Loud, distracting background music

I've no idea what these people were thinking when they decided 1. there HAD to be background music the entire time and 2. it had to be as loud as the reading or louder. Some of the music itself was just weird as well

I got half way through before finally giving up. I don't recall most of the stories I listened to. Sure remember the dreadful music though. Waste of money
