1.0 out of 5 stars Out Of Touch !, June 27, 2001
This review is from: The Rolling Stone Album Guide: Completely New Reviews: Every Essential Album, Every Essential Artist (Paperback)
This is the 1992 edition of the rolling stone album guide . When it comes to reviewing the well known albums from the Fifties and Sixties , the so called reviewers seem to be on auto-pilot , churning out the same old rhetoric that we`ve heard a thousand times before , without adding anything new or interesting that could stimulate the discerning reader`s mind . Lazy journalism at it`s worst !

It is with the reviews of albums by key Eighties bands that this book becomes something of a joke , the reviewers are so out of touch they must have been living on Mars . Well established classic albums are consistantly given two or three stars , and the information given is embarrassingly sketchy and way off the mark ( Mark Coleman`s review of The Smiths , and J. D. Considine's review of The Pogues , is some of the worst music critique that I have ever read , they must have listened to these albums once , and that`s being kind ) .

Compared to the Rough Guide To Roc!k , The Trouser Press Guide , or All Music Guide , this Rolling Stone Guide is lazy waffle !
