Does anyone else think the lead voice on this sounds like Robin The Frog of 'Halfway Down the Stairs' fame?

Robin The Frog? Not familiar with that.
But while i really like the song, I find the guys voice irritating. It is very airy & breathy, I think he's not a great singer.
i think in the hands of a really good singer, this would be brilliant. I am thinking of a voice like Bobbie Gentry.
But I can't get on with the guys voice
Nice song

I'm getting a bit fed up with it now. Time to ditch the overplay list I think and rest these tracks before people get sick of hearing them, which I think does the artists no favours at all.

I meant to say the guy's voice sounds like the actor who does the voice of Kermit the Frog's nephew Robin!

Jonathan Donahue of Mercury Rev is similarly thin-sounding.
