One of the things I appreciated most were references to obscure, seminal, and seemingly unrelated artists, thinkers, and creators (like Åke Hodell or Jacques Attali) who might've slipped by my radar due to lack of internet presence. Every chapter sent me down the Wiki-hole at least once.
There's definitely some aesthetic bias running through the commentary regarding anything too "mainstream" or "pop" for the author's taste - which is also somewhat arbitrary considering that some of the artists profiled have contributed interesting music to the pop dialogue (see: Coil) - and the word "atavism/atavistic" is used with amazing frequency for some reason.
All in all though this is great stuff for people who think about thinking about music.
