5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than it has a right to be 15 Oct 2002
Format:Audio CD
I understand the skepticism of some of the other reviewers of this single. Haven't Will and Gareth done enough cover versions already? And could they have picked songs any more identified with the two biggest pop stars of the 20th century? All that said, I was greatly surprised by how their two voices merge so well and keep "The Long And Winding Road" from being just another pointless remake. The production is understated (unlike the Beatles' version, I might add), allowing the two singers to harmonize their way through this classic, making it sound fresh to me. While Gareth may not yet have the skill to successfully maneuver an Elvis classic, he certainly doesn't kill "Suspicious Minds". And finally, Will's choice (or Simon's choice?) of Jackie Wilson's "I Get The Sweetest Feeling" proves to be a good match, as he lightly swings through this nostaglic number. All in all, much better that it has a right to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant duet by 2 very talented youngsters! 25 Aug 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I am a big fan of both Will Young and Gareth Gates, so when I heard they are releasing a duet of 'The Long and Winding Road', I was so pleased. I was even more pleased when I heard the actual song. It is absolutely brilliant! They both have amazing voices (Will's being the stronger and more unique), and their voices blend so well in harmony. They put so much feeling and emotion into the words and bring more meaning to the lyrics. It sends a shiver down my spine everytime I hear it. They don't sing a note wrong, and as the song was recorded live in one take, and without any editing, it shows just how talented they both are. I will certainly buy this single as soon as it comes out!

3.0 out of 5 stars Please no more covers!!! 26 Sep 2002
Format:Audio CD
Two things that are annoying me at the moment:1: Too many covers around 2: Too many covers around that have only just been covered!! Don't get me wrong, sincere vocal performances from both lads, of which I both like a lot, but the entire single is cover version all three tracks. Plus The Long and Winding Road was only recently covered on the B-Side of SClub 7's "You" Single. These are too very talented guys, and while theirs nothing wrong with doing cover versions, especially when there done well, it's all getting too much now, and a bit lazy. Rather than covering, their basically just re-recording it with their vocals. I do like this, but please lads, Im really lookign forward to your album, lets make sure it contains some original material, or else in the mean time, I can't blame people for gettign angry over these consistent cover versions. Sorry!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic song! 21 Sep 2002
Format:Audio CD
An absolutely ace song. Will and Gareth's voices blend together perfectly although Will has obviously got the more talented and unique voice. A beautiful song with two singers with perfect pitch.
