excellent in every way except for background music

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Excellent poems, and excellent readers, BUT I found the background music intrusive and completely unnecessary-- If you like poetry, you know it stands by itself. Having a sound tract is like listening to too song played simultaneously. arg!

It's pretty annoying.

The background music makes distracts. Who would want to hear an overbearing orchestra when you you should be concentrating on the sounds of Shelley, the words of Shakespeare or the descriptions of Keats?

Background music to loud

The background music is loud and overshadows the narrator. Ignore this sentence, apparently reviews must contain a minimum of fifteen words.
