Reviews

"Through these verses, readers learn of rock lyrics as poetry and of students' understanding in the art of performance. The students' majors are from every corner of the university, but their common denominator is a similar innate sensitivity and an art of craftsmanship. . . . These VPI students craft poetry from the sounds and even from the drug-induced ecstasy or despair in the performances, for they are able to sift the grain from the chaff. . . . A copy of this book should find its way to the Museum in Cleveland." - Richmond Times-Dispatch
