He's really good! The album seems to only be available in *edit*->Deutschland<-*edit* though.

I understand that he's foreign, but his singing/posturing is terribly awkward.

I'd rather see little kids play the blues:

Because instrumental music is a language that we all can understand, now.

Foreign?! Denmark?!

The lad's British, with an incredibly Scottish surname. Plus it's Germany that has been chosen as the first territory to market him, not Denmark.

I'll grant that he's got a pure sounding voice, but as Adam says, the auto-tune is far too evident here.


Gullibility and credulity are considered undesirable qualities in every department of human life -- except religion.

Heh. Boy is my face red! I've made this mistake before and never learn. I keep forgetting about the D in Germany! Sorry! Guess Denmark is dk, duh. Germany = de, of course, for the D and the E in "Germany". Yes of course.

Sorry about that!

(yeah I know it's actually Deutschland but I had quite a laugh typing the above)

What a waste when they use AT. It just makes me sick when it's that evident. I'll bet it was a time-sensitive recording and they fixed errors with it. But heck, so much of it. The kid can't be that bad.

Geez you guys are brutal. I just thought it was a nice version, and thought it cool that some kid chose to do a Freddie song. I apologize if I hurt anyone's ears or stomachs :-P

As far as the auto-tune stuff, I just don't notice things like that, but in a world where huge recording artists are shown to be phonies all the time, so what if young feller used technology to enhance his recording?

Oh well.

Definately not better than Freddie, but I think the kid did a pretty nice job!

God, I just found this

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lJ9mzVV3Gc&mode=related&search=

It's live, when he was like 8 or 9, It's very well sung, but he has such an annoying nasal, robotic vocal sound.


He should do the Mr roboto voice

The boy's voice sounds so artificial, it's embarrasing. He sounded much better as a 9-year old.
