When I first read "Musichound Rock: The Essential Album Guide" I had very much mixed feelings about it. On the one hand there was information about a great many artists who were and are not covered in much detail or at all in the previous record guides I had read. In many cases, I devoured this and wanted to find out more (I will confess without mentioning names that I feel with hindsight I was as so often rather reckless).
However, with hindsight I can find many faults with "Musichound Rock: The Essential Album Guide" and all other guides released by the firm. For one thing, their rating system is ridiculously inconsistent: for many artists they will rate albums much more highly than would be consistent, whilst others are rated much less so - and one cannot predict what they are going to do. For another, it is fair to say that my own experience shows that some of the artists included were dubious and that others, like Talk Talk were not listened to carefully.Read more ›
