Wow! This is almost EXACTLY like the GX version, except for the instrumental intro prior to 1:11, the short a capella bit at 3:18-3:25, and the vocalizations/refrains after 4:25. The arrangement is almost the same. The way she bends her voice as she sings each note is even the same. It's awesome.
That being said, Ringo's voice has a certain quality hers lacks, and since she is imitating Ringo's performance so closely, it's hard not to notice when she comes up a bit short. In particular I think Ringo pushed her voice a bit harder.
ETA: Scribble R is right, her recent performances of the old songs have been quite good IMO.
There are 2 kinds of J-Pop: Shiina Ringo, and everyone else.

IMO this cover sounds forced and awkward
the same way koda kumi, ayumi and mika nakashima have been sounding for a while in their live performances
the same way any japanese boyband choreography has always made me feel
a little bit embarassed in empathy for the person doing that
and I don't know why Kameda is giving me funny pedo vibes in the background XD

It's excellent. And they did a bit of a deep cut- not just Marounichi or Kabukicho like every other band.

I was scrolling down on youtube when I suddenly stumbled on this guy doing a good cover of Plastic Love
when I checked his profile I discovered a lot of Ringo/Jihen covers
some are just ok, others really good
suberidai 1 and 2
