Not what i wanted but still good
I thought this was going to be music for piano as played by the original artists. however it actually also shows you a lot of the other instruments played on the original like all the synth instruments and stuff. This can make it quite confusing to play from if you just want to play the piano part, as there are so many different lines it's hard to figure out exactly where to go next eg one line of music might take up a whole page or it might take up half a page. very hard to follow. best use for this book would be for a band looking to copy an original sound - would be excellent for this.

Probably as good as you'll find
This book contains a good transcription of popular songs for purposes of piano accompaniment, without imposing the right hand melody and sacrificing background elements of songs. If you're an accompanist and can embellish as needed, this book will do the job of letting you play songs fairly close to the original while letting the singer do his/her thing. I recommend this book overall.

We need more in this series....
I am buying up this series one by one. Very impresive. This will challenge the seasoned pianist. I think some of this pushes into the realm of advanced. Benjamin is either crazy or my new idol for calling these intermediate.

Loyal to the recordings
If you want to play exactly what you hear in the recordings, this is the right book for you. I was actualy impressed when I saw it for the first time because I couln't find any important mistake, (you may find one or two notes out of place but they're insignificant alterations). So I highly recomend this book
