Those of you thinking this is a carbon copy of the Rolling Stone issue it came out of are wrong. The albums reviews are straight from the magazine. However, the editors have deleted or changed some of the greatest hits collections. This added changed about 10-20 albums that were not in the magazine. That reason alone made this a must-have for a list junkie like myself. Also enjoyable were the vibrant color prints of the album covers.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
