    DescriptionWhat did Time magazine consider the twentieth-century's greatest album? Which anthem by Prince was an attempt to emulate Bob Seger? And what links Count Basie and Batman? If you thought you knew your music, then think again. 1001Albums You Must Hear Before You Die, is totally revised and fully updated for 2013, and is the definitive guide to accompany your interest in music.
