Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Classic rock of the 1960s and early 1970s broke away from the harmless bubblegum and surfing music of the 1950s to become a vehicle for profound commentary upon the human condition. Theories and motifs from major figures in the history of philosophy, theology and literature were refracted and transfigured in this intelligent new popular art form.

From Library Journal:

Harris attempts to explain the philosophical meanings of rock lyrics, trying in the process to legitimize rock and rock writing. Dismissing Fifties rock lyrics as meaningless, he concentrates on Sixties rock songs, focusing on such themes as alienation, friendship, community, hedonism, self-assertion, judgment, and redemption. Harris connects these "big ideological issues" of rock to such philosophers as Aristotle, Freud, Rousseau, and Camus. Though undoubtedly highlighting some important aspects of Sixties rock, he never explains the direct link between rock and the classic philosophers, fails to detail the uniqueness of the themes he isolates, and combines all post-1950s rock into one undifferentiated lump. The result is an overly generalized and overly intellectualized study of rock that misses the emotionalism of the music. Not recommended.
