You do know Singer was a pretty big part of the new team, don't you? As producer and story credits?
He did one work pass on the script then stepped back into the producer role, where his influence on the actual film was limited (thankfully). The project was then given over to less stuffy creatives who gave us the final version.
We have seen what happens when Singer isn't involved with the X-Men films: The Last Stand and Wolverine.
First Class feels so much more in synch with the Singer-films and his style that, I at least, had the feeling he directed it.
