      When Alejandro does a cover of your song, it's not your song anymore.

            People keep blaming the band for playing too loud. But this is a rock song! They already tried to soften it down a lot to match his voice. This song is not for him.

                      I liked how he did not over kill the song. It stayed “nice and sweet” throughout the whole thing

                            Professional keyboard artist/producer Cori Jacobs gives him high praise as he breaks down the chord arrangements by Alejandro. Search this on YouTube to check it out "cori jacobs on alejandro aranda"

                                          He has to sing Dave Mathew's Crash with the right ingredient this time ... pressure!

                                            Everyone is saying the background music is too loud but it's actually distracting from the fact that he can't sing. His voice is weak and off pitch. He was singing too low for his range and struggling to keep up.

                                              He literally sang the title of the song. Too "under pressure" = read: no pressure at all. No ... force or energy at all. Yikes!
