  1. Exactly what I was going to say. The song epically channels Queen of the Freddie Mercury era, but in arrangement, not in vocal prowess. I walked into it hoping for superhuman vocals, which never coalesced. I will admit myself a bit disappointed at that (merely because of my misunderstanding of DJP's review and my high expectations for all things virt), but once I realized that the arrangement quality was sky-high and the Weird Al vocals worked, I really enjoyed myself. Easily one of the high points of the album for me, so far (I'm 2/3 of the way through).
  2. Personally, I enjoyed the original pre-vocal arrangement more. A large part of its original charm for me was the simplicity and purity of solo acoustic guitar. That's not to say this iteration wasn't good, because it was. My only additional gripe is that there were quite a few pitches that were just slightly under where they ought to be, and most of them were probably fixable. I was impressed with how well the vocals fit the target folksy style, and felt overall that it was a decent mix. I would be more impressed with the vocal pitches being fixed, though. =P
