Wishy-washy style and lack of insight,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Neutral Milk Hotel's In the Aeroplane Over the Sea (33 1/3) (Paperback)
Unfortunately this book is one of the weakest of the 33 1/3 series. So many of the others books are more engaging. Some put us in the head of people who were growing up at the time of a record coming out, others look in-depth at an album and a band. This book does neither, really being all about how they care for each other a lot and move from here to there to there in the country, giving nothing in the way of vignettes to give us a glimpse of how they are or what it was like. The attempts at analysis finally come but there's such a lack of confidence and they are so sketchy that it's hardly worth it after all. In contrast, Meat Is Murder, Let It Be (Replacements), The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society and Doolittle are all a great read.
