    1. I wrote a fair and balanced review of this, which features most of my key criticisms. But maybe it was too fair and balanced. Reading this was a nightmare:[popmatters/pm/books/re]

    2. Interesting & informative, especially about a particular perspective on american punk over the last 20 years, but fairly self-involved and fairly snarkily searing, which may be your kind of thing.
