A masterpiece of disingenousness and ignorance 14 août 2002
Par Matthew T. Mason - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book, more or less, carries some facts in them. However, what makes this book fodder for the trash can is the several errors that run throughout the book, both grammatical (he refers to Alice Cooper as a "transvestite in women's clothing", e.g.) to factual.
(Case in point: Aranza refers to the infamous "Paul is dead" rumor as a publicity stunt orchestrated by the Beatles, with the placing of the "clues" deliberate. As anyone who has actually taken the time to take a closer look at this would know, the rumor was precipitated with false impressions, silly notions, and outright lies, none of which were on the part of the Beatles. Also, the whole thing hangs on the absolutely ridiculous premise that the Beatles would be able to cover up the death of a member, replace him with a lookalike, and inform the public by way of hints sprinkled in their music and album covers. But I digress.)
If by chance you see this book, or its companion volume here, or at a secondhand bookstore, give it a pass. You can find more serious and objective studies into backward masking on the Internet.

Yes, I agree, it's camp. A great, fun read 3 mars 2012
Par Son of Flintstone - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Reminds me of all the hub-bub when I was a college freshman and the zealotry of incoming change-the-world youth, record burnings, the mass phenomenon of newly minted "adults" using our fingers spinning albums backwards on a turntable (if yours permitted) to hear the secret mind control messages, while 18 year old's with ALL of life's great answers harassed me all over campus promoting the great new Keith Green albums (I'm still looking for Keith Green's three Gary Usher-produced rocker 45s on Decca; Gary Usher of hot rods, surfing, and psychedelic late '60s rock fame). Jacob Aranza faded into the background of this, though his two books about it, this volume and MORE ROCK, COUNTRY & BACKWARD MASKING UNMASKED (much more difficult to locate than the former), got a lot of traction. The folks who exploited this silly fad most successfully were Dan & Steve Peters, who also organized mass record album cover (not the vinyl, though--can you say toxic fumes?) burnings at their tent revivals on campuses. You might wish to check out ROCK'S HIDDEN PERSUADER: THE TRUTH ABOUT BACKMASKING Rocks Hidden Persuader (tiny little book), WHY KNOCK ROCK, IS IT BAD? IS IT GOOD? DOES IT REALLY MATTER? Why Knock Rock? Is it bad? Is it good? Does it really matter? (probably the most common in Christian mall chain corporate bookstores), WHAT ABOUT CHRISTIAN ROCK? What About Christian Rock? Facts, Opinions, Insights and Guidelines for Discussion, and PETERS BROTHERS HIT ROCK'S BOTTOM, EXPOSING TO THE LIGHT THE REAL WORLD BEHIND THE FALSE IMAGE OF ROCK Peters Brothers Hit Rock's Bottom: Exposing to the Light the Real World Behind the False Image of Rock (the most difficult to locate). Of course, you'll also check out Pastor Bob Larson's catalog, Steve Lawhead, John Ankerberg, Lex De Azevedo/Acevedo's Mormon-Christian (that oughta wake 'em up!) counterpart POP MUSIC & MORALITY Pop music & morality, and the epitome, the campiest, most entertaining author of all, fire & brimstone Jeff Godwin Devil's Disciples: The Truth About Rock Music! If your cup o'tea is communists-are-going-to-overthrow-our-democracy paranoid conspiracies, that middle-class campus folk singers in striped shirts strumming guitars singing "Kumbaya," Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, and the Beatles were the front-line shock troops for the Soviets, look up David Noebel's research.

I give this book, as well as the sequel, four stars, for the smallish nature of both volumes (114 and 130 pages, respectively).

Edit: Two psychology professors at Alberta, Canada's University of Lethbridge, Don Reid and John Vokey, academically (from a legitimate university!) debunked the effectiveness of "backward masking"/"backmasking" in February, 1983.

the good ol' days 17 mai 2002
Par Sinistar - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Yep, those were the days when it was fun to be a rock fan. The urban legends that where oozing from certain religious denominations could make young kids skin crawl!! Maybe since rock music has lost its cultural power is the reason why we don't get fun stuff like this anymore. Collectors may file this one with Dan and Steve Peters "Why Knock Rock?" and the assorted works of Bob Larson. Relics of a by-gone era indeed!!

A religious fanatic's campy classic 5 janvier 2002
Par Bryan A. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Rock music is spooky and leading our children to hell with its "subliminal messages." Or so the author would have you believe... This book is very, very funny, and deadly earnest. A bonus: some really great decadent rock quotes, used to bolster Aranza's view that rock music is Satan's tool. Of course, Janis Joplin didn't help matters by telling a journalist about her goals in life: [approx.]"to smoke dope, eat dope, sniff dope, and lick dope." Talk about giving ammo to the enemy! A comedy classic.

Great read, if you're looking for some laughs 22 février 2013
Par Jode72 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
My neighbor first gave me a copy of this book as a 14-year-old Alabama kid listening to Led Zeppelin because she was worried about my soul. I've been laughing at this book for nearly thirty years since. He even takes John Denver to task. Let me repeat that: this cat holds up JOHN FRICKIN' DENVER as a threat to the spiritual well-being of American music fans. If you have any friends who are music fans, or better still, musicians, give them a copy for the next holiday. Last time I looked, used copies start at a quarter - cheap fun.
