I actually used to love his voice. I didn't listen to DYKWYA for a few years, and when re-listening, his voice was sort of hard to take. It didn't make the album unlistenable, it's far too good for that, but my love for it definitely diminished a little.
Joy Division (my avatar is from "Control", as well).
Hmmmm, I felt the other way.
That's what I'd figured, being the original.
