I wish I had listened to the samples before buying (not sure that they had them on Amazon at the time I purchased this) as I really don't like the way the rhymes have been backed with rock and roll type music. I bought this on the strength of all the positive reviews and I'm very disappointed. There are a couple of the tracks that are okay but most are drowned out by the cover music, noises and randomly inserted extra words. Not what I was hoping for!

It is an account that will stay with me and I hope help me to work… Read more
