Year Zero is a satire of our dysfunctional music industry. It is also humorous science fiction story similar to “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.” Rob Reid has assembled a number of smart, yet funny or silly encounters that gels into a wicked paste that makes the story hard to put down. No matter how crazy the story gets it all seems to work.
