I can't remember the last time I laughed out loud reading a book. This book had me in stitches at moments and then minutes later, deeply lost in nostalgia and examining the impact of music on my own life. At first I wasn't quite sure what to make of it. Was it an autobiography? Was it an academic dissertation on metal? A comedic rock journalist writing an autobiography? This is not a simple book to classify and unlike anything else I have ever read. Perhaps if Nick Hornby's High Fidelity were focused around metal or if Cameron Crowe had been from Espanola, they would have written something along these lines...

Brent Jensen does a great job capturing the bleak and pop-culturally isolated life of small town Northern Ontario. At times it is highly personal and self-reflective, while also weaving an encyclopedic tapestry of metal culture and speaking to the general impact music has on our lives. It is a highly entertaining and witty book with sections that are written in an intimate style that makes you feel you are leaning in close to hear a story from an old friend.

All in all, a hilarious book full of fascinating information about 80s metal and interesting anecdotes around music and small town Canada. A highly entertaining and thoughtful glimpse into the mind of a metal head from Northern Ontario.

Format: Paperback
As longtime host of radio's Metalshop during Metals heyday, all I can say is that this book nails it. Not only my favorite on the musical genre, but a really fun read as it's personalized in a smart, witty way. Reminds me of Klostermans book, and just as good if not better. Since I spent a good many years growing up in Canada (PEI), I couldn't help but laugh out loud at too many stories contained within to mention. Still having a number of rockstar pals in the hard rock/metal community, this is a no-brainer Christmas gift for them. And Jensens encyclopedic knowledge of Metal, and bringing up so many obscure bands that I'd forgotten about, I can safely say that Eddie Trunk and myself have met our match.
Nice job Brent....

....."I learned a lot, I smiled and giggled throughout it as well! I definitely related to this story. It took me back to a time in my life when everything was so carefree."

Thank you for this book. I really really enjoyed it. I was very surprised at not only how similar our musical interests were but also why we loved the groups that we did. And why we eventually had to move on in some cases. I also could relate to your rural location and how the trips to the record shoppes were priceless. Your style of writing was also enjoyable. Well written but also like talking to other good friends about this special time in our lives. Well Done. I look forward to reading more of your work in the future.

The part where you were staring at the OZ record cover was sooo funny. I also thought it checked all the right boxes until the bald dude on the back. I still bought it though. LOL.
