As a genuine fan I opened this book holding the cynical belief that I would find nothing I hadn't read before. I couldn't have been more wrong. This boy has done his homework and it shows. The book works chronologically through their career and pre-career, covering all 3 albums and beyond. At the back there is a discography as well as a list of influences, songs of theirs that have been covered and songs they covered. The photos are excellent and really, if you are a devout follower, you shouldn't be without it. I did find that there were certain bits I had heard before but really all in all it's amazing how much they have squeezed in. If you want to know what the names of the iguana and the plastic crocodile on the inside cover of pablo honey are then you had better get this.
