Read in July, 2011

As one of the earliest of the 33-1/3 series, this book didn't set the template for the following books, which is good. It's an overly general meditation on that point in the sixties that Forever Changes was part of and meditated upon. While some of the 33-1/3 books veer too far in the other direction of very granular, song-by-song analyses that incorporate production notes, recording history, band biography, lyric interpretation, etc., Hulktrans keeps focusing on the demise of the optimistic hippie phase of the sixties. Still, it’s an era that we’re still fascinated with, and I appreciated the hermetic interpretation of the album’s themes.
