    One thought on “All Music Guide: The Experts' Guide to the Best CDs, Albums & Tapes”

    1. The first and best of these guides. Though the number of albums listed can be annoyingly few for some artists, the reviews tend to be a lot better than in later editions--partially because this was written before AMG reviews were conceived primarily as enticements to buy; partially because the reviewers and licensed reviews were just plain better than they've become. Reviewer favorite albums in the front is a good feature they should have stuck with.

    2. There's a certain lowest-common-denominator homogeneity to the recommendations in this book. It's a slapdash hodgepodge thrown together by an army of freelancers and as such there's much to disagree about in what's excluded vs. what's included. But the scope is ambitious and it's fun to have something like this around as reference.
