Not from me. Her lips and tits can't save this one and I'll tell you why.

 

1. Covers suck. Write your own music. With a setup like that she should be spending time writing anyway. (If she is. Good for her, more of that, less of this.)

 

2. Nine Inch Nails in particular is not meant to be played accoustic. When Reznor writes something. All of his electronic effects MEAN something. Every sound is specifically tailored to enhance the emotions he is trying to describe.

 

Even his VOICE matches the mood, the effects, the key of the song.

 

The downward spiral album is not meant to be an album that you listen to and then go have a nice day.

 

She butchered this song completely, I can't even say nice try with a straight face.

 

And she could use vocal lessons. That one is not so personal against her. EVERY vocalist could use more lessons.

I agree with your assessment.  Hearing her croon, "my whole existence is FLAH-awww-uh!" made me cring.  This is not how this song is supposed to be sung.

here's my assesment:  1st, the subtle distortion over the whole thing is too much..that said, style wise, she couldve litererally just 'changed the words' making it an original...and then..i think it mightve actually been 'ok' ...

Yes it is much better.  I will grant her a participation prize for not overdoing it or trying to MAKE this song hers.
