I have to admit, I have an aversion to clean cuts. It's not hard and fast, but from time to time I notice myself backing away from objectivity. If a singer is too clean cut, I may not give him an entirely fair shake. Like this guy, Nick Waterhouse. He's a perfectly fine r&b singer, old school in practice, totally clean cut 60s Ivy League in appearance, not a hair out of place. I really dig his music, and by extension his mission to keep this type of music alive. I just wish he'd lose the comb at some point.
