Thread Name: music critics,do we need them?
Subject: RE: music critics,do we need them?
Jack,the point is this the reviewer clearly prefers traditional songs,perhaps he should not have been given the review,he doesnt like the Modern songs,but does he explain why? is the rhyming poor,are the tunes uninspiring?is the subject matter of no interest to him,it is a further example of a reviewer illustrating his musical prejudices,but not qualifing his criticism,in other words not explaining why he thinks the songs are poor.
perhaps if the album had been sent to a song writer,we might have got some constructive criticism.
