This book is called the "black sheep" of the 33 1/3 series (the rest of the books are about the making of the title albums) but often times the black sheep can be the most interesting.
Meat is Murder is a narrative about figuring out relationships, death, high school, friendship, and music in 1985. Joe Pernice paints a really accurate picture of the kind of kid who would listen to Meat is Murder when it first came out. Any fans of indie music in the 80's would definitely appreciate the story. The audiobook is read by Neal Huff, who I know from watching The Wire. His narration is convincing (I think he's about the right age to read for the main character) and gives the characters depth without taking away from the underlying narrative about the album.
