Frisian

I know a few people have wondered what Frisian, the closest living language to English other than Scots, sounds like. Here's a link I found: http://www1.omropfryslan.nl/Utstjoering_Mist_46.aspx

I know my perception is probably colored by my time studying German, but it sounds like American English to me, in terms of general sound.

For those of you who've never heard Frisian before (and those who have), what are your thoughts?
