Default Young's Liternal Translation

I was asked this question about Young's Literal Translation.

What do think of the Young's Literal Translation Bible and his view on how the Bible should be translated? Young makes some interesting comments in the preface to the Revised Edition with regards to a “strictly literal” translation. He makes an issue of the tenses (i.e. present, past, future, etc.) and accuses the KJV translators of altering them, hence altering the meaning of the original text.

BTW, Young’s translation is also based on the Received Text.

Any input/insight will be much appreciated. Thanks.
