I saw you say something like this on twitter, and I'm intrigued. I get that there are other people that do what he does, sometimes better at it too, but I feel like Frank can still be appreciated for what he does.
Who does it better? Not saying your wrong, I just want to listen to them, haha.

I'm not saying anyone does it better, or worse. I guess I'm just saying that I don't see the appeal for what he does at all. I try so hard to like him every go-around, but nothing connects.
So basically you just don't like him?
Haha to be honest now I've said it I have no idea. Charlie Simpsons solo stuff is quite similar and that is such a great album that some may consider it better. But all the others that I'm thinking of are sort of the more mainstream, pop versions. The Amy MacDonalds, KT Tunstalls, Mumford and Sons to an extent, Of Monsters and Men. That sort of thing, but I don't feel any of them actually come close to Frank.
I'd definitely consider Charlie's album better than anything Frank's done with the possible exception of L,I&S but I'm a huge fanboy of that guy, been following him for over 10 years now, but I wouldn't say they're that similar. As for the rest I definitely don't think they do the same thing Frank does and they're definitely not as good imo.
