I remember there was mention about Colin Meloy of the Decemberists who wrote about the Replacements...(referring to series #16 "Let It Be" from the image)

Now it all makes sense. I'm a bit slow on the literary side of the music scene, but apparently there's been extensive writing done on some of the critically acclaimed albums of the past half century.

Caroline Bermudez from Pitchfork writes:
The Continuum International Publishing Group has announced 21 new titles in its 33 1/3 series, a collection of short books about beloved (and heavily scrutinized) albums from the last half-century. The new additions, to be published throughout 2007 and 2008, run the gamut from folk to hip-hop to proto-industrial. The authors are writers from all walks of journalism, criticism, and academia, including Pitchfork's own Scott Plagenhoef, Amanda Petrusich, and Drew Daniel.
