Subject: RE: music critics,do we need them?
Hmm, so ten lines of praise is a good review, but a one liner that isn't gushing is a bad review?
I think I see where you're coming from!
As for incongruity, it depends on the context. On a trad recording I'd find a Lennon/McCartney track incongruous, but on a recording showing the virtuosity of a particular instrument or a 'pop goes the folkie' offering, maybe not.
