5.0 étoiles sur 5 I like it. 16 septembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Sure, album guides can always be criticized for one reason or another. Someone's left out, someone rated your favorite album too low, an album you hate is rated too high, etc. But the bottom line on "Musichound Rock" is that it does what it does very well. Nice scope of coverage. Nice writing. Nice pictures. Nice value. (This book weighs more than my first child and costs quite a bit less!!) Get the idea? Then get the book.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 none too good, I fear... 14 février 1999
Par GeoX - Publié sur
This was the first album-review book I bought, and as such I had no basis for comparison, but looking back I have to admit, it's really pretty awful. Instead of reviewing an artist's discography album by album, we instead have scattershot recommendations of a few albums (perplexingly glossing over a group's best work at times), and then a section citing albums the reviewer considers "bad"--interestingly, all artists in this world seem to have exactly one or two albums that are "bad", and very often perfectly good albums are condemned. Also, there's the unfortunate supercilious dismissal of artists whom the reviewer personally has something against. And of course omissions abound.
I'll admit I got SOME useful information out of this, but you can to SO much better. Get the AMG Guide to Rock instead; it's a MUCH better book.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 A Poison Pen Wrecks the Efforts of Graff & Durchholz! 27 janvier 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
On its face, this work appears to be a valuable contribution to rock and roll archival research. Indeed, the background information is intensely researched and the results well organized and displayed. But dig deeper. For example, superficial and questionable evaluations of artist's talents and contributions are numerous. I do agree that Bob Dylan's musical and social contributions have had a strong impact on various areas of the global society. As a Vietnam War veteran and American Indian, I know well his influence in anti-war movements and social injustice movements of the 1960s and 1970s. However, this book overstates his contribution by inferring that he was THE direct cause to ending the Vietnam War.
Another example of this books weak understanding of R&B artists in the pre-Beatles rock-and-roll era is the comments about Chubby Checker. The musical and historical resources are out there so there is no excuse for such uninformed vitriolic commentary. Dig deeper.
As a professional historian and "baby boomer," I shudder at what passes for research in this book. A substantial amount of effort went into this book, but in the more professional works that delve into musical history there is no place for the "poison pen."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very honest reviews. 20 mai 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Maybe the reason Ozzy fans are ticked off at Graff and Durchholz is because the biographies and reviews in MusicHound Rock are brutally honest. Sure, a lot of people will disagree with (probably) a lot of the artist write-ups and reviews. But I've found the material in MusicHound to be quite legitimate and very well written. MusicHound doesn't just pass bones out for the heck of've got to EARN them. If you like straight-to-the-point writing that tells the truth and nothing but the truth, pick up MusicHound Rock. It's a great resource, and a bargain at twice the price.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 If you agreed with everything, you would've written the book 5 septembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
I have to say that I enjoy books like this, but they are, as with any criticism, subjective. Many times their reviews are right on target, but I have to question whether they actually reviewed some of the albums listed. Example: If I Were A Carpenter is given a terrible rating. It's probably the best CD to come out of the tribute album wave earlier this decade. There are many questionable choices, but all in all this is a cool book, useful for helping build your collections.
