    Rawkheads, pay attention. Steve Almond's passion - from his earliest (and most wretched rock criticism to his eventual discovery of a music-crazed soul mate and their subsequent productio of two little superfans - never lacks in translating his unrequited desires into a (sort) of noble obesession. Along the way, this drooling fanatic reflects on the delusional power of songs, the awkward mating habitsof drooling fanatics, and why Depression Songs make us feel so much better. While he sometimes tilts into the obnoxious, Almond can still kick the lucidity can right through your eyeballs. The dude rocks his writing. Go for sure. 222p.
