Haha. Yes, I have to turn down the my stereo so no one can hear it. I'm sure my Dad would laugh at it -and me for listening to it. Well, it's not his pronunciation that is horrible, but the "timbre" of his pronunciation. He is too whiny or overly dramatic. There are people who are less acurate than him, but still much more pleasing to listen to.
I have read very unfavorable comments on the Web (from Greeks !) who say that Sydney Allen and Stephen Daitz relied too heavily on clues provided by the Latin transcription of Greek words.
Don't trust contemporary Greeks on pronunciation!
For me, Sydney Allen usually does give good arguments most of the time. I don't notice Sydney Allen really relying too heavily on Latin transcriptions of Greek words. He uses evidence from ancient grammarians to good old plain comparative philology. The part that I disagree is where he subjectively suggests pronunciations. Like suggestions to use monophongs instead of long diphthongs with iota subcripts. A really controversial one is where he suggests to not really attempt pitch accent even though he knows that it exists.
Here is my favorite rendition so far:
