Covers a wide range of relevant topics and gives in depth insights to popular music.
good book to aid those on course for reading material for extra reading and information
Interesting and detailed book which informs the reader about the historical factors of the music industry. It is easy to read and informative.
A refreshing and original approach to studying the music industries
This is an enjoyable read that covers a wide range of topics and genres around popular music. I've used this for Level 4 which seemed most appropriate, though Level 6 students did find the debates section useful and engaging in seminar discussions.
Very good to be used as an introduction of popular music and media
Well-written and engaging book. Insightful and covering a wide range of subjects that makes it essential for music industry/popular music students. A must-read, in my opinion.

Useful for our students studying the Music Industries degree as it gives a contemporary context and series of important subject areas for debate and discussion.
Tara Brabazon has written an insightful and accessible book that covers the majority of core concepts and issues reflective of current thinking around how one should study popular music. Highly recommended for any student studying popular music.
