Hyden balances anecdotes with phenomenal music criticism, and does more than I was expecting when I opened this book. Instead of merely a surveys course on pop's great rivalries, he digs deeper to discover what type of person takes which side, and why it both does and doesn't matter. Music fans both intense and casual will delight just the same in seeing petty disagreements about The Beatles vs. the Stones (#TeamBeatles), Taylor Swift vs. Kanye West (#TeamKanye), and Jimi Hendrix vs. Eric Clapton (#TeamHendrix) validated both intellectually and philosophically.
