It's his whole aesthetic

The voice is a big part of it, but everything about him is just not for me. If the songs struck me as being particularly great than I could get over it. But the songwriting doesn't really capture my attention either. And his personality is really off-putting.
His solo songs kind of reminds me of really mediocre Stephen Duffy/Lilac Time outtakes for some reason. (they don't really have that much in common but that's just where my mind goes)
For a point of comparison I actually feel similarly about Bryan Ferry too, but I Roxy Music's songwriting is great and the other members of the band all rule so I learned to enjoy the vocals.
