Heres a sample of the books critical praise: The must-read collection reveals the inspirations for some of the most iconic songs from perhaps metals most iconic decade. Interviews with songwriters like Rob Halford (who discusses the Thatcher-era desperation that birthed Judas Priests Breaking The Law), Living Colour’s Vernon Reid (who explains how To Live And Die In L.A. and Peter Gabriel inspired Cult Of Personality), and Glenn Danzig (who highlights the irony of his anti-censorship screed Mother being twice banned from MTV), help you hear old favorites with new ears. –Rebecca Raber, Revolver,March/April 2010 Tellin g the tales behind the greatest tunes of 1980s, this mighty tome is packed with insights from the songwriters themselves, from Priest to Pantera and AC/DC to Megadeth. Flipping through, it’s almost as if Jackie Kajzer and co-scribe Roger Lotring have compiled ultimate playlist of the damned and then gone into fascinating detail. Most importantly, their love for the subject shines through brilliantly. This is a must-have addition to any self-respecting metalheads library. –Alexander Milas, (Editor), Metal Hammer, June 2010 (8 out of 10 rating)
