    Bumping this thread to praise Bryan Charles' take on Wowee Zowee. Really terrific writing there; he covers the album, sketches out the Pavement story as a whole, manages to get great interviews with everyone, and does some really terrific stream of consciousness stuff without ever slipping into lazy self-indulgence. I am absolutely picking up his novel next. My second favorite book in the series thus far, behind only Carl Wilson's Let's Talk About Love: A Journey to the End of Taste.

    big star's radio city 33 1/3 book was very informative, as it had it interviews with most of those involved including the recording engineers, the band, and even alex chilton who rarely gave interviews.

    and, elliott smith's xo 33 1/3 was mostly trying to dispel the notion that the songs on the album came from a personal place, and the things written about elliott in the book Elliott Smith and the Big Nothing were off base. i wish it had talked more about the making of the album.

    This is truly one of my top albums of all time. To hear this and get something different out it each time is what makes it special. The Sordid Sentinels version takes it to the next level. I will dwfinitely be reading this.

    Maybe that's why this one took so long to put together. The title showed up a few years ago at least.

    The one on Meat is Murder is only around 100 pages. I've got 22 of the books, and the longest in my collection is for The Kinks are the Village Green Preservation Society, which clocks in at 150 pages. Exile on Main Street, which a friend left for me to check out is nearly 170 pages.

    They just closed the window for submissions on this next round last night. As of April 22, they'd only received 100 proposals, which was certainly a far cry from the 597 they got in 2009. I expect the number at least doubled in the final eight days they were accepting submissions, but I'd be surprised if it got anywhere near 597.

    The requirements were quite a bit different this time around, which I was actually grateful for. I think I learned a lot from the last time around, and while I chose the same album as in 2009, my proposal is a lot more focused.

    I expect they'll release a list of submissions in the next couple of days, which should be interesting. In the past, multiple proposals were received for the same album. I looked at a list from 2007, and it had Weezer's Pinkerton on it seven times. They commissioned one of those, and apparently it didn't work out because late last year they said it had been canceled. That actually happens more than I expected.

    From October 12, 2011...

    Weezer's Pinkerton - this project has been cancelled
    Wu Tang Clan's Enter the Wu Tang - this project has been cancelled
    Tori Amos' Boys for Pele - this project has been cancelled
    Funkadelic's Maggot Brain - this project is still alive, and partially written, but I wouldn't hold your breath...
    Outkast's Aquemini - this project has been cancelled
    The Clash's London Calling - this book is deeply, profoundly cursed. If you pre-ordered it in 2004 when it was first announced, I can only apologise...
    Lucinda Williams' Self-Titled LP - 90% written, but cannot be confident of a publication date
    Kate Bush's The Dreaming - unlikely this will ever happen, but not yet officially cancelled

    Not to kick a dead horse or revive on old thread, but I think that was release was proven to be false. Its somewhere in an interview with either Merzbow himself, or with Thurston Moore.

    Their final tally: 471. The list, not alphabetical, but rather in the order in which they were received.

    Reply to this old post.

    The piece you linked to states:

    Jonathan Lethem treats Fear of Music (the third album by the Talking Heads, and the first produced by Brian Eno)
    The parenthetical is false; Fear of Music was the 2nd Eno-produced TH album. I doubt Lethem wrote the blurb himself, but it's quite odd that a publication that wants to treat music criticism as serious business would get such a fundamental (and easy-to-confirm) fact wrong.

    My choice for one of these books would be Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works Vol. I and II. They're both so different and so mysterious - and RDJ seems to be wary of giving interviews - I'd love to get some answers.

    Yeah, I think I guessed like four or five of them. Gang of Four and Devo will be must-buys for me. Based on this, I'm gonna guess that the Danger Mouse album is pretty heady stuff, which is fine because the idea of that album is more interesting than the album. Probably too soon for the Kanye album, no? It has already been written to death about, and there hasn't been enough time to contextualize it differently yet.

    Colin Meloy's book on The Replacements' Let It Be was mostly self-indulgent dreck. I should not have been surprised.

    Franklin Bruno's book on Armed Forces was bizarrely organized but ultimately informative.

    The book on OK Computer was mostly OK (get it) though I disagreed with the author's marginalization of "Let Down" and got lost in the music theory places.
