5つ星のうち 5.0 For those who are new or want to learn more about JROCK... 2009/1/19

jrock, inc. is without a doubt the best book that I could recommend to someone who is new to JRock and even to those who want to learn more about the genre. While I feel like some better artists could have been featured in the book, I can see why Josephine Yun selected them. The intro at the beginning of the book is worth the books price alone -- Her choice of words throughout the pages glued me to the book... It's not your typical biography styled writing (which is hard enough to write as it is when you are on the subject of music). The artwork in the book is absolutely gorgeous and very unique. At the New York Anime Festival (2007) I had the pleasure of meeting and getting my book signed by Josephine -- She said that she was in the works of a second book. I hope it includes Plastic Tree!
This book is definitely something you want in your JROCK collection!

5つ星のうち 4.0 A decent introduction into the world of Jrock 2006/7/14

I received this book as a gift. After reading the title, I instantly checked the bottom of list of bands mentioned to see if X JAPAN was there. To my satifaction they were. That gave me the feeling that this would be a decent book to say the least. Including X JAPAN proves that the author did their homework.

After reading it, I can honestly say that it is fairly good, especially for those that have no exposure to jrock or any of the earlier bands from the '80s. After reading the other reviews, I can agree with them about the major complaint being the section on Gackt. Being a huge Dear, I was a bit upset but at the same time Gackt has accomplished so much. Since this was not a biography, items were bound to be left out. I think it could have been written better.

The biggest suprise and joy for me were the sections on Due' le Quartz and Miyavi- more so Miyavi. The author remembering the huge impact DLQ had on the indie scene for such a brief period impressed me, others might not even remember them. The fact that she gave Miyavi his own section proves his increasing growth and finally his acceptance into the music scene as a solo artist. Miyavi is my favorite artist so seeing him included really made me squeel like a fangirl.

All in all, it is a fairly decen complilation. Nothing is perfect but it is good for anyone wanting to learn about the genre or for fellow jrock fans to refresh their memories and share their interest with friends.

5つ星のうち 1.0 Berift of Factual Information 2005/10/18
投稿者 SV - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック
As excited as I was at the annuoncement of a book on the top 40 acts in Japan, this has been a huge disappointment. I've been a fan of this scene since 1999, and I only dreamed that something like a print lexicon on JRock would happen, though now that it has, it leaves a bitter taste in my mouth.

This book could have been written by the most casual of JRock fans. The highly styalized illustrations in the book, while very well done, sometimes misrepresent the bands. For example, Dir en Grey's illustration is from about five years ago. They are a totally different band from that time. She states about three actual facts in Dir en Grey's section, and the rest is telling and retelling how dark their music is. The other sections, such as La'cryma Christi and Buck Tick, are like this as well. This isn't so much a factual book about the Top 40 Music Acts in Japan, as a livejournal-esque review, filled with more opinion than substance. Some of the entries can even be misleading and misrepresentational of the bands, such as Psycho le Cemu's section.

Some bands in there shouldn't have been in there at all. As much as fans in the West loved Due le Quartz, they did not impact the Japanese music scene. They were an upper-tier indies band that had even gained a decent sized fanbase in the West, but that should not have warrented them an entry into the Top 40 Music Acts in Japan. Duel Jewel, as much as I love them and believe that one day they will be something, should not have been entered either. They were influential in the West as they were the first Visual Kei band to start doing the con scene in America (which later led to bigger acts Pysho le Cemu and L'arc en Ciel comming to perform at cons as well), but they have not yet impacted the Japanese music scene. They are still quite indies. She really should have titled this book something else if she wanted to include bands like these. These had an impact on the Western side of the JRock fandom much more than the Japanese.

This book had the potential to be something really really good, but it blew it. I really don't want new fans of the genre to read this and get the wrong ideas and mistake this woman's opinions as facts. I regret spending my money one this, and plan on sending it back to this woman, with a loose-leaf sheet of paper between each page stating all of her misstatements (which will be a daunting task, as there are many). Perhaps next time JRock fans will get something that give is the real facts about these bands that they may not be able to find elsewhere if they can't read Japanese.

5つ星のうち 5.0 A 'must' for any alternative or indie world music fan who would better understand modern Japanese musicians 2006/6/23
投稿者 Midwest Book Review - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック
Imagine a geisha playing electric guitar, or a koto performer flipping the bird. Imagine a 3-piece high school band called Mr. Children whose long-term success allowed it to evolve from a school band to number 1 on the Japanese record charts. Imagine Japanese indie rock performer who mix punk elements with Japanese. Add a healthy dose of fun drawings throughout and you have a survey of Japanese pop rock culture not to be missed: a 'must' for any alternative or indie world music fan who would better understand modern Japanese musicians.

I absolutely loved this book! While I'm familiar with most of the bands in it, it's a nice collector's item as well as a great buy for those of us across the ocean. Fantastic job! Not to mention the fact that we overseas fans finally get a more precise and detailed description.
