Is It Still Good to Ya? sums up the career of longtime Village
Voice stalwart Robert Christgau, who for half a century has been
America's most widely respected rock critic, honoring a music he
argues is only more enduring because it's sometimes simple or
silly. While compiling historical overviews going back to Dionysus
and the gramophone along with artist analyses that range from Louis
Armstrong to M.I.A., this definitive collection also explores pop's
African roots, response to 9/11, and evolution from the teen music
of the '50s to an art form compelled to confront mortality as its
heroes pass on. A final section combines searching obituaries of
David Bowie, Prince, and Leonard Cohen with awed farewells to Bob
Marley and Ornette Coleman.
