When Surface Was Depth darts through an impressive range of topics, but the most memorable proves to be the weather, which has an uncanny tendency to churn and gurgle whenever Michael Bracewell starts thinking about culture. As a professed enemy of debased signifiers, Bracewell would have been wise to skip the meteorological portents. When Surface Was Depth darts through an impressive range of topics, but the most memorable proves to be the weather, which has an uncanny tendency to churn and gurgle whenever Michael Bracewell starts thinking about culture.

The author in question is Michael Bracewell, celebrated surveyor of the punk and rock scenes. Now, through funny, engaging, and occasionally devastating essays about his experience in the thick of the music scene of the 1990s, Bracewell tackles a decade where Greed became disguised as Attitude, where a "cozy, urban feelgood fable" replaced punk, and where the role of anxiety, so intrinsic to the culture and music of the 1980s, was swapped for a shallow "I. feel your pain" sensibility

Michael Bracewell's The Nineties (or When Surface was Depth, for the American crowd) is an odd, long book. Certainly, one might expect the book to focus on the era that was the 1990s (even if it may be a bit premature to have much of a grip on that). But Bracewell seems merely to have cobbled together his journalistic output from that decade and pretended that makes it a book about the 90s.
