He sounds like Sufjan in a way. Kinda boring cover though.

It was very good. The quality was a bit meh, but you couldn't help that.
You're not brutal.

Tell your friend that he should start a Coldplay cover band, just beause he has the vocal range to do it.

Haha, great cover though, I could really listen to that for hours, perfectly done. Also with his own little flare to it. Capoed so he can sing it better his own way, showing that feeling on the high notes. Very well done.
