Didn't see the January post when I put this up. These reviews are new, however.

Cute cover ... but lacks the energy of the original.

Same feeling here. Not bad, but most of what it did to me was to remind meĀ of the power of Freddie's vocal...

Cheers,

Very sexy cover. Very true to the original, I liked it. And of course Freddie's vocal was waaay more powerfull. I don't think you should try to compare when making a cover.
