Review

USAToday.com’s Pop Candy Blog, PopMatters
“I look forward to it every year!”

USA Today
“[P]ieces examine the music world in a social context, which makes for a challenging, and engaging, read.”

USAToday.com’s Pop Candy blog
“[Y]ou really should get the book, which is one of my favorite annual compilations.”

BooklistOnline
“…essential, as usual.”

Music Media Monthly, June 2010
“A can’t-put-it-down survey… [it] admirably fills in the blanks, explains, cajoles, reveres and lambasts the music culture and the artists who define contemporary popular music—today and as we’ve come to know it.”

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I own most every year of this series and look forward to each new issue. 2008 was the first issue I read on my Kindle. Every now and then a book isn't ideal on the Kindle. This one has a story entitled "Six-Word Reviews of 763 SXSW Mp3s.. ". I go to SXSW every year and really looked forward to reading this article. It is unreadable, period. The printed book had tables, formatted horizontally, of reviews which look like they were scanned into the Kindle edition. They are virtually unreadable and when you turn the Kindle to read them, it rotates the page to horizontal mode, compressing them and again orienting them away from the reader. Argh! Totally frustrating and totally useless. If you don't mind skipping this story (which I am still P.O.'ed enough about to write this review!), then it's a great collection (again), so go ahead and get the Kindle edition.
