Review quote

"The twenty-first century in Britain has begun with an endlessly debated "crisis" of national identity. Nabeel Zuberi's Sounds English shows lucidly and with passion that popular music is now the most important site on which the meaning of Englishness in all its liberating and oppressive confusion is being worked out." -- Simon Frith "A richly multi-layered perspective entirely lacking from most other treatments of the subject." -- Tony Mitchell, European Journal of Communicationshow more
