At the risk of incurring another Heifer style attack, I'm beginning to get bored of this competition now because the quality just hasn't been there sadly. There's been too many ties like this one.

Anyway, A is a very predictable and conservative recreation of Sinatra in his Capital years. A cynical (as I suspect it's purely commercially driven) pastiche. B actually sounds like a computer virus I got once which implanted a horrible techno every time you booted up.

A I suppose

I could tire of A really quickly. But I'm not keen on the synth sound now.

Describes my feelings pretty much word-for-word. Disappointed that most of this competition has concentrated on either 'unlikely' covers or novelties. There've been disappointingly few reinventions, which I thought more people would take as a challenge.

Oh, and my support of Moddie's post includes sharing A as my vote, in case anyone's wondering.

Ugh, A sounds like something Jamie Cullum would approve of.

Soft Pink Truth's attempt to make a house album of black metal covers is something I find pretty interesting. Rather than just being novelties and taking a formulaic approach, he's actually gone down the route of trying to properly transpose the individual song elements cross the genre-gap. There's a love of the original songs there, even though the nature of the covers is fairly confrontational. Not sure how this doesn't count as a 'reinvention'. I don't own this, but I think I probably should.

I don't get the hate for A. I didn't like it as such, but I didn't find it offensive or anything. It was OK for a couple of minutes until the novelty wore off.
With B, I wouldn't have got the concept without DF's explanation above. And without that, it just sounds like a mediocre glitchy IDM thing.

B I guess.

I have known Frank Bennet for some time after a friend from down under burnt me a copy of that record. Of course the words novelty and pastiche come immediately to mind, and a full record is more than what a reasonable person is ready to take, but the fact is that all his versions of overplayed standards are well worked and materialized, as can be seen in A.

I have checked and concluded that B is better than the original, but that's hardly a compliment.

Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

a - oh, it's a song by the Think Void. I feared a lounge version of Barrett Strong's proper song. So what we have is a knowing modern-day pasticheur of the very worst style of popular music in the last century, covering a song about capitalism by a soulless architecture student. Ooohhhh, irony. Oooohhhh sophistication. Ooooohhhhh sharp suits.
What a load of shit. 2 / 10
b - covering Darkthrone is not usually considered a smart career move, so this already has that in its favour. It's not bad, either, although I probably wouldn't want to own it, nor hear it again, but by Krint it wins this by a (Threadneedle) Street. 4 / 10

I really can't be doing with B at all. Horrid noise. So, A wins despite its schtick being unlikely to linger long in the memory.

Thanks Dave for clarifying that. One day when you actually might run one of these things you will understand the importance of clarity in these matters fully.

B is the sort of thing I wouldn't mind hearing in the background in a club, at least, so that one.
