The first part of the chorus's melodies really make this song (the original), I don't see why the one(s) who arranged this decided to leave it out. Now it feels like something is missing. Also, the made up verse is dumb.
Overall 3/10, as someone who usually enjoys his covers.
this sounds like if lifehouse had written the song.
This guy has a much more suited for a cover like this though. Tyler's is extremely put on and nasally. Doesn't work. Though I really dislike that super clean acoustic and country esque harmonies. So your description is spot on.
