To me it sounds kind of like a meteoro-phonological Sapir-Whorf hypothesis.

Consider French as spoken in (the arguably cold in the winter) province of Quebec. It's clearly a different language (accent-wise) than Continental French. Must be a weather correlation....

... not really. It's closer to how French was spoken by the French aristocracy back when Quebec belonged to France.

Et cetera. There is no quantitatively "nice" sounding language: for every pot there is a lid.
