Reviews

"Through immersive anecdotes and witty observations...we learn it's not just the 'song machine' that's brilliant but also the people churning the gears." -- Isabella Biedenharn - Entertainment Weekly
"Well researched...[Seabrook] takes us inside the troubled modern music business." -- Toure - New York Times Book Review
"Fascinating...lively, entertaining and often insightful, of interest both to pop mavens and to those who couldn't imagine caring about the latest hits." -- Christopher Carroll - Wall Street Journal
"Copy editors will rejoice at Seabrook's well-written and deeply researched book. He is a staff writer for The New Yorker and his book fits into that magazine's penchant for telling very detailed stories about things you might not notice about pop culture" -- Charles R. Cross - Seattle Times
"A fascinating history, one that encompasses everything from the Brill Building and Phil Spector to Afrika Bambaataa to American Idol. Running underneath the human stories like a bassline is the inexorable flow of technology." -- Kate Tuttle - Boston Globe
"Invaluable." -- Louis Bayard - Washington Post
"Brilliant." -- Michael Hann - The Guardian
"A fascinating look at how the catchiest pop hits are manufactured...You'll never hear Katy Perry the same way again." -- People
"Revelatory. This thorough dissection of the anatomy of a hit belongs on any listener's bookshelf." -- FADER
