Mixerman has a great laid back feel to his writing that really draws you into his world. A strange world, true. but you will feel like you're there, jumping into plush beanbags or cruising up the coast in a nice Corvette. You might even get annoyed when they don't pass you the fattie.

Don't get too comfortable though. It's not all about enjoying the life or partaking in some medicinal herbs. There is a message buried in these words that just might have some impact beyond the music world they are set in. Or, at least, we can hope it makes an impact, one day.

The life of the story is brought to your ears through a great performance by the author himself. There's no interpretation by the artist here, and it shows through. True to his moniker, the story, the performances, and the recording all gel into a great mix.

This book may not be for everyone, but I think most can enjoy it. It is a satire of the music industry. What it has become and where it may be going. Mixerman is certainly in a position to know how it all works and doesn't mind telling anyone who will listen. Thankfully, he is quite entertaining when he does.

Highly recommended if you are looking for a light read with a deep meaning.
