Waste of Time

This sounded like an amazingly good idea: songs that inspire short stories.
Well, the lyrics are here, but not the music.
So we are left with narrators, who sound like complete amateurs, reading the lyrics.
Oh, and there are "interviews" with the authors. The "interviews" consist of the same set of questions in the same order asked of each author.
Don't waste your time and money on this one.

Where's the music?

While there are indeed numerous short mysteries, all based on music, this recording does not include the musical score. Consequently it is a disappointing listen whith stories ranging from absurd, to delightful. Felt I wasted my time and money.
