This is where I get to cut Mr. Llime down a notch or two. I do have to admit that mashing It’s My Life by Bon Jovi with Don’t Fear the Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult is actually a good idea – basically, he is juxtaposing life and death. It’s the execution that needs some improvement. He is doing all the lead vocals, and it is obvious that he had recorded everything at home, probably on his computer – it certainly sounds like it. However, even after I get over that, I have to say that my greatest disappointment comes from the fact that the great B.O.C. guitar break from the original is missing. I consider that particular piece one the most dramatic guitar solos ever.
Having said all of that I need to admit that the video is excellent. It was put together by Chris Johnson of Falling Walls Productions and she certainly knows what she is doing. I guess the visual part of it makes up for the audio’s faults, so on the overall it is worth watching once.
