The Quietus is one of the best music publications around, so I was delighted to hear they were releasing an eBook. I was not disappointed. This is some of the best music writing I've come across; I often found myself laughing out (Aidan Moffat's love letter to Nicola Roberts is a personal favourite).
The eBook itself has an elegant and simple layout. Of course special mention must go to the hilarious illustrations from Krent Able. Any book that features a drawing that re-imagines Kraftwerk as a country and western band gets a tick from me.
If you love great music writing, this is a must have.

Having read The Quietus for a good 4 years now, I'm am so pleased that they have created a book containing some of the best music writing out there in the last 5 years. Diverse, unapologetic, always erudite and entertaining to have it all in one publication is a wonderful thing.
Perfect for reading on the bus/tube/ train, anywhere really! Enrich your life a little more by reading this anthology, and at only £5.14, it's one hell of a bargain.
