Most Helpful Customer Reviews

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By James Harrison on March 5, 2008
Format: Paperback
The latest edition in this series sees the continuing trend of the editors to choose articles for the quality of the writing rather than the interest of the subject. Whilst their objective is admirable, but not altogether succesfull, I have purchased this series, since inception, as a music fan and frankly the subject matter has been poor in recent years.
