Christgau's Consumer Guide:
Albums of the 90s

Paperback, 2000, Griffin, 396 pages.

Book Cover From back cover: 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 has been left out--from "Subjects for Further Research" to "Everything Rocks and Nothing Ever Dies." Christgau's Consumer Guide is essential reading and reference for any dedicated listener.
