Wilson uses the 33 1/3 platform to talk about much more than just the album at hand, its contemporaries, or even the cultural landscape it was produced in. Instead, he uses Celine Dion's "Let's Talk About Love" as a jumping-off point to delve into the history of taste, American popular music, and what it means to listen to and love music. It's a fascinating read, and a thoroughly enjoyable one, for anyone interested in thinking critically about why we form tastes (in music, books, food, anything cultural) in the first place, how we form them, and whether the time for taste is over and a new era has begun.
