is it really that big of a deal to people? i've only heard a few songs, but it doesn't not sound like him. songs sounded good, let's move on.
It's not the end of the world for me but it will be for a lot. Especially when you're starting to sound like Transit and modern day Saves the Day...both of which are horrendous.
It sucks that his voice is shot and that this is likely what Polar Bear Club will become. But that still doesn't mean they can't release some good material with cleaner vocals. For example, some of the The Redder The Better EP.
But having his voice shot also doesn't justify garbage like "Siouxsie Jeanne" and the majority of Death Chorus.
