Review:

Larkin works virtually single-handed, and is to be congratulated on his achievement. (Liz Thomson, The Independent)

Without question the most useful reference work on popular music (Jools Holland of the previous edition))

Besides being a fascinating, arm-stretching achievement, this extraordinary work is testament to editor Colin Larkin's indefatigable belief in the power of music. This is simply a must-have for anyone interested in the broad church of popular music. (Patrick Humphries, Record Collector)

The ultimate pantheon of pop. (Record Collector)

Remarkably up-to-date...this is an acquisition without equal for all academic and public libraries and will easily replace either edition. (Library Journal. Starred Review (of the previous edition))

It is fun and informative, and essential for any library that serves readers interested in popular music. (Choice (of the previous edition))

The Longest love letter to music- (Tony Parsons Daily Telegraph (of the previous edition))

A work of almost frightening completeness (The Times of the previous edition))

Very possibly the best rock reference book ever (Q Magazine (of the previous edition))

Above criticism the meticulous accuracy is infuriating (The Guardian (of the previous edition))
