The Spin Alternative Record Guide is a music reference book compiled by the American music magazine Spin and published in 1995 by Vintage Books. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_0

It was edited by rock critic Eric Weisbard and Craig Marks, who was the magazine's editor-in-chief at the time. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_1

The book features essays and reviews from a number of prominent critics on albums, artists, and genres considered relevant to the alternative music movement. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_2

Contributors who were consulted for the guide include Ann Powers, Rob Sheffield, Simon Reynolds, and Michael Azerrad. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_3

The book did not sell particularly well and received a mixed reaction from reviewers in 1995. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_4

The quality and relevance of the contributors' writing were praised, while the editors' concept and comprehensiveness of alternative music were seen as ill-defined. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_5

Nonetheless, it inspired a number of future music critics and helped revive the career of folk artist John Fahey, whose music was covered in the guide. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_6

Content Spin Alternative Record Guide_section_0

Spanning 468 pages, the Spin Alternative Record Guide compiles essays by 64 music critics on recording artists and bands who either predated, were involved in, or had developed from alternative rock. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_7

Each artist's entry is accompanied by their discography, with albums rated a score between one and ten. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_8

Unlike the third and most recent edition of The Rolling Stone Album Guide (1992), which limited its discographies to albums currently in-print on CD, the Spin Alternative Record Guide offered more comprehensive album discographies. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_9

The entries are accompanied by album artwork. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_10

The book's editors, critic Eric Weisbard and Spin editor-in-chief Craig Marks, featured contributions from noted journalists and critics such as Charles Aaron, Gina Arnold, Michael Azerrad, Byron Coley, Ann Powers, Simon Reynolds, Alex Ross, Rob Sheffield, and Neil Strauss. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_11

Sheffield wrote the bulk of the guide's entries, while Powers "allowed her home to become command central on the book for many months". Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_12

Though he did not contribute his own writing, Robert Christgau assisted in the creation of the guide by loaning out records from his personal collection as needed. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_13

The contributors curated an overall "Top 100 Alternative Albums" list in an appendix, ranking the Ramones' 1976 self-titled debut album at number one. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_14

A few dozen personal top-ten record lists from contributors and musicians are interspersed throughout the book. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_15

The musicians who provided their own top-ten lists are Mark Arm, Lori Barbero, Lou Barlow, Kurt Bloch, King Coffey, Digable Planets (members Craig "Knowledge" Irving and Mariana "Ladybug" Vieira), Tanya Donelly, Greg Dulli, Gordon Gano, Greg Graffin, Kristin Hersh, Georgia Hubley, Calvin Johnson, Jon Langford, Courtney Love, Barbara Manning, Mac McCaughan, Buzz Osborne (listed as King Buzzo), Joey Ramone, Jim Reid, Lætitia Sadier, Sally Timms, Steve Turner, and Josephine Wiggs. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_16

Scope and definition of "alternative" Spin Alternative Record Guide_section_1

Even by the standards of the time, the Spin Alternative Record Guide took an unusually inclusive approach to the boundaries of what "alternative" could mean. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_17

Before 1991, the genre "alternative rock" conventionally referred to post-punk and college rock. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_18

Within a few years, "alternative" had broadened into a catchall term for any rock bands outside the mainstream, regardless of their particular style—even as, paradoxically, "alternative" music became hugely popular and commercially successful. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_19

As a result, "alternative" was increasingly derided as a vague or even incoherent category. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_20

As summarized by the scholar Gayle Wald, the book's introduction defined "alternative" rock as "an aesthetic that disavows, or evinces critical mistrust of, earlier rock subjectivities as well as the music industry itself". Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_21

Rather than limiting its scope strictly within the musical genre of "rock" per se, the guide's coverage encompassed a wide range of non-rock artists who had adopted an anti-commercial stance or were aligned with a particular subculture. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_22

In an introductory essay titled "What Is Alternative Rock? Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_23

", Weisbard explored the genre's origins and, more broadly, "alternative sensibilities" in other musical traditions. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_24

"Alternative rock lacks the proud boundaries that rock's original tradition kept so well guarded", he wrote: Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_25

The book's selection of music was shaped by the generation gap between the baby boomers and Generation X. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_26

Marks said he and Weisbard "saw [the book] as a way to give definition to second-generation rock 'n' roll". Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_27

In this respect, the book was both intended and received as a generational counterpoint to The Rolling Stone Album Guide. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_28

The guide spans 379 entries in total. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_29

