Fiddling around with Audacity, if you pitch up Kirk Thornton's Saix voice a little bit, he makes a pretty decent Shadow. Well, better than what he does right now at least.

Personally, I think David is the best, even though I grew up with Jason. I still like the latter a lot, but the former just had something which makes him slightly superior.

Jason was really good here, honestly. As much as I like Kirk, he's not a good Shadow. He sounds downright awful in Sonic Boom (TV).

David Humphrey. He didn't sound whispery, cold and silent.

oh, Jason by a freaking landslide. David was ok, too hammy for my taste, and you will never hear me defend Kirk.

I think Jason was the best because he sounded the best for shadow personality. But I'd MUCH rather have them bring back David than use Kirk.... God Kirk LEARN TO VOICE SHADOW!! "You got this Sonic!" ow my ears they burn!! No offense...

I miss David Humphrey, the guy had such a unique performance back when Shadow was actually cool. Griffith started out pretty bad, though he did get better later on.
