This collection of essays from the music critic for the New Yorker is a delightful grab bag of his best work (outside his contemporary classic The Rest Is Noise). The initial essay charts his personal musical growth from classical music to pop via the lunatic fringe of the experimental ends of both bleed into one another and where genre demarcations aren’t helpful. From there he covers Bach to Björk, Radiohead to John Luther Adams, Kurt Cobain to John Cage, with great stops on the way like the multifaceted effects of recording on music. ~ Reviewed by Dafydd Wood
