So I love this boxed sets. This one has some seldom heard songs (refer to the list - it's a fun assortment) and the quality is good. I'm not that picky about exacting sound - but it seems fine to me. I'd say it's a chick CD assortment - but I don't think it would be uncomfortable for males to be around. But I suspect most men wouldn't choose it - pretty girly-fun and sometimes crying-in-your tea music.
