It's definately not that he's ashamed, considering he's released several worship albums of his own. Personally I love his voice and I also downloaded it before I heard he didn't want people to. (Sorry Vic, but even if I did know I would've done it anyway) I absolutely love this song. The Russian version is beautiful but I just think it's so much more meaningful when Vic sings it, since he is the voice of Ed. Would've been cool if Al's VA could've sung Al's part, though. My only disappointment is that in the english version they leave out Al's second verse, which is a shame becuase it's well-written just like the other verses thanks to Tobu Ishi. (Who needs to be credited more than Vic, considering Tobu's the reason he sang it in the first place!)

I e-mailed Vic and asked him. He replied as such:
"The reason I didnt want it distributed is because it is not a licensed piece. I just did it for fun, but it is not a sanctioned recording. I don't want to cause any trouble so I am trying to keep it from getting around too much."
So, no big contraversy, just that...

I loved this song so much, Vic has such a wonderful singing voice! Tobu Ishi-san wrote such beautful lyrics, too. As much as I would have liked to hear Aaron Dismuke sing in this song as well, I think its pretty cool that Vic got to sing what was supposed to be Al's part, too!

aaah that is so beautiful! I only heared the russian one.
Hey, Tobu-san, I did a spanish version of Kessenai Tsumi (some posts under here) and I was planning on doing an english version of it, but since I heared you already have one and OMG! you are so great at lyrics... I was wondering if I could get permission to sing yours? (and get the lyrics, of course... I promise I will credit)
My ephimerous life like a flower fades away, but I,m glad I could stay just to see your shining smile If i was like a bird and I had the wings to fly I would give you my strenght, heal with love your broken back...

I heard this song in english as well, and at first I didn't know it was Vic (Ed's VA) who was singing it...And I was kind of like this person sound just like Edward Elric, then come to think of it's the actual voice actor. I liked it though, and I would loved to hear Al (Aaron) singing it too. But even with Vic just singing it was still cool and yeah pretty emotional too...(lol)
