“As always with books in this series[...] the read is highly recommended. It's enthusiastic and, in many ways, fan-ish, but makes its case clearly, logically and in an engaging writing style. I learned a great deal about the band's historical context and the decade build up to Flood. And, as I've already mentioned, reading it has led me to re-listen and notice details and connections I've never previously noticed. And that really has to be the aim of all writing about music - to inspire further and deeper listening.” ―Adriane Elmer, Cyclic Defrost
“Reed and Sandifer are clearly fans, and not just because they say so-their writing demonstrates a level of familiarity with TMBG that belongs to the long-time listener...Overall, Reed and Sandifer's Flood is a neat book. It's worth reading,not only if you're a fan of TMBG and/or Flood, but also if you're interested in geek culture and geek rock.” ―ProfAwesome.com

It was worth the purchase just to find out that it was DNA/The Lounge Lizards' Arto Lindsay doing the badass guitar outro for "Hearing Aid"
PS: Don't mistake this (or any 33 1/3rd book) for a long record review. You can get that on the Internet easily enough, if that's all you want. This is a fusion of rock-crit, personal essay, and cultural analysis, and it's as good as any of those genres get.
LINCOLN's still a better album, though.
