Book Review

With its appropriate anagram title Warm Voices Rearranged: Anagram Record Reviews presents a compendium of witty wordplay from the world of classic rock and pop music. There are almost six hundred entries arranged in order of artist. Both the artists' names and the titles of their albums are anagrammed to form apt criticisms of the pieces. Brandan Kearney and Gregg Turkington are clearly masters of their art. A good many of the anagrams in this book are wonderfully accurate in relation to the artists and albums anagrammed. Virtually every record review in the volume is negative but the authors explain that this is not their fault: "There is much to be said for the view of some sculptors, that their effort is not to shape a block of marble into a man, but to release the man trapped within the stone. Anagrams are not much different; one’s task is not to create, but to find something that already exists." The foreword of the book gives an interesting view of anagrams and their mystical connections. All in all this is an entertaining read, perfect for dipping into when you need a laugh. It's a must for any lover of words or music.
