Apart from not being what it purports to be, the collection contains some good pieces - and several bad ones. I love the piece by Lester Bangs on Astral Weeks by Van Morrison. It is very personal and insightful. The piece on Captain Beefheart's Trout Mask Replica makes you actually want to listen to the off-putting album more closely (plus the piece is one of the few that justifies just why this album should be brought to the island). The piece by Nick Tosches is well written and fun to read. The piece on Beggar's Banquet by the Rolling Stones is excellent (and addresses the core question) and, interestingly enough, goes on to explain why the author does not particularly like the Stones but how they convey some critical essences of rock on this album.Read more ›
