Instead, what the writer does is paraphrase the songs HORRIBLY, even negatively reviewing classics such as "Sing for the Moment", stating that it "sprials into dizzying realms of guff", or take "My Dad's Gone Crazy", where he claims that 6-year-old Hailie Jade sounds "disturbing, the way she's looped into the mix".
Look, if I wanted to read someone's personal opinion of every Em track, I'd make sure it was someone who actually understood and appreciated the substance of the content. This writer makes it so apparent that he's just trying to collect a check that he even misspells certain tracks, like "Drugs Ballad".
As Em's #1 fan, I can say in all honesty that I could have written a more concise, thoughtful, and respectful account of his songs with more interesting facts and details on things other than just literal paraphrases. What about the production? What about the process? What about the multisyllabic structures?
Speaking of Drug Ballad, there is a snippet quote from Em stating he "turned it out in 20 minutes". If there was ever an interview that took place between these two personas, I hope the writer realizes Em was totally messing with him the whole time.
I read 1/3 of this book and then wiped my a** with page 107 and hung the color photos from the center of the book on my fridge.
