I picked this book up from Amazon for my Kindle for $1.99. Definitely a bargin at the price, and certainly a great jumping off point for anyone really wanting to explore music.

I have to say though; my feelings toward the book were tainted from the first chapter when the author listed Fiona Apple's second album (the incredibly pretenious one (oh wait, that describes ALL of Apple's music!) with the title 90 words long) as a recording I "must hear" before I die.


Fiona frickin' Apple? You included her over say, anything by Wanda Jackson? U2's "Achtung Baby"? What about some contemporary country music/musicians (which I felt was sorely lacking) like Mary Chapin Carpenter or Vince Gill? Eva Cassidy? I could go on, but seriously, FIONA APPLE? Give me a break.
