Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Robbins has edited the definitive guide to rock in the Nineties. Designed not as an update but as a companion to the fourth edition of The Trouser Press Record Guide (Macmillan, 1991), which covers rock to 1990 and is now available on the web , the book concentrates on the explosion of bands in the wake of Nirvana. Leaving mainstream rock workhorses such as Aerosmith, Bruce Springsteen, and Bon Jovi for the next Rolling Stone Album Guide, this work deals with the new directions rock has taken by covering hundreds of bands from Mudhoney to Yo Yo, from Beck to the Wipers. More than 50 reviewers provide generally incisive descriptions, placing the Nineties output of rap, alternative, punk, and metal acts in musical and historical context without pigeonholing. Robbins and his fellow contributors give readers an exciting view of the rock renaissance in its various forms during the last six years. Essential for anyone interested in rock'n'roll.-David P. Szatmary, Univ. of Washington, Seattle
