I agree. I do wish there had been a touch more (just a teensy bit!) diction in "Let Me Sign", but I really do like the folsky, near-bluesy thing he's got going with his voice. And damn, the boy can play guitar. I'm impressed.
I bought the soundtrack about a week before I saw the movie (that's a first for me). I was kind of hesitant to listen to "Never Think". 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.
What a great way of explaining it!! When I heard that he had songs on the soundtrack, I wasn't expecting anything spectacular, and truth be told I didn't like the song when I first heard it cause his words weren't entirely clear...but then I really LISTENED to it, and you can hear the emotion in the melody and his lyrics...ahh it gives me goosebumps. It's like he sang/wrote the songs while embodying Edward and I love it. And I love how its almost like he sings for himself and is allowing us to listen instead of like some musicians who make stuff you're suppsosed to like.
