Richard already posted it in the "news" section - how do you like Vinou's live rendition of "You Take My Breath Away" in the Stage Of Champions section?

Needless to say that I am amazed...

Listening to it now... WOW! The string section is a neat touch! This is great! By the way, Where is Vinou from?

I quite like it. But some of the string arrangement wasn't not to my personal taste. It sounded erratic and timing issues here and there. But I think it was a pretty brave version. Very nice in places. Gave me a warm kind of feeling.

Peace,
Adam.

Very good indeed IMO.

Certain bits of it sent a little tingle down my spine!

I like the way its not a carbon-copy of the Queen version, in terms of the vocals, and the strings section.

Very, very well done.

I like it.. the voice ranges from being partially harsh and raw.. but still has whole load of emotions and soft and kindness..

Edgy and softy.. and the echo.. great.
Maybe the composition with the cello's and strings needs some rearranging.

I could very well imagine to see vinou singing in musicals like WWRY.

Keep on rehersing and it might one day be so. :)

It's great, although i have to agree with Adam on the arrangement of the string section

In My opinion this YTMBA is SUPERB!Congratulations Vinou, this is a very good cover!I like the voice, the arrangement (not 100% perfect but very well organized), the feeling.

Excellent

This Stage of champions is a great surprise....!

Dreadful, i think i've just heard Freddie turning in his grave, shame on you for ruining one of the most beautiful songs ever written, some songs should never be tampered with, this is one of them.


Another time, maybe.

I seem to think the opposite of some of you.

I think the strings were very well arranged and a very interesting take on this song. But I found the vocals to be just not that good. Great quality recording, though.
