REVIEWS
Average points: 3.64 (Reviews: 28)
****
...gut...
****
gutes Jimmy Cliff-Cover
****
Fällt gegenüber anderen Versionen leicht ab. Ziemlich leichtgewichtig arrangierter Reggae, der dem Thema nicht angemessen ist.
***
Wirkt auf mich langweilig.
****
sexy...
***
Akzeptabel - mehr nicht; leider.
****
Solider Reggae.
****
gut
****
Der Song steht seiner Stimme. Auch die Background-Chöre sind schick. Aber die Sounds sind zum Teil fast schon doof. Ganz knappe 4.
****
Knapp kein Hit in die NL Hitparade...guter cover von Jimmy Cliff !
***
Überzeugt mich nicht wirklich.
******
Sehr gute Coverversion. Mir gefallen einfach diese E-Drums so gut, wenn sie in einem Reggae-Song wie diesem eingesetzt werden.
***
...in der Tat etwas langatmig; da gabe es flottere Sachen von UB40...
***
Abgerundet. Weitgehend plätscherig und ohne Spannung.
***
nicht mal ansatzweise so gut wie im Original von 1969..
UK #16
***
klingt reichlich verzerrt
*****
Electro-Pop-Reggae mit dem Anspruch, die Seele des Stücks hervorzuheben - ein modernes Update.
*
nervt leider gewaltig!
***
von Jimmy Cliff doch klar besser, diese Version hier ist ziemlich lahm abgehalten - 3*...
****
prima cover van dit nummer afkomstig van "Labour of love" uit 1983
****
Ok

3* zeker niet meer
****
... 4 geht in Ordnung ...
*****
Tolles Lied und hier passt Alis Stimme sehr gut.
***
... anhörbares Cover ...
******
Excellent cover. I love it.
***
...ein 'mageres' Cover von UB40...
**
und schon wieder dieser nervende, gepresste Gesang... ein furchtbares Gejaule, ist genauso schlimm wie "Red red Wine"...
