    1. This was a difficult book about (at heart) a method or methods of sonically resisting (with 'melancholy') or feeding back into (by means of 'resilience') neoliberalism. I say 'difficult' because it's extremely academic and walks through a lot of high-level thinking, but in fields with jargon I wasn't familiar with. I found myself having to flip back because I kept forgetting (and have just forgotten again) what the acronyms used throughout the book stood for, exactly; a glossary might have been [...]


    2. I appreciate the several premises brought into contact here but struggle to see how they come together into an argument. But then I'm not the strongest reader of philosophy. Will re-visit / re-try in future.


    3. Illuminating and insightful. I have dozens of highlights I've been re-reading. This book has made me hear and examine music differently. I think my understanding suffered from a lack of academic/philosophical context/knowledge, but it pointed me in new directions and provided new lenses, and I'm grateful. Into the death with MRWaSP!
