I should have paid attention to the previous review! The audio quality is indeed dreadful - imagine a home video recording of a school play... okay, now imagine paying good money for something that is not even as good as that.
In addition, the text is spoken by many of the cast with poor intonation and very little evidence of understanding of what they are saying, which makes the CD effectively useless as a teaching aid. Whilst I accept that the use of children in the cast is designed to appeal to the targetted age of students, it seems like there was no direction or rehearsal of their performances.
I also agree with the previous reviewer that a decent recording of the Minimus dialogues would be worthwhile, but would not advise anyone to buy this CD.
