We were pleased with this CD. The music is played and sung well, and I can't see it getting on our nerves for quite some time. There is one reviewer who said he was worried that his child would look silly at school because the melodies are so different, but they seem to be quite close to the originals (as I remember them) to me. Anyway, children learn quickly so it wouldn't be too much of a problem. The only drawbacks are the cost of this and the fact that there's no song sheet inside for all those parents who've forgotten the lyrics. On the whole though, worth having.
