Fair play to Ian Brown though, to steal a living as a musician with absolute no vocal talent whatsoever, he's lucky studio's have the technology to make anyone sound good. The fact he can actually write good lyrics is also a saving factor.
He has been getting slated for his singing since he started his solo career, I am actually a big fan of him solo it's about more than just voice! It's personality, charisma and much more! not everyone likes clean cut singing voices some of the best artists ever couldn't sing for a toffee! Bob Dylan, Tom waits and many more!
