Best Music Writing
This book claims to contain the best music writing in 2006.
wayne&wax's celebrated "we use so many snares" blog entry--in which he uses his patented "What's that sound like? Here's what it sounds like" technique--is featured. Go here to find most of the other chapters online.
(The "claims" above speaks to the book's claim to be exhaustive and/or representative, not to the excellence of the writing, which is assured, at least for wayne&wax's chapter.)
