Listen To This – Alex Ross

More music writing from the music writing man in New York. This book is made up of a lot of his columns, some of them updated because they were written quite a long time ago (like the Radiohead one, which confused me to begin with because I hadn’t realised how old the original column was) and others mushed together into longer pieces.

And, like all of his writing, he makes you want to go and listen to all of the music as much as possible. I guess that’s quite an achievement. He even nearly made me want to listen to Bjork. For the record, I find Bjork annoying.
