Good Companion to the Grey Album (the only Jay Z album I love [heresy... I know]) 28 Dec. 2014
By Obscuralli - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I NEVER write these things, and I haven't even finished the book, but this is insightful material - or, at least, a clear articulation of critical information. Fairchild delineates the music industry machinations that led to Grey Tuesday and illuminates my incongruously apolitical experience of the Grey Album. I LOVE that he discusses the album in the economic and political context of both its release and the last 10 years. His blog at https://charlesfairchild.wordpress.com is titled "It's so much worse than you think". I agree. Our tastes are manipulated. We are exploited. But if we can still create and enjoy art with critical awareness of the 'situation', there's a slim chance that we - artists and audience - can turn the tide of this culture (slim, so slim, slipping through fingers...)
