Yeah, it's pretty good. Good guitars as always. Agreed, a good vibe going on with this one. Very cool!

Just a small note Matt, way too much low-mid bassiness going on though. Gets very muddy. Shame cause the work on this one would sound excellent if it wasn't for that.

Well done, but no any personal music view of the song by Mr Hutchison, IMO, just 'straight' copy, nothing bad about it, but nothing interesting neither.

Not everyone wants to do these songs with a different slant, Serry. I've found plenty of times just wanting to rock out the same way Queen did it. I would hope that anyone doing these covers does it for themselves.

Yes, Adam, as I wrote - nothing bad about it, the guy made good work, but for me, just my own personal tastes, it's not that interesting for me, not my cup of tea - is this how you call it in England?

Discovering new in the old songs by remixing them, covering 'em in personal way brings some brilliant results sometimes, being not a musician myself, I can only hope for others to do that job :)

Thanks for the advice Adam. There is stuff within these that I know makes it not as nice as they could be(EQ's etc) but thats where your knowledge helps.
Serry...I take no offence from any comments. I am trying to replicate the songs as close as I can to the originals purely as an exercise in transcription,note finding and the practical part of trying to capture guitar notes and piano,harm vox etc.My piano abilities are limited and capturing those parts is like a patchwork quilt...... Sometimes I kinda like the results (initially) and then later I hear stuff I've done and cringe!! But, at the time, it was a great sense of achievement. So in a nut-shell...it's purely for my own indulgence.
