You took a great song and totally made it your own, which is what a good cover should do IMHO.

Well done!

Finding a key and a singer who could sing it without falsetto was more work than I had imagined, but I think it was worth the time.

Wonderful how you can let your AI singer Solaria sing heavenly, even though she is a creep and a weirdo!
Great performance!

And funny to see al those Brains helped you with the song...

Wow!

Thank you J&B for your kind feedback.

The bar for phrasing was pretty high, as Thom Yorke does some amazing things with his voice, so I spent indeed most of my time on that.
Glad you guys like it smile

Thanks Ray for listening and your feedback, I always value your opinion.
The vocals are actually a clusterf*ck of compromises.
I didn't want to use a falsetto part and I didn't want to transpose the high part down as most singers do, so I started low (had to) to be able to go somewhere, to have a late climax.
It was a conscious decision with the risk that I would probably lose most of the audience before the best part came smile
