Praise

"Lovingly written and gorgeously produced... the first book published in the United States to survey the delirious landscape of Japanese rock... This is a work of visual art, about some very visual artists."


SFGate.com


"Stunningly elegant...witty...the first of its kind; an exciting first step..."


Centigrade-J


"It’s as if jrock, ink. itself were the work of that rare blend of talents that makes for a great band. Yun is front woman, with all the sass one would expect from a music critic for Baltimore’s alternative weekly City Paper. Designer Yelena Zhavoronkova’s brilliantly creative use of alternating margins and sparse, colored text not only gives the book a unique tone, it also makes nearly page-long paragraphs surprisingly easy to follow. It’s all rounded out by artist Yana Moskaluk’s full-page illustrations for each of the 40 bands summarized. This book is a must not only for the serious rocker or DJ. It’s also invaluable for students of modern Japanese culture and music criticism alike."
