"In this fascinating study of dance music's formal, aesthetic and political properties, Jeremy Gilbert and Ewan Pearson team up to provide an authentic account of dance music. This is essential reading for anyone who considers dance music their lifestyle of choice."
"Gilbert and Pearson provide a fascinating, complex, and well-written analysis...the chapters on gender and sexuality and on technology are superb...it is sophisticated and important. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty."
-"Choice, April 2000
"This is a lucid, informative, engagingly written and stimulating work. It admirably covers a variety of different theoretical issues and takes off from dance to raise all sorts of questions about the treatment of music in cultural studies."
-Simon Frith, University of Stirling
..."contemporary, committed and compelling."
-Will Straw, McGill University

I highly recommend this book for the avid music listener. This book is great addition to anyones library. It may come in handy someday when you explain to your children, why you are messed up in the head.
Music, sociology, philosofy, history, culture and constant revolution.
A deep book that you will probably read twice if you like deeep analisys of music and people.
