It ends up being more focused on alternative rock than on mainstream rock, simply because alternative musicians tend to be more innovative and sincere than mainstream musicians.
Will Shogren rated it it was amazing Jul 20, Charlie Rogers rated it really liked it Dec 21, User Review – Flag as inappropriate Terrible book; self absorbed, intellectual above and beyond a flaw, frankly he takes the idea that good music comes from good taste and good ideals and amplifies it times, basically claiming that no band that anyone likes can really be good, so he finds solace in obscure and frankly terrible bands and music, while bashing bands like Radiohead and the Beatles.
This book is poorly written and bristling with arrogance. At least he makes heavy use of lists, so if nothing else, you’ll have something to compare your taste to.
