Would recommend in the following order:
1) Art of the Sixth Sense - for maximum Cabs content
2) Tape Delay - for the sheer breadth of insightful interviews 
3) Industrial Evolution - for a entertaining narrative

Hope you're all keeping well,

I know I've probably answered my own question there, but with a lack of decent reviews of these on the internet, I assumed someone on the list might have read them.

I prefer ones with lot's of interviews and first hand accounts, rather than the odd fact with bits filled in between.
