know what you're getting -- this is a coffee table book w/ great images of covers and actual vinyl (nice touch) but EXTREMELY light on any history/content or even opinion about the actual album. it's essentially a glorified list. can't quibble much w/ the choices (it's smartly billed as 101 essential ROCK records so it can avoid any pesky r&b, soul, funk and still have credibility). it's nice, too, to have some left-field choices (e.g., pretty things, vashti banyan) and not EVERYTHING be the usual classic rock suspects. still, i expected more commentary -- that part was a disappointment.
