- Bad. Production quality
Maybe I should rate this higher because the voices are good, but I am very aggravated about the production overall. All the way to 1 Cor. The primary problem is music too loud for voices-blocks out the dialog at times. At other points the direction calls were questionable. Ex. Why when the verse says, "Jesus called in a loud voice" does the actor then whisper "Eloi Eloi Lena Sebachtani" to where you cant even hear it? If the narrative says it should be loud, why isn't it read that way? Some back ground noises are too loud and just weird. Why when I am listening to Romans do I hear dripping the whole time as if I am in a cave? Other times there is water sounds that are distracting (at least these are when Jesus is by the sea for the most part). Sometimes a goat or a sheep will bray loudly--not part of the story- and it will distract me, make me laugh, then wonder what the verses I had missed said. Sometimes people acting as voices of the crowd make comments and they will come on way too loud--much louder than the main reader.. This happened a lot in the gospels where I found myself turning the volume up and down a lot. Other times, you would hear the crowd say something clearly distinguishable so that you would wonder if it was part of the actual Bible narrative and many times it wouldnt be. I was annoyed by some added, "Hmm" sounds and such in Jesus's words, but I could put up with that. All of this would have knocked the production down to 3 stars. BUT...then comes the gospel music just dropped in at random. It first started in 2 Cor. I think. I was wondering if they were singing the verses or just a song that related. Turned out is was just a song...a whole 3 minutes of it. Weird, Ithought I was listening to the Bible. That wasnt the only one either. Most of the books following that have a song tossed in there at some point. Hey, they are good songs I am sure. But either I want to hear music or I want to listen to the Bible. I dont want random music dropped in so that I have to skim the file and find where it stops. If these songs would have been bonus tracks, separated out from the books I wouldn't be so frustrated about it.
I did really enjoy revelation. Lots of the sfx were still too loud, but it was more engaging than reading it. I would listen to this Bible again if I am short on time, but I'm on the hunt for an audio Bible that is easier to listen to without so much user control intervention required.
- Fantastic dramatised audio bible!
I have not yet encountered a better audio bible. This really brings so many stories to life! I got to know Jesus through this audio production! I love the different voice actors, and the thought that went into it hermeneutically. I will highly recommend it to anyone!
