If you think "Dark Side of the Moon" was just OK , you found your book~!,
This review is from: The New Rolling Stone Album Guide: Completely Revised and Updated 4th Edition (Paperback)
What a waste of a twenty spot!!!! One star is too much....
Me, I Wished I Had Checked This Out From The Library...Then I could have brought it back. Once upon a time I would look to Rolling Stone for the best in popular music record reviews. No more! Now, much like the decline of the print magazine, the record guide also sucks much more than some of the albums reviewed. I guess I would rather listen to A-ha's second album than read this. Notable for what it leaves out, including George Harrison, Widespead Panic, NIN, Metallica and Ry Cooder, among many others. 98 Degrees and Justin Timberlake ARE included. Take your money, and buy a subscription to Paste Magazine and bookmark the all music guide web site for your record reviews.
Also, the reviewers attempts to sound hip fall flatter than a stale joke. One of these kids thinks Pink Floyd's "the wall" sucks.

Leonard P. Garnell says:
I returned "The Wall" in 1979 or whenever it came out, for Bob Dylan's "Desire" and have never regretted it. That said, I do agree with your excellent review. Yeats was right: thing's are falling apart. Eliot was right, too: we're going out with a whimper.
