I was disappointed. The book made me think of long nights in college, with a group of friends and lots of alcohol, etc., endlessly and pompously dissecting whatever music we were listening to at the time. Certainly fun to engage in and probably the pleasure increased depending on how wasted we were, but I can't imagine that it would have been all that interesting to someone else listening. There were enough bits that I enjoyed to move it up to a 2 - although, maybe that was just the nostalgia factor as I happily remembered and sang old favorite songs as I was reading.
