A poor substitute
The songs lose too much without Tom Lehrer's grating, ironic voice behind them. The voices here are too trained and too smooth, the rhythms too even. There's nothing lively, nothing corny, nothing biting. Go for the original--- if you can find it.

Lehrer is the only one that can sing these songs!
not the same
The original tom lehrer is amazing, especially "that was the year that was". This doesn't compare at all to him. They have cds for sale of him, just get those instead.
