    Well, I think taking melodramatic out of it takes away the original intent of the record, but I understand it's hard to moderate.

    An accent is quantifiable -- an accent is an accent. What I find melodramatic and what you find melodramatic might differ. That's why I feel it can't be measured and should be removed -- how do we judge whether someone has said someone melodramatically or not?

    Hm. Not sure. I think melodramatic is definitely a certain style. Like saying something with a certain accent or that sort of thing.

    "Melodramatic" isn't exactly a quantifiable criteria -- how does the rest of the community feel about removing that from the title here?
