From Booklist:

A book of lists seems an extremely lightweight way to comprehensively cover anything, but there's surprising substance to this volume. What sets it apart from other rock-trivia titles is authority (Marsh is rock's most prominent critic; hip-hop expert Bernard provides street credibility), attitude (the often irreverent lists diss nearly everyone), entertainment value (it's more rewarding to read about than listen to "The 40 Worst #1 Hits"), and some genuinely useful facts (though lack of an index makes them all but inaccessible). The hundreds of entries (many by critics, musicians, and other industry figures) appear in such categorical chapters as "Firsts and Debuts," "Hits and Flops," and "History" (i.e., lists like "Worst Career Moves," which includes "Michael Jackson invites his playmates to spend the night"). Sure, it's a new edition of a decade-old title, but it has been thoroughly overhauled, and given the trendy nature of the subject matter, libraries that own the original should grab the new book to cover such interim developments as MTV, rap, and alternative rock. Gordon Flagg
