The music sounds nice but the vocal is, um... well... how can I put this?

On the plus side I do like his sleeve use of Stanley Kubrick though.

This seems to be a fairly serious effort so I would judge it more harshly than I do people posting their youtube cover versions. They're probably nice, interesting people.

This stripped-down cover of Istanbul is arguably more worthy of attention, if only for the fact that the singer can actually sing. Though, sadly, there is no Stanley Kubrick picture.

Absolutely incredible cover, better than Morrissey's new reinterpretation of the song live. Awesome.

This is one of those covers where I went "Oh, cool! Yeah…umm, actually…no."

If the tempo was upped and the singer sounded more like R. Dean Taylor's "There's a Ghost in My House"…Yeah!

Is it just me, or does the style seem specifcally choosen to appeal to Moz himself? The horns, and the throwback era vocals similar to something we might hear in the pre-concert tape from some obscure television appearance of a relatively unknown artist. I like it, it just seems intentionally crafted to that purpose.

There seems to be a very low bar you have to reach for Morrissey covers.

This is a terrible choice for a cover. I think the only voice that could do a reasonable job of this would be Brett Anderson. It's not as bad as I expected, but not good.

Cover versions. Tricky things. I applaud the effort but this is not my kind of music at all. The art work is very good.

I bet most people don't even listen to the whole song once before making their comments. This cover is fantastic.
