I've been a huge BSS fan for years and this was an immensely enjoyable book. When I finished it, I could go back through the band's (and all the related off-shoots) catalogue with a completely new appreciation for the music. The stories and the history will give you the chance to listen to these records with what will seem like a new set of ears. It's made anticipating the upcoming new album in May even more unbearable though because having read about the band's evolution, knowing that they've stripped things down to a six-member core for the new album will undoubtedly push their sound in different directions.
All in all, if you are a fan of Broken Social Scene or any of its members in the various musical incarnations they've taken over the years, this book is a really beautiful, informal biography of the people that brought the music to life over the years. I waited so long to own this book and I'm so ecstatic that I finally do. The photos, the stories, the history are all worth the read. I love it.

Very interesting to read about all the different bands that have spawned from BSS. I've lent this book out to several friends and they all loved it as well. A must for any BSS fan.Published 23 months ago by r
a complete snooze fest from start to finish.
I guess that's my fault for reading a book about the Canadian music scene.
Boring boring boring.
