An, uh, addendum to my official Bowie Summer Challenge entry.

Ha, this is pretty epic. I like what you did with the breakdown solo thing.

Hell yes! This is awesome. I got this song too but the original is just so perfectly self-contained I've struggled to do anything interesting with it. Your version takes it somewhere else. I agree with cortex - it's properly epic and that guitar arrangement is totally fantastic.

This is one of my favorite songs ever, so I was apprehensive. And you KILLED it. YES YES YES.

Whoa! Loving how rocked-out this track is!

Agreeing with everyone who is calling this epic. Awesome, powerful sound. \m/

Great version of Moonage Daydream. I really like how you've taken ownership of the lyrics and their delivery in a fairly straight cover. Even original artists don't always do that well when performing a song live. I wouldn't mind slightly less echo on the vocals, but that's a personal taste thing. The guitarwork is proper rocking, like this song should be.
