“[A] fruitful collection of anecdotes and behind-the-song illuminations…. The charisma of Bachman’s book isn’t in the details—though there’s plenty of that—it’s in his joy of the telling.” - The Globe and Mail
“A brisk and engaging read…. Part of Vinyl Tap's appeal (both the book and the radio show) is his ability to provide an insider’s view of the musician's life. You feel like you're hanging out with Bachman backstage or on a tour bus.” - Times-Colonist
“So clear-sighted, so packed with detail and so fresh, even wide-eyed in tone.” - Winnipeg Free Press
“[Bachman] is either friends, enemies, or former touring partners with pretty much anybody who ever made a record, in history, ever.” - Georgia Straight
