: : Hi there,
: : He "sounds like a broken record"? Does that refer to someone who talk about things repetively or not clearly?"


: I think this means that a person is sounding cacophonious when he sings.. just like a broken record that cannot play music the way it should!

A "like a broken record" means the person says the same thing over and over. When a record was scratched or broken, it would hang up and play a segment over and over.
