Phill Brown is not much of a writer, but as a recordist he is on par with the greats. The last two Talk Talk records, which he helped create and the making of which are detailed in his book, are still game-changers. Recording or classic rock geeks will get a lot of detail in this book that other readers will probably not appreciate. There is a clunky, no frills diary tone in the writing which some may take issue with. I personally appreciated the perspective his 40+ years of record-making gave him of the changes in the music industry.
As a read, there have been better books on the same subject matter. As a document of some of the most brilliant music ever made (including Bob Marley, Led Zep, etc.), it's fascinating.
