Barry Miles wasn't really qualified for that gig.
Weak book.

I have been seeking such a thorough and in-depth analysis such as the one inscribed within the pages of said book. Long have I waited with a growing nervous energy to delve into the unwavering discussion of the many shadings of the lyricism and musical motifs use by Mr. F. Zappa in his audio recordings that were impressed upon vinyl into a groove for which a needle would transmit these abundant sounds to the speakers of a hi-fi system wherein I would be covered in the aural splendor to which this tome attempts to cast a critical eye to the ironic musings and aeolian cadences of the densely structured blah blee bloh de blah *cough*

after reading 1 or 2 chapter's per week, finished this book and would recommend it ... most is very readable from a wide range of authors, maybe a quarter of it is unadulterated academic spewage

Interesting book and articles if your into the academics of FZ's conceptual continuity of musical textures as applied to high and low brow music. Sho' 'nuff !
