When it comes down to it, the guy can sing.
These are enjoyable and suited to his voice.
Still a moron.

Don't misconstrue things. He's a great "singer" in terms of the fact that he can hit high notes and has that R&B flow to his voice. He's a horrible vocalist though. A vocalist knows how to structure their melodies to flow with the song and carry the listener places, giving the song some kind of semblance to a story or emotion. Craig has no flow, no construction. He just fits his vocals into random patterns to go over music and it carries you no where. He's an incredibly mediocre vocalist thats being carried by his pretty voice.

I agree with you, but I think you're over the top about it. The knock on Jonny has always been his structuring - he consistently shows little to no knowledge regarding songwriting/structuring, save for the last Emarosa album and Isles & Glaciers (who was all Vic anyway).
BUT.
His physical ability is simply off the charts. This isn't a guy who has a good voice, and could be great with some training - Jonny has absurd talent, and could be phenomenal and unmatched with half a brain and some dedication. So yeah, his voice obviously carries him past his inability to take himself seriously, but we're talking about a rare level of talent.

I completely agree with what you said, but you have to remember the individual we're talking about. Craig is so full of himself that he would never take into consideration that he doesn't know what he's doing, so he's perpetually going to be an incredibly mediocre vocalist thats basking in 16 year olds that just hear a pretty voice. I'm not sure I would use the word talent as when I was growing up in music class I was always taught talent is something you learn and ability is what you're born with. I.e, Craig was born with the ability to be an insane vocalist with some crazy control. But he completely lacks the talent to put any of that to proper use.
Yeah, we're just mincing words - I have no problem calling it "natural ability" or whatever - we both understand.
