic of his dry tenor has faded.
Christine live is a dice throw. Sometimes she sounds great, as she did on Little Lies from the Musicares event. Other times--egads.
I have only seen FM or Stevie solo perform since the late 2000s...2009, 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2016. I think Stevie sounded the best in 2014 and 2016. I think the one song she should retire is If Anyone Falls. It sounds terrible live.
I think the sound at the venue plays a major role too. I saw Christine and Lindsey at the Beacon last year. Christine was very difficult to understand. The two people I was with do not know her songs as well as I do and they could not understand a lot of her lyrics.
