 Fun Works for the Young May 18, 2017 By owen  ryan (lakewood, CA) See All My Reviews "These light fun-filled works can be enjoyed by the young of heart. No deep and profound meanings here-- it is what it is. I don't have any other examples of these pieces to compare performances with but it all sounds good to me. Best of all the audio is great: the top end might shatter expensive stem ware crystal and the bottom end will rattle your windows. Hey, you can't have more fun than this for $5-." Report Abuse
