Great episode, missing one big genre though
1 December 2018 | by hastrumpetSee all my reviews

This episode was really quite entertaining. Any documentary about music is something I'm a sucker for, and this was a pretty good umbrella 40-minute episode for music in the 70s. My one complaint is that it completely skipped the progressive rock movement that started becoming big during this time. Bands like Pink Floyd, Yes, and The Who aren't really even touched on, which surprised me. It's kind of misleading since on Netflix, it says that prog rock is one of the subjects of the episode. Besides this though, it's a fun tribute to 70s music.
