- DescriptionFrom one of America's celebrated critics, the definitive field guide to listening to music in the age of the Cloud The most significant revolution in the recent history of music has to do with listening: it is w possible to listen to nearly anything at any time, to igre albums, and to instantly flit across genres and generations, from 1980s Detroit tech to 1890s Viennese neo-romanticism. Yet music criticism has historically focused on the musician's intent, t the listener's experience. Every Song Ever is therefore the definitive field guide to listening in an age of glorious, overwhelming abundance. By revealing the essential similarities between wildly different kinds of music, Ben Ratliff shows how we listen to music w, and suggests how we can listen better.
