Astralia - Abyss of Light
My god what a horrible cover this is. Using a drum machine on a song that originally had one of the best drummers in rock? One critic called "Behind Blue Eyes" the worst in the band's "never-ending series of embarrassing covers" Roling Stone magazine readers, who named it the second-worst cover song of all time. Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland, who was not in the band at the time of recording and releasing this cover, made the following comments about the song and video: "This is probably the worst cover ever, and the video is awful. It's just really embarrassing, and it's so unbelievably self-indulgent. You need to hear the original.
Arena - Moviedrome

Mr. Kitty - After Dark
@Gabrielgvs. Give this a listen.
I have to admit, I'm at a bit of a disadvantage listening given my relative ignorance with the genre. One thing that stands out is his particular use of alternate picking (and to a lesser degree, lots of trem) in straight jazz. I looked into some of his other stuff and sure enough, that picking technique is sort of his signature. Guy is really talented. I listened to one acoustic piece he did and his method came across as almost a classical nylon or flamenco style. Thanks for dropping this here. Love to explore.
Cutting Crew - Died in your arms
