This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
academics with a need to analyze art works using psychological approaches (freudian theory) and philosophies (lacanian psychoanalysis)
Has Patti Smith's 'Horses' (33 1/3 Series) turned you off from other books in this genre?
Would you be willing to try another one of Steven Crossley’s performances?
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Any additional comments?
This work was dry an empty enough to suck all the meaning out of a work like the OED. I've appreciated others works in the 33 1/3 series. This one criticized Patti Smith's Horses album from outside the sensibilities of rock. I believed this made the work excessively dry and probably inaccurate. The author continually referred back to arcane philosophy (Slovo Zizek) and psychology (Lacane) to make his analysis.... yearning for the phallus indeed!
He did this at the expense of the rich internal experience of Patti's music. I do not recommend this book.
