    5 points @markv : You've captured something special there. I can't even work out why I like I so much. Set a great mood that held me throughout.

    3 points @IMC1980 : Another rocker from you with great vocals.

    Very hard to decide between the next two and I kept oscillating. Finally decided on 

    1 point : @flying_pie : A good clever arrangement.

    It's not a competition.

    5 points - @markv - love your guitars and the bassline on this track, it has a dreamy almost hallucinogenic quality. Great job!

    3 points - @flying_pie - always enjoy your mashups, especially like the ending.

    1 point - @stratman3142 - I have to say, it was very close between you and @Bezzer, but your orchestral arrangement edged it in the end, dense and satisfying to listen to.

    Great efforts all round as usual guys!

    Another great selection of tracks chaps.  I really like hearing everyone's different takes on the songs each couple of months.

    I'm going for …
    5 points - @markv - like the others have said, it just sort of speaks to me.  Feels very 80s in the right way, Flock of Seagulls, The Cure, something about those guitar sounds I love.

    3 points - @IMC1980 - RAWWK, just great

    1 point - @flying_pie - took me back to the early 90s at uni so nostalgia got me hard.

    @stratman3142 - really nice arrangement just didn't speak to me as much as the other 3.  


    Man I love these challenges, I just hate the voting part!!

    The depth of talent around here continues to amaze me - not just the guitar playing, but the singing, arrangement and recording. I enjoyed all of the tracks.

    5 points @Bezzer - love the Pearl Jam take on it. So completely different from the original and yet it fits. 
    3 points @IMC1980 - seriously solid rock, brilliantly done. I wish I could sing like that.
    1 point @stratman3142 - wouldn't have expected an orchestral version at all, I liked the arrangement. Reminds me of something that I can't quite put my finger on. Moby perhaps?

    Sorry @flying_pie, good stuff and a very imaginative arrangement, but the style didn't work as well for me, subjective I know (well, isn't it all)

    This was difficult. Every entry would justify the top spot. I'll go with

    5 points @markv ;- after the comments here I had high expectations and it didn't disappoint

    3 points @Bezzer ;- excellent job at recreating a Pearl Jam vibe

    1 point @IMC1980 ;- awesome as always. The same style as your other covers which could lead to the law of diminishing returns applying but why change when you do it so well...

    Sorry @stratman3142 as you did a great job too but I generally tend to prefer vocals to instrumental.. Perhaps if you'd added some Il Divo vocals ...  On second thoughts it's better that you didn't as that would have been a step too far!

    Gutted uncle missed this one... hopefully back for the next ;)

    top work again ladies... seriously good...

    5 points @markv - great from start to finish.
    3 points @Bezzer - Eddie Cheddar all the way
    1 point @flying_pie - really like this.


    @IMC1980 and @stratman3142 both deserve points tbh... excellent entries all round again... and not one banjo ;)

    Voting closed (was supposed to be last night but forgot and also put the wrong day in the thread...

    But it doesn't really matter because the winner is clear and any other result would require an investigation due to the necessary flurry of late and suspicious voting
