The Guardian, London: "Sexy, all-conquering guide with big, brash entries colourfully written by opinionated maniacs willing to auction their souls merely to get the world to listen to their record collections." Todd Hawley (reader), San Francisco, USA: "I've looked through lots of 'rock history' books over the years. What makes this one different is that it was truly a joint venture by hundreds of different people and done mostly over the internet. They aren't afraid to comment on a specific band's strengths and weaknesses. This book chronicles histories of hundreds and hundreds of bands, and not just the most popular ones, but also a lot of the more obscure bands around."
