I guess I was afraid Rob would sound like every other actor trying to sound like a musician. But I was very pleasantly surprised and the song has grown on me ever since. He really does play guitar quite well and I love the simplicity of the melody, the stripped-down sound, and all the emotion conveyed by Rob through his singing. As you mentioned, a little clearer diction would be nice, but it's almost like Rob just sings for himself and his enjoyment and he doesn't really care if others choose to listen to him.
I too love the emotion of the songs by Rob. The first time I listened to both of his songs for the movie, I was struck by how, even in not being able to understand the words, the feeling shone through. I think both songs provided wonderful moments on the soundtrack downloaded from iTunes. The soundtrack as whole was an experience of different feelings and emotions. Even before the movie, I felt like I was going on a beautifully complex journey.
On a related side note, I am looking for contributors for a Twilight related music site. Check out the link in my signature.
