Emerson cited weak vocals as one of the reasons he left the band.
True, Jackson is an "acquired" taste, but Emerson's new vocalist, Greg Lake, is adequate at best...as with all the Crimson vocalists.
Lake's voice was the best Crimson ever got, all the rest were adequate if that. Emerson knew what he was doing with Lake and is one of the reasons why they became huge. Without Lake as a decent vocalist I doubt they would have achieved the megastardom they did.
