Reviews

"From many perspectives, this is a judicious and enjoyable book that will attract students, academics, and nonspecialists. Whiteley's blend of musicology and feminism with a flair for social pragmatism provides a platform for debate that is of significance top popular music studies... it stands as a model for stimulating the ongoing challenge of reading music thorugh textual analysis."
-Stan Hawkins, University of Oslo, Notes, June 2002
"Whiteley's wholehearted enthusiasm shines trhorugh even the toughest critiques of her subjects, and she avoids the all-knowing cooler-than-thou tone that often makes rock criticism (still a predominantly male field) difficult to swallow.."
-"Ms, Kathleen Anderson, May 2001
"This celebration of female musicians will inspire you to give a listen to all of your faves again and may make you fall in love with some music that you've never even heard.."
-"Ms, Kathleen Anderson, May 2001
