Funny, I actually think that Karen's voice is one of my all-time favorites in non-operatic music. I love Hope Sandoval's voice, too, but for me Karen is on another level. It's just as good live as it is in the studio, too.
One thing I will say for OtR, though, is that for me they're very much a song-by-song band, as opposed to a whole-album band. The one exception to this, for me, is Good Dog Bad Dog--I think I love every song on that record--but most of the rest of their catalog is a cherry-picking exercise for me.
