Think about it, even in the 90's his vocals were a big point of contention..... We're talking like 23 years later now... It's only natural that he's lost the howl, the rasp, the screech... Now we're simply left with the "whine" and he uses the vibrato to overcompensate.
even if that's the best he can sing, which i don't think is true, the recording itself sounds like shit. he absolutely could have added effects to make it not sound as shitty, or just used a better recording procedure. it sounds beyond amateurish. since he didn't even do that, it follows that he likes the way it sounds
