Wow... what an interesting accent. It's really hard to tell. It's a nice one for sure. I just might borrow it. You say your r's almost like an American (although not as strong), but then say "beautiful" with a t instead of a flap. You sound almost British a little bit sometimes and your /aI/ sounds sound very different like in "sunlight strikes" almost like a Cockney but not as extreme. Your o's sound a little different and before l almost like gold -> gheld. You say path as pahth instead of path, like a Northeasterner. Look almost sounds like how a Californian would say it--sort of like lick. You final d in "end" sounded different as well. Interesting. Are you Irish?
I thought it was rather a muffled, mumbling sort of speech. There was a bit that sounded vaguely irish, but I did not find it 'interesting' at all.
It wasn't clear and articulate.
Q, thank you for your reply. I'm not Irish, actually I've never been to Ireland. I was born in Russia, but after a few years I moved to the Netherlands and I have lived there ever since. I speak Dutch and Russian as a native speaker.
When I began working on my pronunciation, I decided to concentrate on the British Received Pronunciation. After listening to my own recordings, I realized that it wasn't British, something between American and British. But I never thought that you would say that I'm Irish.
By the way Q, where are you from, if I may ask? I'm just wondering...

That's interesting, because that is the way I speak most of the time.
Yur accent sounded very much like the Dutch version of British RP, but with some typically Russian mumbling, I would say.

I'm from Washington.
