Reading last week's post, you might guess that I'm looking forward to reading Carl Wilson's new book, Let's Talk About Love: Journey to the End of Taste, in which Wilson forces himself to spend time with Celine Dion's album as a way of investigating the nature of his own taste. I've read excerpts and expect it to be a thoughtful read.
In anticipation of the book's release, the folks at Said the Gramaphone are each taking a page from the book and detailing their own "taste biographies." Sean offered his yesterday, and Dan on Monday, while Jordan pipes up today.
I'd love to offer up mine—if I didn't already do it a month or so back! In case you missed it, I did a post on the albums of my life. (I followed that up by talking about my "life-changing albums," which is different. First was Slint's Spiderland, then Drive Like Jehu's Yank Crime; I promised a third post on Low and never delivered, but I'll be making up for that later this week or early next week. Promise.)
