Editorial Reviews

Relix
"One of the few regular publications to be dependently open to every type of music imaginable . . . More eclectic than ever."
Signal to Noise
Quite a celebration of the vast enterprise known as music.
Library Journal
National Book Award finalist Gaitskill (creative writing, Syracuse Univ.; Veronica) and music journalist, critic, and scholar Daphne Carr are guest editor and series editor, respectively, for this book's seventh edition, which assembles a dizzying array of essays and concert and recording reviews. Such topics as the Beatles, Dolly Parton, R. Kelly, punk, Thelonious Monk, reggae, Bob Dylan, and disco are covered by about the widest range of authors possible, from established voices like Greil Marcus and Robert Christgau to the best emerging music writers. Record reviews as brief as four lines are juxtaposed with lengthy essays, and all exhibit a great diversity of rhetorical voices and writing styles. For students of music criticism or music fans with a catholic taste in the art form, this book is an essential read. Highly recommended for academic libraries with music and/or pop culture collections; highly recommended for larger public libraries; and recommended for smaller public libraries.-James E. Perone, Mount Union Coll., Alliance, OH Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
