Adam, you're very talented! You sound as close to Freddie Mercury as almost anyone I've heard. The only person who might be better than you is George Michael but you are definitely better than most professionals who has attempted to sing Queen songs!

I hope to hear more from you!

Good job!

Good singing, but why the weird effect or whatever on it?

Great cover. But have you used autotune a lot? Sounds like it.

Great work anyway. Congratulations

Very good!!
Although the voice sounds so robot-like... artificial.

Richard, any chance that my version of Someday one day will be on the website soon?

I like it very much, the only think i don't like is that everything besides guitar and vocals are just a simple miditrack

True, but many people can't help that.

It might be a nice idea for people to work together on these things to get the best possible results.

That is so true Farlander. Take advantege of all skills and knowledge on the board. Thats what a band is really. Even Brian,Roger and Freddie needed help from each other. Listen to a Freddie solo. Instrumentally it aint very good..

There are 35 karaoke mixes available plus more that could be used from 'The Eye'. Doesn't apply in this case since there isn't one for KQ, but just wanted to remind people of that :)

That voice...ughhh. I too, think it's just too artificial sounding. I like the guitar solo bit and most of it after that. But everything running up to the solo...I dunno, just sounds off.
And again, I have to remark that I don't think his vocal style suits. Buggle in robotic mode?! And I suppose the basic midi track doesn't help. Otherwise, some nice guitar bits here and there. But even they sound strangely buzzy.

Peace,
Adam.

Hmm...you haven't heard many other people then?

But have you used autotune a lot? Sounds like it.


So, someone else has thought the same.

Vocally I like it. Instrumentally not so much. I mean, it`s not bad, but the vocal is much better, and I think it`s better if they`re both excellent instead of one ex and one "just" very good.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

I think it's great. I really don't understand the acid criticism by some people here. These are just fan recordings by people who do it for fun and are kind enough to share their recordings with us. I don't expect that all fan songs are received with noncritical applause but it seems that some people cannot apprecitae the efforts of others. This is very sad because we lose the contribution by fans who are not willing to expose their stuff to such vitriolic comments.

Well. The line between being honest and impolite is very narrow sometimes. But in this case I think its alright to say what you mean. If everybody cheered for every fanrecording that was made, I think it wouldnt count for much. Every recording has something good to it(usually). If you mention that first you can take the negatives afterwords.

Of course it's allright to criticise the songs. But saying nothing but "Kind of sounds like Wierd Al singing" is not criticising, it's just mean. You are right that it would not count for much if the songs were all praised but there is a difference between criticising in order to help or dissing in order to hurt. And we all know that the songs are made by amateurs, that should be taken into account as Phil pointed out.

I agree with Barb, for some reason most people forget that these guys aren't professionals
