Summary

An offensive abuse to the ears.

The Good

I liked the idea of Music Construction Set, but in the end my ears just could not take the abuse. If I owned a Tandy/PCjr maybe my review would be different. The interface was quite revolutionary for the PC back in 84 and easy to use. I think Will Harvey deserves some credit here, and the person who decided on a PC port should be shot.

The Bad

Okay, after two seconds of multi voice "music" coming out of a PC, the wow factor simply vanishes. Once the enjoyment of listening to the progrom goes away, the point of using it ceases. All of the other features this program has revolve around playing music, for obvious reasons.

The Bottom Line

If you want a headache and bad music stuck in your head, get this program. Me? I'll put the 8-Track in and listen to Thriller -- anything is better than this.
