Da Capo's Best Music Writing 2007 is, like the other volumes from this series, an essential compilation of the previous year's essay's. Some online, some from papers, some from magazines, it renews your faith in the power of music critic's who can do more than just review records. I have my quibble's. Why 2 entries about Barbra Streisand, but no entires on Country Music? At the end of the book there is a section of Other Notable Essays for 2006, and some Country article's are there, but the editor's should've made room in the main section for them. Otherwise, if your taste in music reading extends beyond the review section of Rolling Stone or Blender, then pick up this book.
