4.0 out of 5 stars Music captured in words, 13 Oct. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Needle in the Groove (Paperback)
We've all experienced that moment, when we emerge from the aural sensations of listening to one of those life changing albums, trying to contain our awe. Maybe its Radiohead's "OK Computer",U2's " Joshua Tree", The Beatles "Sgt Pepper" or Oasis' "What's the Story Morning Glory?". We've all then tried to tell the world how good, no, how phenomonal that album was, how powerful music is, and how from that day on, it has burrowed into our lives forever.

Jeff Noon's "Needle in the Groove" has come phenomonely close to capturing that once thought of impossible sensation, into words. Obviously written by a music enthusist, this is a tale of great beauty, wonder, excitement and energy. It bravely tells a tale of human emotions, how vulnerable we all can be, and how in the end, we can all triumph. With the common theme of music uniting the characters in the novel, Noon also uses music to link the reader into his heady tale, and comes up triumphant. Compulsory reading.
