Having grown up only reading that one translation the others just feel like cheap imitations, like reading a reader's digest version or a children's version.
I've looked at other versions and there just seems to be something missing from them. It's like reading Shakespeare or Bunyan's book of Pilgrim's Progress in the original text and then reading them in modern English. You just seem to lose some of the flavor of the originals when you do that.
