About the Author

Sean L. Maloney is a Boston-based, Nashville-trained music critic and arts journalist. His work has appeared in The Boston Globe, Nashville Scene and New York Magazine. He enjoys surfing, Sun Ra and Situationist cinema but isn't afraid to dig a Top 40 tune if it's got a hip beat.


[Maloney] gives us concise, incredibly perceptive examinations of each song in turn that fans will devour ... A sensitive portrayal of knowing outsiderdom that steers clear of cliche and enriches the album in question. * Record Collector *
[33 1/3] has been flying the flag for quality, book-length music criticism and commentary for some time now ... This book is certainly one of the most memorable and rewarding additions to the 33 1/3 canon; it takes a much loved album that for many is a solitary love affair, so intimate are its songs, and does not dispel its magic but offers the reader a greater appreciation of its merits. * We Are Cult *
