poems ruined by irritating musical backing
There is a loud musical backing to every poem as if they thought the poetry by itself not worth recording - as a result you strain to hear the words. Its an alarmingly stupid idea.
There should be a clear warning of this and it should go under the separate genre of 'poetry set to music by idiots'
Well what a fiasco, ruined by the music
The narrators are excellent I would not change them.
Each poem should be introduced. A good selection ruined by the music.
