New version really sucks.......sorry but it does!!
*
This release is one big mistake.
***
Ok version by this newer bunch of musicians. Like the different lyrics and styles eg rock and rap in this. 11 weeks in the UK top 100. 1 million sold while at #1. UK#1 and Ireland#1. The UK Christmas #1 of 2004. 1.1 million copies sold in the UK.

there are some great harmonies but some of the voices stick out like a sore thumb and the rap is totally unnecessary! that bit sucks!
**
Not a great idea.
***
ok cover nothing real special
***
I don't hate it, but why is Dizzee Rascal on this? Completely out of place.
****
not much, better than the first version
***
Good concept for a good cause, but some of the musicians are a terrible choice for this song although I don't mind the guitar in this! Also I am mystified to the reason why is Dizzee Rascal in this??????

It starts with Chris Martin so that's good enough for me but yes Dizzee Rascal feels out of place as mentioned but luckily he doesn't take up much time. 3.2.
