Christgau's Consumer Guide: Albums of the '90s

Christgau's Consumer Guide: Albums of the '90s Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Dean of American Rock Critics tackles the decade when music exploded.

The '90s saw more albums produced and distributed than any other decade. It was a fertile era for new genres, from alt-rock to Afropop, hip hop to techno. Rock critic Robert Christgau's obsessive ear and authoritative pen have covered it all-over 3,800 albums graded and classified, from A+s to his celebrated turkeys and duds. A rich appendix section ensures that nothing's been left out-from "subjects for further research" to "everything rocks but nothing ever dies." Christgau's Consumer Guide is essential reading and reference for any dedicated listener.
