The worlds biggest 'here, I made a tape for you',
This review is from: This is Uncool: The 500 Greatest Singles since Punk and Disco (Hardcover)
It's like a good mate has done you a compilation tape of his favourite tunes but there's 500 of them and he insists on telling you why he likes 'em all. This may not be to some people's taste but I think this is a great book. From the shiny repro's of old single sleeves you've lost or never had, to the comments about each song which occasionally move you to something close to tears but always inform and provoke. I've found a few great tunes I would never have listened to otherwise and had my faith in other tracks justified by knowing that at least one other person likes it.
Buy it, read it and hear it but watch out for the authors over-fondness of the Pet Shop Boys!
