Good cover.....video is great
*
I hate this version!!! M.J's is a masterpiece compared to this!
How on earth did it spend a massive 8 weeks @ #1 in Australia?
***
At the time great but in hindsight not so much. UK#3 and Ireland#2. 345,000 copies sold in the UK.

Not a bad cover I guess...

Fantastic cover that is about a trillion times better than the original version. Love all the changes they made and it was a pleasant surprise to see this stay so long at #1. Amazing, amazing track.

Love the rockiness to this song. Much better than the MJ version.
*****
awesome cover of MJ's awesome track.

ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING!

Not even close to as good as the original. Too long at #1 on the Oz chart.

Mindless head-banging pop-rock which was, unfortunately, bound to achieve big things.
***
I had to re-listen to both versions to be sure, but there is just no spark to this whatsoever. I guess I liked it when I was 9, but it's aged terribly, the original is ridiculously superior to this. On a positive note, the clip is pretty cool, but again not close to the original's.

Although to be fair, I feel I hate this more for what it represents than the actual track itself, but I'm not rushing to give it compliments. 2.5

I didn't really like this at first, but it is a grower. I think I prefer this to the MJ version, which is surprising.
******
Very nice!

Yuck

I will never to this day understand why this song spent 8 weeks at #1 in Australia. Either way, it was an enjoyable cover and very of it's time. Not as great now.
**
This can't even compare to the original to be honest.
***
A decent cover version of MJ's "Smooth Criminal". Like Hijinx I liked it at the time and preferred it to the original but it hasn't aged well and imo is not near the original. There are parts that aren't too bad but parts that I really don't like (eg. the vocals and the bridge). How it spent 8 weeks at #1 is beyond me.
