Biggins and Couch know their stuff when it comes to indy/alternative music and their insights, along with those shared by Bob and his collaborators, gave me a much greater understanding of and appreciation for Workbook and Bob's music in general. That the authors didn't share the same enthusiasm for the album-at least not at first-made it all the more engaging. Over the course of their conversations, they debate Workbook's strengths and weaknesses, sometimes coming around to the other's point of view, and sometimes not. And while the behind-the-scenes look at the making of Workbook was interesting enough, the parts I found most meaningful were when the authors discussed how the album's themes have been reflected in their own lives, which prompted me to do the same.
If you are considering this, read See a Little Light: The Trail of Rage and Melody and Our Band Could Be Your Life: Scenes from the American Indie Underground 1981-1991 first. And you already have Workbook 25, right? The liner notes there are pretty detailed.
