If you want to read an amateurish memoir by Colin Meloy, buy this book. If you want to read an insightful, professionally written book about Let It Be, do not buy this book.
In a typical passage, Meloy spends several pages describing how, in the 7th grade, he went out for the basketball team even though he didn't really want to, then got put on the B team only to be picked on by other players. Meanwhile, his buddy competed for a spot on the starting roster. He concludes with a single paragraph about crying in his room after basketball practice while listening to Unsatisfied.
That is how the entire book unfolds. Stuff happens to Colin Meloy and sometimes he listens to a song from Let It Be.
I bought this hoping to learn more about the Replacements and Let It Be, but it was 95 percent (or more) about Colin Meloy's adolescence, and poorly written to boot. All in all, it's a deeply annoying book.
