    Since when are Rise Against and The Academy Is... Indie? Answer me that. If it wasn't for "Emergency" on page 169, this would be getting one star. Since when are Rise Against and The Academy Is... Indie? Answer me that. If it wasn't for "Emergency" on page 169, this would be getting one star.

    I love poetry and this was the only real poetry volume I've read this month (April being National Poetry Month). The poems in this book are all from members of the indie rock scene. Love it!

    This was such a massive disappointment. So many poorly written poems full of pretense, misogyny, and even some racism. The few that were actually good/great were outshined by the worst over and over again and quite frankly, I’m more angry at the editor for deciding to include so many of these. As an avid fan of this genre, it’s sad to say I’m not surprised but christ, I kind of am. Wow. Just wow.

    I was very impressed by this book of raw poetry. The fact that it was not line-edited kind of tripped me up during some of the poems, but I still loved it and understand why they did not. I want to read the next one.

    "Indie" here mostly means various strains of punk rock, as lyricists from bands like Lagwagon, RX Bandits, Reel Big Fish and Motion City Soundtrack make up the bulk of the collection. Pop, indie-rock and metal get some love too. With 74 pieces from almost as many authors, the quality is varied, but most falls at average. The lows are quite low, but the highs are inversely as high. Bob Nanna's piece on how to keep a voice alive on tour keeps me coming back, and Nate Ruess' contribution of the wri "Indie" here mostly means various strains of punk rock, as lyricists from bands like Lagwagon, RX Bandits, Reel Big Fish and Motion City Soundtrack make up the bulk of the collection.

Bob Nanna's piece on how to keep a voice alive on tour keeps me coming back, and Nate Ruess' contribution of the written-out lyrics to "On Your Porch" gives the words a whole new gravitas. Worth buying for fans of indie-rock; not so much for fans of trained poets.

    My name's Brit, and I'm a lyrics freak. I bought this book a couple of days ago for $2.99 (yes really) and I LOVE it. This is a collection of poems. Words. Written by songwriters who have been stripped of their music .. I sat down and read it in one sitting. I loved it .. I need to read it again .. I have specific opinions about the individual writers .. I need to research their music and see whether they are better with, or without it (not that they'd give a f**k what *I* think but ...)

I love anything lyrical, and anything which makes me hungry for research.

    I ave never been much for poetry, but this book definitely got me hooked. Throughout this book the poems are all different. Such as, the length, style, and very descriptive. Definitely plan on reading the next book.

    I am not a huge fan of poetry just because I find it hard to follow and understand, but I really enjoy this book. The poems are all different styles and lengths and are descriptive, but not too difficult to understand.

    This is the book that really turned me on to poetry. I picked it up when I was about 14 at my school library, and immediately I needed a copy of my own. About half of the pages of this book are dog eared to mark which poems have been my favorites at different points in my life.

    All of the poems, stories, and artwork in this collection are interesting and beautiful. My favorite was Justin Pierre's. All of the poems, stories, and artwork in this collection are interesting and beautiful. My favorite was Justin Pierre's.

    I'm used to reading more classic poetry so I found this refreshing and unique. I'm gonna get volume 2! I'm used to reading more classic poetry so I found this refreshing and unique. I'm gonna get volume 2!

    I read this book almost 10 years ago, and it still travels with me. It's reminds me of my childhood angst and the moments of my life where each poem or story related and helped me cope.