An entry in the book typically covers a single artist or band; a set of closely affiliated artists; a multi-volume series of various artists compilations; or a selected discography representing an entire musical genre. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_30

Records in the guide were chosen from a variety of genres considered relevant to alternative music's development. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_31

These include 1970s punk rock, 1980s college rock, 1990s indie rock, noise music, reggae, electronic, new wave, heavy metal, krautrock, synthpop, disco, alternative country, hip hop, grunge, worldbeat, and avant-garde jazz. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_32

Acknowledging the possibility that their selections and exclusions would be objectionable to some readers, Weisbard wrote the following in the introduction: "Not all these choices are defensible: As stated at the onset, alternative lacks strong boundaries. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_33

But we had to draw the line somewhere." Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_34

Weisbard and Marks said the book was meant to be "suggestive" of alternative music, rather than "comprehensive". Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_35

Most artists associated with classic rock are excluded. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_36

For example, the guide omits the Beatles, the Beach Boys, Cream, Peter Gabriel, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, the Rolling Stones, Van Halen, and Frank Zappa—even though each of these artists meaningfully influenced "alternative" music to some extent. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_37

However, a handful of artists associated with the "classic rock" era can be found in the guide, among them Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, Neil Young, and AC/DC. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_38

A range of mainstream pop artists spanning a variety of styles are given entries, including Culture Club, Duran Duran, and Lenny Kravitz. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_39

Some pop musicians are afforded prominent placement and a perhaps surprisingly high degree of acclaim. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_40

For instance, the very first alphabetical entry is the Swedish pop supergroup ABBA. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_41

Madonna's 1990 greatest hits album The Immaculate Collection is ranked as the 11th best alternative record. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_42

Other non-rock artists reviewed in the book include jazz composer Sun Ra, country singer-songwriter Lyle Lovett, and Qawwali singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_43

Rating system Spin Alternative Record Guide_section_2

Records received a rating between 1–10 points based on the judgment of the reviewer. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_44

A red dingbat beside a record's title indicated that it also appeared in the Top 100 at the back of the book. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_45

Several records in the Top 100 received a score lower than 10, while many records that received a 10 did not appear in the Top 100, because an individual reviewer's assessment could conflict with the list's collective consensus (and vice versa). Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_46

Still, there was some editorial oversight and control of the ratings, as Weisbard later explained: Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_47

Records that received a 10 Spin Alternative Record Guide_section_3

The following 172 records received the guide's highest score from the reviewer who rated the discography of the given artist, compilation series, or genre. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_48

A record with a 10 was deemed to be either "[a]n unimpeachable masterpiece or a flawed album of crucial historical significance". Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_49

Publication and reception Spin Alternative Record Guide_section_4

In October 1995, Vintage Books published the Spin Alternative Record Guide in the United States. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_50

It was the first book compiled by Spin. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_51

After nine years , the magazine had its first profitable year in 1994. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_52

Looking to expand into other print media, its founder and publisher Bob Guccione Jr. struck a deal to publish three books through Vintage. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_53

Its release was roughly timed to commemorate the magazine's 10th anniversary. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_54

The book's suggested retail price was US$20 (equivalent to $34 in 2019). Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_55

The price was comparable with its competitors, with most music reference books coming in at or below $25 in 1995. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_56

It was published simultaneously by Random House of Canada, where it retailed for CA$27.95 (equivalent to $43 in 2018). Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_57

According to Matthew Perpetua, the guide was reportedly "not a huge seller". Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_58

Reviewing the book in 1995, Adam Mazmanian from Library Journal recommended the Spin Alternative Record Guide to "both public and academic libraries". Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_59

He found its reviews superior in "length and scope" to The Rolling Stone Album Guide (1992), which also offered complete discographies of artists ranging from Jonathan Richman to Throbbing Gristle. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_60

Mazmanian further argued that "this guide fills a gap in the literature of modern music" at a time when "alternative" has developed a ubiquitous presence in the marketing of popular music. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_61

In New York magazine, Kim France called it "a well-edited, unpretentious, and comprehensive look at all the crazy stuff the kids are listening to these days". Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_62

Matt Kopka of Publishers Weekly wrote that Spin's guide "may be as close to a surefire hit as the season can offer". Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_63

Booklist critic Gordon Flagg was more qualified in his praise. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_64

He applauded the accuracy of the artist entries and the quality of the contributors' reviews, but found Weisbard's conception of "alternative" ill-defined and recommended The Trouser Press Record Guide (1991) as a more comprehensive option. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_65

Even more critical was Billboard magazine's Beth Renaud, who called much of the writing biased and the organization unencyclopedic. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_66

