Behind the Music
17 May 2003 | by (Iceland) – See all my reviews

Could be so much better. They often talk about lot of things that has nothing in common with music or the artists. They should hire real music experts to work on this show because it is missing a lot especially the shows that are about certain years in music. They could do so much better with this show.
