The staff at Pitchfork
list their favorite books about music.
"The idea of saying that any 25 or 50 or 100 music books are the "best" seems ridiculous. So this is not that sort of list. Instead, it's a list of 60 music-related books that explore the depth and breadth of our collective obsessions. There's no shortage of writing about music-- or ways to write about it-- and this is not a definitive be-all-end-all list as much as a starting point. All of these works lead to other worthy titles, undiscovered albums, and new ways of thinking about the sounds flowing into our headphones on a daily basis."
