I do wonder if this might be a case of the first version that you listen to is the "right" version and the other version sounds off.
If that were the case, I would prefer the Jim Dale versions, since those were the first I listened to. Don't get me wrong, I think the Dale versions are excellent. But I think the Steven Fry versions are even better. And they have the virtue of the language not having been "Americanized".
