Citizens, have hope and then glory in this book
on 15 January 2012
I bought a copy of this book for myself shortly after its publication and was so impressed with it that I acquired two more as Christmas presents for friends. Both of whom have subsequently reported on how much they enjoyed it.
What I like most about what Stephen has created is that he's not gone into forensic detail but written about the music and bands with a fan's passion and understanding.
It's very well written and easy to read and appreciate.
A 'must have' for fans of the genre, those who want to learn more about or for the many who were too lazy or blinkered to keep up to date with the burgeoning prog scene once Genesis and Pink Floyd called it a day (I'm talking about the people who only ever go to gigs when it's a tribute band to one of the aformentioned bands).
