This is a soft focus, X-Factor-filterised version of a great song by Biffy Clyro, whose own version of the song should have triumphed in the charts and didn't. Actually it's one of Biffy Clyro's less amazing songs, so let me take this opportunity to recommend that you listen to their other music. I've seen them play live, and they blew me away.

Getting back to Matt Cardle. For the first time, the X Factor has produced a winner who was, before signing up to the Cowell sausage machine, an independent singer-songwriter with his own unsigned band, Seven Summers, and an album by the same name. Seventeen years of struggling in the wilderness led Matt to sign up for a shot at X Factor glory and despite all the odds he made it to the final and won the thing. Who would have thought it! A guy with not the slightest interest in projecting a mainstream pop image, or in singing cheesy pop songs. Every single song that he's sung in the contest was a great original that deserved promotion and rediscovery.

So what do you do when a talented singer-songwriter who's spent many years being ignored tries to use a channel like the X Factor just to get some attention and success for both themselves and the music they love. Well you can either turn your back on them, and sneer like a true elitist, or you can cheer them on. Personally I'm taking the latter option. It's not the fault of musicians like Matt that the X Factor has such a toxic hold on popular taste. Matt himself has done nothing whatsoever to promote bad music during his X Factor run. He's stayed true to himself and has produced some lovely work, which looked very out of place on the show. In my opinion, Matt is the beginning of an answer to the X Factor problem. He can write songs, he can play a guitar, and he has a remarkable voice.

Not terrible but a watered down version of the Biffy Clyro track from earlier this year. With the right song he has an amazing voice which can soar to notes which are quite remarkable for a male vocalist. If a fan of Matt's performances on the X-Factor it maybe better to buy the CD Single as this includes his versions of First Time Ever I Saw Your Face, Just The Way You Are & Nights In White Satin.

Amazing- and I am a HUGE Biffy Clyro fan too.

Enough with the hate.. the guy knows this is just a cover and he wants to and will write his own stuff as he's being doing for over 10 years now... Yeah, we get it, COOL people wouldn't really like xfactor crap right? Well, I'm a recent convert and Matt Cardle is the ONLY reason.. Never voted before in my life but he was just too good for this show, but I completely understand why he had to take this route... congrats Matt :)

You may slate Matts single as the usual samey X factor rubbish but two words for you, Joe Mcelderry, now theres an example of a boring x factor winner with his dull warbling, but Matt? He has been true to himself and has been completely unique throughout the competition. His renditions are filled with passion and he really puts his heart and soul into it. He brings a brand new sound to every song he sings. Yes the x factor gets alot of bad press but matt doesnt deserve any. He is an amazing and powerful singer and comes across as a really down to earth person as well. I for one will be buying his single and I hope many others do too. I completely supported the rage against the machines campaign for xmas no. 1 as Joe Mcelderry was untalented, irritating and as dull as dishwater, but Matt is in a whole new league, he brings a much needed new sound to the mainstream pop industry and on top of that is completely humble about his talent. Matt for xmas no. 1!

The title track, 'When we collide", is the only studio track - The remaining three tracks have been lifted from the 'live' X Factor programmes, studio audience participation included. Add to that, the cd insert advertises all the X Factor Tour Dates for another Simon Cowell cost cutting, money making excerise. That said, Matt Cardle is a worthy winner, and as such deserved a better first release than the one studio track and three regurgitated offerings from the TV show. If you are ok with that, buy the CD. I would have waited for the album had I known.

Biffy Clyro are a hugely underrated band and should be as successful as U2, and are better than Kings of Leon (discuss!). That Matt's cover of Many of Horror (When We Collide) has resulted in a lot more people discovering them is great. It's the nature of the XFactor that popular songs are covered, so I say good on whoever's decision it was to break out and cover Biffy. That it's caused so many people to get bitter and judgmental is a shame. Biffy are benefiting from the success and popularity of both Matt and The XFactor - that doesn't demean them as artists nor should it (and I assume they could have refused permission to use the song if they wanted to?). Equally, it doesn't make Matt any less great a singer than he is, that he's come through the XFactor, and it doesn't make him any less viable as an artist either, so enough of the negative comments. He's said he's slogged it for years trying to break into the music business so I for one (of many) am very happy to have voted for him and given him a chance (and well done us, no gimmicks, no hysteria, no bias swayed us, just talent won through!) He's yet to prove himself, but Seven Summers has some great tracks on it, and there is every chance that his solo album will be brilliant. I wish him the best.