She said Weisbard's "obligatory" essay is outdated and vague in defining alternative rock and that the contributors "gush" over artists usually covered by Spin's magazine publication, with many relevant artists omitted in place of more perplexing additions. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_67

In a 1999 survey of various music guides for the Riverfront Times, Jason Toon labeled the Spin Alternative Record Guide as a "must to avoid" and dismissed it as a "flimsy, shallow ... slicked-up cash-in job". Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_68

Influence and reappraisal Spin Alternative Record Guide_section_5

Having edited the book, Weisbard put his pursuit of a PhD at UC Berkeley on hold and accepted a job offer from Spin, which marked the beginning of his career as a rock critic. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_69

Meanwhile, the guide's entry on folk guitarist John Fahey introduced his music to a new generation of listeners. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_70

His entry in the guide was written by Byron Coley, who had previously profiled Fahey for Spin in 1994 at a time when the musician lived in reclusion and was commonly believed to be dead. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_71

According to Ben Ratliff at the New York Times, Coley's writings helped revive Fahey's career by drawing renewed attention from record labels and the alternative scene. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_72

For his part, Fahey appreciated the guide's effect on his career and especially its association of his music with contemporary alternative subculture. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_73

With the arrival of a younger audience, Fahey felt vindicated in his long-standing misgivings about the marketing of his back catalog to an older demographic of listeners interested in traditionalist folk and new-age music. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_74

He wrote about the Spin guide in the liner notes of his 1997 album City of Refuge: Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_75

The book has been cited as a bellwether of trends in critical consensus from the time of its publication. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_76

For example, the book's favorable treatment of ABBA marked a significant step in the revival of the band's reputation among critics. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_77

While ABBA had always been massively popular on an international scale, earlier critics had tended to dismiss their music as frivolous, unhip, or otherwise unworthy of serious attention. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_78

Conversely, the guide's omission of the English band Talk Talk—who had released commercially successful synth-pop before adopting an experimental approach on their last two albums, which were later seen as forebears of post-rock—signaled the low point of that group's reputation among American critics. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_79

The Spin Alternative Record Guide was a landmark in the construction of an "alternative canon", alongside The Trouser Press Record Guide and Martin C. Strong's The Great Alternative and Indie Discography. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_80

It exerted a major influence on the next generation of music critics. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_81

American pop culture critic Chuck Klosterman cited the Spin Alternative Record Guide as one of his five favorite books, saying in 2011, "I fear this might be out of print, but it's probably my favorite music book of all time. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_82

Since its 1995 publication, I doubt a year has passed when I didn't reread at least part of it." Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_83

In response to a question from a 2019 interview with The New York Times Book Review, Klosterman named it as the one book he would require Donald Trump to read, providing no further explanation of his choice. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_84

Robert Christgau wrote that while most music guides and encyclopedia books were unremarkable, the Spin Alternative Record Guide was one of the few "useful exceptions" because of what he felt was the "sharpest writing" from contributors such as Weisbard and Sheffield. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_85

Idolator's Chris Molanphy, on the other hand, said in retrospect that the book's list of the 100 best albums catered to "hipper, Gen-Xier tastes". Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_86

In 2011, the Spin Alternative Record Guide was included in the Pitchfork staff's list of their favorite music books. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_87

In an essay accompanying the list, Perpetua said the book's writers—either top critics at the time or those who have since become important figures in music journalism—outline the "alternative sensibility" by recognizing and connecting music from disparate genres in "an inclusive, open-minded survey, but it's defined as much by what's left out—pretty much all Boomer-oriented rock—as what it includes." Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_88

According to Perpetua, the "number of young readers [who] pursued music criticism" because of the book was far greater than the copies it sold. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_89

Matthew Schnipper, editor of The Fader, bought the book after it was published and said he used it as a consumer guide for 10 years. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_90

Along with its influence on future critics, the book was cited by guitarist William Tyler as his only source of music education growing up in the pre-Internet age, having found it in a bookstore around the time it was published: "They had entries for all these different people that I had never heard of: Can, John Zorn, [John] Fahey, whatever." Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_91

Contributors Spin Alternative Record Guide_section_6

The full list of 64 contributors appears at the back of the book. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_92

Each write-up in the guide has a single author with the exception of the entry on the 1976 album Have Moicy! Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_93

and its associated artists, co-written by Marks and Salamon. Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_94

The table below notes the number of entries written by each contributor, as well as the number-one record on their top ten list (if one was provided). Spin Alternative Record Guide_sentence_95
