My god are these CD's BAAAAD. I bought this set on another deal site a couple months ago, excited to have a handy little case of children's songs for a long road trip we were about to take. Wow. Out of the 20 CD's, the only ones that are bearable, are the bedtime/nighttime and classical music CD's. The rest are absolute torture...a "chinese water torture" type of torture.
They take familiar melodies(Pop goes the Weasel, ABC song, Auld Lang Syne, Alouette, etc...), and basically narrate what you might read in a baby's board book to those tunes. Completely random, made up songs that nobody can sing along to. If they do sing a familiar song, it is going to be set to a weird tempo that you can't follow, unless it's a christian song. For some reason only THOSE songs are sung in a traditional, familiar style.
EVERY song is sung the same way. They are all sung with super girly, wispy, soft but high-pitch voices...no harmonizing, no variation, and all the singers have the exact same range(?). Very boring and repetitious.
The best part of the purchase? THE CASE.
