    Well done to everyone who managed to put anything to disk on this one, I tried to get enthusiastic about anything from Roxy Music but everything I heard was the audio equivalent of brussel sprouts; it made me gag until it was removed. Anyway, my votes go to:

    5 points for @stratman3142 - Nailed the Floyd vibe whilst maintaining the the melody of song (which is quite good when Bryan Ferry isn't singing it)
    3 points for @poopot ft. Bezzer - Very accomplished musically, also a very tenuous link to Roxy Music, really like this version of Jealous Guy but then I am a fan of Black Crowes. @Bezzer I was very impressed with the vocals, couple of tweaks needed here and there but you have a great vocal tone!

    1 point @Bezzer - Nice work production wise, guitars and drums sounded right for that style but I wasn't grabbed by the vocals, do more classic rock!

    Well done again guys, very tough and a shame that the winner did not enter, can one of you tag him in the OP so he votes on the entries?

    5 points : BezPot @poopot ft. Bezzer : An authentic country rock sound with a hint of the Stones as well. Nicely arranged

    3 points : @Bezzer : For an insane version of the original. Very clever and creative recording approach.

    It's not a competition.

    I don't know anything by Roxy Music so going in blind. 

    5 points @Bezzer - seriously, what on earth was that?!  That was slightly unexpected coming out of the speakers!! I'm guessing that's not how the original sounded!! Really well done and great fun, sort of Meshuggah meets Korn with some shred in the background. Great stuff!! (edit: it did actually make me laugh when it started!!)

    3 points @stratman3142 - lovely arrangement and great tasteful playing and yes, very Floydy. 

    1 point @poopot - also very well done as per the other two, they just floated my boat a bit more. Great arrangement and really good vocals.

    @Vibetronic ha ha, thank you man! Yeah, it’s a slight departure from the original. Glad you spotted the references ... and it made me laugh too, so job done :)

    The version by @Bezzer is so extreme it merits the new musical term "doing a Bezzer" :) Which I may well use in future.

    It's not a competition.

    3pts: @stratman3142 Very Gilmourish as intended, and a good interpretation
    1pts: @Bezzer Made me think of Lamb of God. I hope your throat has recovered since. =)
