Here are my two cents. It was obvious that Nirvana was bound to be covered eventually. But I can't say I like this rendition. It's not bad, it's just not good. I have a hard time figuring out why. But If I try I would say it's partially the singer not having the voice to carry such a slow rendition of this song. She's not able to create the vocal filling it needs. The other part is that the song is not that good a piece of music. It's grunge and grunge was at it's root simple music. It's hard to make something more out of a simple song, specially if you slow it down. The song was originally all bout angst and anger and the raw, fast noise. It's hard to take that and slow it down. It's lays it a bit bare and one sees there is not much there.

It needs to be arranged as a singer and a piano with a small orchestra backup. The piano player should have channeled his inner Elton John - the one playing a ballad like Someone Save My Life Tonight, not the one playing Crocodile Rock.
