Short, sharp and to the point, as a previous reviewer here has rightly stated, these bite-sized articles won't take up too much time to read, but they might get you thinking about why your own musical selections are so important. The content here reminded me of Nick Hornby's "31 Songs" - expanded to album format, so if you enjoyed that, you'll enjoy this.
One final note - even though I'm unlikely to explore some of the albums here, I can appreciate and enjoy the passion of the connection between writer and their chosen music, and anyone who can convey that link is worth reading.
Another great Kindle buy from Guardian Shorts - and for the money this is way better than most album review books you'll find in the shops, because it's written from the heart.
Those that are serious are interesting, but even then, very few of them give any insight into the music, more often a summary of a time and/or place in the author's life. If you know anything about the writer, this can mean something and make for a page or or two worth reading.
Other contributors chose obscure albums in a vain attempt to appear cool, but I suppose that is just typical of the Guardian.
