Wuau... I love this cover... the only thing I dont like, is AricĀ“s voice... he sings really great, and I have Downloaded a lot of his covers, but he do some kind of "vibratto" on his voice, and I really hate that... but everything else on his singing is beautifull... take that as one Constructive opinion... the instrumentation is really stunning... I love the guitar... the back vocals are really good too...

Congratulations to M.A.D for the cover...

Nice track, this. The guitars are really nice throughout. Really like the solo part. Only thing was when the breakout bit started, the guitars were a little hidden at that bit. Shame, cause what I could hear (albeit low in the mix) was really nice.

Wondered where the bass was when the song first kicked in. Was a bit strange cause when the "It's Late" bit came in, I couldn't really hear any bass. Then when things settled down, I could hear it fine. Bit too high for a second at 2:33.

Thought the drums were nice and consistent. Nicely roomy sounding. Only bit that was a shame would be the breakout bit cause it played the same pattern over and over. I kept hoping a different cymbal would get hit!

Didn't like how dry the vocal was throughout. I guess I would also echo Victor's comment on Aric's vibrato/voice. Nice backing harmonies. Some flat notes (0:50secs) and break notes on the lead vocal (5:25).

Overall, the track is excellent, but seems a bit thin. Doesn't have much low-end. Another great cover for the Stage of Champions!

Adam.

Pretty good, except the lead vocal was out of tune way too often.
