    Rock journo Everett True has produced a bunch of self indulgent, egotistical, rambling recollections of the nineties music scene.Basically it s Everett talking about himself and glorifying all the minor bands of the era and slagging off most of the greats He calls Foo Fighters a pale imitation of former glories and dull and mediocre Then takes it a step further by personally insulting Dave Grohl with As a front man Dave makes a great drummer Mr True finds Alice in Chains is dull and morbid and said Pearl Jam had a butt kissing attitude and inexcusable arrogance that s rich and were merely a LA hair band like Poison or Motley Crue, given a fresh set of clothes and a bad hairstyle The rant continues with his critique that their albums were tame, unchallenging and ordinary rock albums.He then spends 7 pages telling us why he doesn t like Smashing Pumpkins and dismisses the RHCP as represent ing all I loathe about rock In the whole book only 6 pages are devoted to Soundgarden, with no insightful comments to be found, the only noteworthy quotes coming from Ben and Kim True dismisses Badmotorfinger as.merely a continuation of their overriding regard for Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi s fretwork The final nail in the coffin for me, was his comment about Chris Cornell s Euphoria Morning which called it an ill advised stab into Billy Joel territ...

    Some parts are ok, some not so much The writer takes too big role in this play and it gets really boring really fast Missed opportunity.

    There is nothing like the wit and sarcasm of a British 90 s rock journalist but Everett True is something else His reviews during the 90 s were memorable, unaffected,sometimes rambling, always entertaining and sometimes scathing He called out phonies better than what Holden Caulfield did although I do disagree with him in regards to Beck.Nothing quite beats his story about the 90 s because it praises the musicians that actually deserve to be unveiled K records, Beat Happening,Pavement, Babes in Toyland, Guided by Voices, Throwing Muses and The Wipers Those bands...
