    A decent cover, though Mike's lyrics seem to be badly sung to me. They feel off. Otherwise this makes for an enjoyable cover to listen to.

    Really good cover. Much better than Josh Groban's cover anyway.

    Great cover. Always enjoyed this choir, particularly their 'Smells Like Teen Spirit', 'With Or Without You' and 'Friday, I'm In Love' covers. Beautiful sound.

    Nice, something Belgian on LPA :) They're also doing the soundtrack with 'Nothing else matters' in Zero Dark Thirty

    Hopefully the song gets a little more attention now.

    Decent cover, but it isn't really the best thing ever...

    Undoubtedly beautiful, but I think the emotion of the original could have been translated better, and choir singing isn't really my thing.

    Funny, that's the only part I really enjoyed. They just translated the whispering into a cool little melody. The cover sounds good, but just like the god-awful Josh Groban version, it misses the nerve and edge that Chesters slightly off-key verses brought to the song. Made it seem fragile and human, which strengthens the lyrics. Both covers (especially Grobans) made the song sound big and polished and to me, that's just missing point of the song entirely.

    Of course they're not LP. I love LP much more.

    Couldn't agree more. It sounds wonderful with the exception of Mike's part.
