I will be upfront about the fact that I am a music fanatic, so my review needs to be taken in this context. After a 12 year lay-off, the Rolling Stone Album Guide returns with its 4th edition.

First, the positives: it's nominally the 4th edition, but in reality pretty much an all-new book, as it should be, given the 12 year lay-off. Reading it now, it's good to see that recent releases such as PJ Harvey's "Uh Huh Her", the new Libertines CD, Jill Scott's "Beautifully Human", just to name a few, are covered. The writing is generally well done. Be aware, though, that many of the writing is very opiniated. For example, Weezer's "Pinkerton" is rated 5 stars, above all other Weezer albums. Huh?

That said, there are a lot of negatives as well, unfortunately. Leaving out certain artists is a judgement call, but as to certain oversights (such as Metallica and George Harrison) I must believe that is was an editing error (I hope!). Other entries are incomplete, for example leaving out Natalie Merchant's excellent 2003 release "The House Carpenter's Daughter", Rod Stewart's 2003 "Great Storybook Vol.2" or the seminal 2002 Stone Roses compilation "The Very Best of the Stones Roses".

In the end, this pales to the "All Music Guide to Rock", the most recent edition of which was released in early 2002, but which gets updated constantly on line. The "Rolling Stone Album Guide" may be ok for the casual fan, but for the rest of us, this is not good enough (even though many of us will purchase it anyway or have purchased it already, like myself).

I'm as perplexed as anybody that artists like George Harrison (R&R Hall of Fame inductee for cripes sake!), Deep Purple, and Metallica were left out of this guide. True, no guide can include everybody and there will always be arguments about the omissions. But these omissions are so glaring, it seems that the editors were dozing. They should have known better. Omitting (for example) April Wine and upsetting a few 80's nostalgists is one thing, but omitting some of the most popular acts ever will get your book blacklisted.

That's too bad because, overall, this is quite good. Of course I don't agree with all of the star ratings but that's just the nature of books like these. Rather than focusing on a handful of reviews that you disagree with, focus instead on whether this book helps you gain appreciation of some artists that aren't in your collection and steers you towards their better recordings. In that respect, the RS Album Guide comes out a winner. Instead of moaning about how an album you love received less stars than you thought it deserved, you might find it more productive to read the entries on artists like Buddy Holly, James Brown, Little Richard, etc. and gain a little understanding of their historical importance to rock and roll.

My only warning is that every artist associated with punk or just sheer noise seems to be highly revered. But you'd figure that out yourself from reading the book. Just focus on the good parts, of which there are many, and enjoy. Even when you might not agree with the contents, the entries are almost always well written, so flipping through this book should make for several hours of enjoyment. Disagreeing with some of the entries is part of the fun.

If they had only chosen not to omit quite a list of very important artists, this culd have been an excellent guide. the writing is good but the absence of complete discographies is completely inexcusable. This was allways a problem with the red and blue editions previously but they should have tried to go for a more complete approach instead of listing only available stuff.

There is still a lot of stuff inside and if you combine it with the previous editions, the trouser press guide and some others you will be able to get a good overview of rock.

As a long time fan of Rolling Stone magazine's "Review Guides," I was disappointed in this latest edition, to say the least. Other Amazon reviewers have mentioned the absence of George Harrison, Metallica, Joan Armatrading, etc., which is bad enough, but I found many of the critical assessments in the book itself to be quite infantile. Some of the most important artists in the book were apparently designated to a third-grader. The write-ups on The Beatles, Neil Young, Radiohead, David Bowie, Steely Dan, The Rolling Stones and particularly Bob Dylan ("the valley of suckdom"?) are simply obnoxious. If the critic wanted to go for 'hipster irony,' it didn't work. Many of the actual ratings are on the mark, if a bit dramatic (yes, Morrissey's 'You Arsenal' is a five-star album, but that doesn't mean 'Kill Uncle' only deserves one star!).

If you could take the hip-hop/rap reviews from this 2004 edition and the rock reviews from the 1992 edition, you'd have a commendable review guide. Hopefully next time they'll get it right by including more artists (perhaps a two-volume set) and leaving the essaying to critics who have something mature to say ("the valley of suckdom"??).

I don't agree with half of the review there, but it still an interesting book to have in hands to discover new music.
