dude
I love it. the overwrought vocals are endearing in the verses then the effects coming in for the choruses put me into outer space :-) love the gilmour style guitar as always -- five stars.

i can hear Vic style buried in there and yours on top driving it into a more rootsy indie area. really nice take on his tune.

You've captured a really nice vibe here making it real easy to listen to as it drifts along. Super indie quality.
Nice one

Awesome
Yeah this has that Vic stamp trademark on it. Very awesome cover, the music & vocals are just great! It's not easy to pull off a cover, but you did it justice.

Cool
Nice work on this. I like the feel of it overall. It sounds muffled for some reason on my system though, am I the only one? A little muffle doesnt remove the enjoyability of the song though.

Very nice Cover, Jim
You tamed this down some from Vic's original, and in so doing you made it your own. I particularly love the wonderful Harmonies you did on the Chorus.

Excellent Cover my friend,

Ed

Great cover!
Hey, this is a really well-done cover! You totally made it your own but I hear the Holman-esque elements. You (and Vic) should be proud of this :)

I Won't Fly
Oops! Almost missed this. I'm a big fan of Vic's songs so you get props for good taste. Great dynamics. Nice contrast between verse and chorus. I like the way the piano track lightly drives the whole thing. Nice mix!

Great hushed homage to a great tune.
Love the whammied chords, in-your-face leads in teh intro. Neat vocal, too. In fact, the whole thing's got a nice, unified feel. Reverbed chorus... just fun and effective. I haven't checked but I think some will compare this sound to After the Gold Rush. Not that I'm doing that...

What a great song, Hope Vic feels pride in this one. It's great. FOR THE CURIOUS, here's the link: http://www.macjams.com/song/27137

Cover challenge
I think I seen this "Cover Challenge" thing mentioned a few times now. What is it exactly, any covers or covers of MJ artists. Cool concept if it's other MJ artists. I've heard some tunes that it would be fantastic to give a try.

I think I saw one comment that used the word "intimate" to describe this tune. +1
