I finally heard the entire version of Levinhurst's cover of "All Cats Are Grey" (I cannot say where, for "legal" reasons).  I, personally, think it sucks REALLY bad.  I appreciate the atmosphere, but I think the vocals are just ill-suited for this track - to boring.  About the atmosphere, though.  Any cover of "All Cats" is going to have an "atmosphere" as the song was written this way, so I can't give them any points on that.  Back to the vocals - Robert has perfected the flat, pseudo-monotone delivery while Cindy Levinson really hasn't. 
On another note, I have nothing against Levinhurst and I thought their cover of "A Forest" was fine in it's own right.  This version of "All Cats", however, is an abomination!

PS ... The band Air has release an album of songs that were influential for them for the 'Late Night Tales' project.  Apparently, the #1 song that has influenced them was none other than The Cure's "All Cats Are Grey".
