At a point in time when Journalism and Higher Education both battle to be economically secure, Hearsum uses interviews and analysis to suggest that two professions who use words to understand music - music journalists and popular music academics - can learn from one another to recognise that there will always be an audience for those who enjoy decoding music with language. By understanding the shifting position of the audience music journalism has a possibility of expressing its subject both engagingly and meaningfully.
