Keith Carradine is a skilled narrator with a deep, resonant voice and an all-American folksiness that would seem to make him an ideal choice for musician Neil Young's book. Sadly, the problem here is the tiresome content. The premise of this audiobook is that digital music (MP3s) has created an unnatural sonic experience, and we need to fix it. One solution that never caught on was Pono, Young's high-resolution audio company, and much of this audiobook is devoted to an account of the company's epic fail. Young cowrote the book with Phil Baker, who helped develop Pono. The coauthors alternate chapters, and Carradine attempts to duplicate each author's voice. But even this bizarre effort does little to enliven the material. R.W.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2020]
