I don't like the way the syllables are stretched out to form a melody. The Jews use a similar method which I dislike as well. The reason being, is that the Bible (in its original languages) is meter (syllable counts per paragraph are evenly divisible by 7). When the syllables are stretched out in recitation, it becomes difficult to accurately hear and parse the pattern.
Is the Qur'an metered?
