Thread Name: music critics,do we need them?
Subject: RE: music critics,do we need them?
Okay, S. I'm happy to accept that you agree that critics serve an important function and when they do their job well, they perform a necessary and useful service. It appeared to me you were saying the opposite, but I'm happy to stand corrected if I have misunderstood you and I apologise any distress caused by misunderstanding your views.

However, I too want nothing more to do with this discussion, as you seem incapable of posting this thread without making comments that are personal rather than about my opinions. "Bully", "self important", "gives it out but can't take it" and so on. It's really bad form.

I still maintain that critics largely exist for the benefit of the paying public rather than the benefit of the musicians, though...
