    There s a wide range of musical genres covered in this book, which suited me just fine It s basically a selection of various articles that have been previously printed in a wide selection of magazines.Barney Hoskyns isn t the best writer in the world, and he does come off as a tad grovelly in places but I guess that s an occupational price , but he extracts some interesting insights out of his interviewees.Some of the pieces are woefully short, and others veer into the realms of being painfull There s a wide range of musical genres covered in this book, which suited me just fine It s basically a selection of various articles that have been previously printed in a wide selection of magazines.Barney Hoskyns isn t the best writer in the world, and he does come off as a tad grovelly in places but I guess that s an occupational price , but he extracts some interesting insights out of his interviewees.Some of the pieces are woefully short, and others veer into the realms of being painfully long, but as a collection it works quite well.I tend to judge these sort of books by the music they inspire me to go and listen to This one has me thinking about a couple of albums, so it s worked some magic on me, yet I don t feel totally inspired.So it s only getting three stars
