Don't be negative!

I actually liked the voice, it has a certain "un-manufactured" style which I think can sound excellent matched with the right songs - though it does need to be the right songs with a more gritty down to earth arrangement.

Have you never heard of Badly Drawn Boy? There is a songwriter who has done pretty well for himself despite having a voice that is very unremarkable. As I said earlier, this track does remind me in some ways of Badly Drawn Boy.
