This was really enjoyable and layered, I'm so glad I listened to it. I always find James Acaster really funny and tend to tune in to whatever he's doing. I was expecting something warm and funny like Classic Scrapes, but wasn't prepared for this book to be so oddly life-affirming. It was honestly quite inspiring listening about the artists including James whose pursuit of their art has helped them through some really tough times, but never dry as this narrative of the biography of each album was peppered with the kind of mad stories that James tells best.
