I'm not sure what the aural equivalent of "rose tinted spectacles" is, but I strongly suspect a case of it here. If they are better than expected, it probably has more to do with a favourable acoustic than anything else. But I'm really only mailing to suggest that pursuit, exploration or speculation on the latter points in the above extract would be pointless. They must surely be a standard M&S job of the period
