yea the sounds like is killing me too
thinking of a band frontman other than an individual artist
for now I'm just calling it beautiful
not 1 track could I say no to
2 for 3 with me mate

lead track
strings were sweet enough then at 45 seconds I was hooked

^^Could be barking up the totally wrong tree, but to me, his vocal timbre is very similar to that of Neil Diamond - and in terms of intonation, I'd bet he's listened to a lot of Bowie.

Fairly impressive range Mr Fratelli has - I had thought of Eddie Vedder or Mark Lanegan, initially, but that’s probably just because they’re also baritones – so is Michael Bublé (since there's a touch of the crooner). 

Yep – nice album – one of those that’ll probably grow on me.

LOL, I never contemplated any of those artists you mentioned Ruby,
but,
I could imagine Diamond, Vedder and Lanegan singing some of these songs.

im still searching for my 'sounds like' though and its been annoying me for the last eleven months!
