I was recently reading something online and found this sentence:
The soundtrack, not the vocals, are good.
To me it seems that instead of are good, it should say is good, since the subject of the sentence is the soundtrack (Which is singular). However, now when I look at the sentence again with the is, it just doesn't seem right. (Since the is does not seem to match the plural vocals)
Which word is correct in this context? is or are?
