Burgess (singer of the English rock band the Charlatans) started a Twitter listening party that took off during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, where band members and creators live-tweeted commentary about their albums while thousands of participants listened and weighed in. This compilation explores 100 albums and archives a sampling of the tweets, providing song-by-song analysis with recording notes, insider views of backstage drama, and abundant photos and artwork.
VERDICT A sure hit with fans of Burgess’s listening parties and those interested in behind-the-scenes dish on music, musicians, songwriting, and the industry.
