Vol 2, the 80's, another Popoff classic
on 19 May 2014
It's still so sad to see the one star reviews left by people that must have been upset by Popoff somewhere along the line as the reviews are worthless and don't think they have read his books, just maybe a one off review of an album somewhere. Anyway, I can't praise his books enough as although I don't agree with many of his reviews, he mostly nails his analysis and has encouraged me to to be a bigger fan by listening to bands I would have otherwise not bothered with. The 80's was the high point of hard rock/metal and years like 1980 and 1985/6 are left strong in the memory making you wonder how on earth so many classics could come all at once. Popoffs preferences are obvious but he does justice to all areas of the scene and the sheer mass of reviews is once again breathtaking. Well done Martin and on a personal note, thanks for answering emails when I had geeky questions about certain things, you are a great person writing about what I love...
