This is a great browsing book and unlike "1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die" i have heard of many of these. Subjective, as any book of this type must be, it is still a very worthwhile book to own--and definitely a conversation starter.

I love this book! It's like having your own personal record store! Every time I open it I come across a group/artist/record that I've never heard of but want to hear. It's really interesting to learn about the history of music. And it pretty much covers all genres and regions of the world. If you love music, get it!

After reading the entries very carefully from the mid-50's to 1969, I can safely say this book is a farce. Out of the approximately 200 albums listed for the 1960's as "must hears", there is not one Motown album mentioned, however the Beatles are seen as the Messiah of music of our time with just about every album released in decade as listed. What is not a Beatles album is a psychedelic piece of crap from everyone who dropped acid and booked studio time. Motown was a ground breaker. The United States of America barely got a record deal because it was crap, yet it is defended vehemently here. What a joke. I couldn't read anymore. R&B is summarized in a few token areas, and grunge rock takes over in the 90's. Racist? It's blatent. It should be renamed the 1001 Rock and Drug white music you must be too stupid to think represents great music.
