Joe Gross Austin Chronicle It's an interesting, entertaining look at an extremely volatile moment in time for the music business, not to mention a terrific ad for the book. May 31, 2024 Full Review Johnny Loftus Decider It’s an interesting chapter, the rise of file sharing, and music becoming untethered from the record industry’s traditional means of distribution, especially considering where we’re at today. Jul 11, 2024 Full Review Lily Moayeri Under the Radar As a music person, it’s enraging to watch How Music Got Free. The anger takes turns being directed at the CD thieves at the plant, the pirates and eventually the record labels. Rated: 7/10 Jun 11, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews
