Very opinionated, very palate-oriented, very political and surprisingly unpredictable. How useful this is as a guide to recordings I haven't heard still to be seen . . . Read full review

Review: Christgau's Record Guide: The '80s

User Review  - Bob Breckwoldt - Goodreads

Still, as perceptive as his reviews of the 80s are, it is not as essential as the review of the 70s. Though still worth it for the range of the works reviewed and the quality of the opinions expressed.Just don't expect to agree with them all. Read full review
