Ashley over at eMercedesBenz tipped us off to MB's latest audio adventure, and well, let's put it this way, it might even put their Audio Crapfest to shame. They've collected a bunch of British people to read stories and poems of romance, undoubtedly to make the tinsel-chichi soccer moms of Plano feel worldly as they tool around on errands in their ML-Classes. We've been known to write the odd thing about love and loss and whatnot, but this stuff is just pathetic, pseudo-intellectual treacle. While it's not quite as bad as Ashley's assertion that it's like listening to Celine Dion belt "My Heart Will Go On," the limited exposure we had to it was more than enough.
