4.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Informative, January 7, 2010

This review is from: The Ambient Century: From Mahler to Moby--The Evolution of Sound in the Electronic Age (Paperback)
This book gave more information than I could have asked for from an unbiased view. Details include analysis for the motives of each artist and his contributions. This book even goes beyond the rocker spectrum to provide details for the inventions, their cultural diffusion, and how they influenced most genres we know today - All starting from what most would consider before the beginning as not to leave out any details. The author's descriptions are factual, yet insightful at the same time. The large index allows for you to put the information in your own order. Though not much detail is presented about the electronic inventions from a scientific angle, suggested listening and stories for each artist encourage extension of learning about the music of the twentieth century. If you want to learn about electronic music's hearth and spread across our world, I would recommend you The Ambient Century.
