Music Writer Carl Wilson Travels to the End of Taste on The Colbert Report (Video)


    Carl Wilson’s entry in the 33 1/3 series, Let’s Talk About Love: A Journey to the End of Taste, is one of the set’s best, as Wilson tries to delve into why people like Celine Dion and ends up questioning the concept of musical "taste." Wilson was on Colbert Report last night to talk about the book, and Colbert uses the opportunity to make jokes about Dion and her leather outfits (and tosses out Ogre Milk as a hipster pop band). Wilson seems pretty nervous, but it’s probably pretty surreal for him that as a music critic he would end up on a show like The Colbert Report. The interview is pretty good, but the book delves a lot deeper into the topics Wilson just touches on here.
