The 16 new books in the 33 1/3 series are going to blow your mind

As a rule, the 33 1/3 book series inspired by music and classic albums are a lovely, glorious experience in my world. Some volumes are valued more highly than the album themselves, and no, I’m not naming names, lest I get quoted in another series. The start of reading any of the books are always followed by a response – going back to the album discussed and giving it a second, third and hundredth listen, in some cases. One day, believe me, these books will be revered and deemed iconic as the albums being written about, if that hasn’t started already.

Without further adieu, the next 16 books in the 33 1/3 series will be:
