As a long-time Queen fan (fanatic back then actually since late '73) BRAVO! There were some very tiny differences between his version and the
original but he does such an excellent job with every instrument, every voice and even the mix is close to the original.
I love that he plays a Brian May guitar and probably used a sixpence for a pick as you can hear the metal - on -metal sound. The solo is a trifle more
distorted than the original but played very tastefully with much of the same emotion that May put in to it.
Big props for not resorting to any studio tricks or pitch modulation on the voices.
He got really, really close to getting the Roger Taylor high "for MEEEEEE!" part too.
Dunno why Alpha has to find fault in everything.
One word for it:.
ETA: I got to hear BOC twice as a young kid. We lived next to a corner tavern in Upstate NY and I would hang out with friends and play with the
owner's puppies while listening to the bands play. They were amazing even back in "71. Buck Dharma = guitar god.
