Any book like this will please cause controversy but it is NOT trying to say that these are the best songs of all time (we all have different opinions) but provides an interesting selection of songs with brief commentary on why they are significant. While I don't always agree with the choices or comments, it is an intriguing book for people interested in modern music and is likely to introduce you to some songs you didn't know about but enjoy when you hear them.

Like the other books in the 'before you die' series, this provides brief comments on why the authors find the albums significant. You don't have to agree with the selections to enjoy this book as you are certain to be introduced to albums which you haven't heard or find out new information about those you know. at £10 it's great value.

good gift idea, massive book, but there is always someone who disagrees with the authors choices. Quick delivery and recommend.

Ok, this is a heavy book phisically, but you'll find inside many hints about what to hear, with descriptions for every album.
You should be curious with music, anyway, as this book describes topical albums from the 50s to today. Even those not so popular, but that worth a listen.

Great reading and tremendous value. Bought for me as a Christmas present. Perfect dip and dip out book. If you see it for £10 snap it up - a bargain at that price. Of course, you may have a different view to the authors but that is part of the fun. It is my intention to try and listen to all of them.

Bought this for my husband on recommendation of a friend. Really informative, arrived as expected though heavier than I though.

Fabulous book which has given my endless love affair with Spotify a new focus. Thorough biogs of each band, not an endless list. Wish Id bought 1001 singles . . . .. .. . maybe later.

Excellent resource. I've had previous editions and is always a joy to find new and unknown artists.
