I was just reading reviews and searching infos on the band Kansas when I stubled upon a very bad score for the album Leftoverture, which may just be the best fuckin' rock album ever released along with Phenomenon by UFO. Some dickwad named Robert Christgau is supposedly a music critic, an essayist and a music journalist, but gave the album a D+. So it got me wondering just what kind of fucktard he was. And that's what I found on his Wikipedia page :
"Christgau names Louis Armstrong, Thelonious Monk, Chuck Berry, The Beatles, and The New York Dolls as his top five artists of all time. In music critic circles, he was an early supporter of hip hop and the riot grrrl movements. In the 1980s, Christgau was a fervent booster of Afro-pop, a stance that alienated him from some in the critical community, as he seemed insufficiently interested in American and British rock music. In the 1990s, however, Christgau's interest in indie rock seemed to increase.
Christgau readily admits to disliking the musical genres heavy metal, art rock, progressive rock, bluegrass, gospel, Irish folk, and jazz fusion, but in rare instances has recommended albums in most of these genres."
Now just how can you call yourself a musical critic with such shitty opnions on music ? He disses Metal, Art Rock, Prog Rock and Jazz Fusion. Just tell me how can such a bouffon be taken seriously ? He pretty much dislikes all that makes music of today great and seems to have particular affection for poppish commercial genres with boring formulaic song-writting. And we aren't talking about some 17 years old girl who wears huge-ass glasses with black plastic frames and a stupid scarf anytime of the year. We are talking about someone who's job is to write reviews and criticize music. Wow... sad world...
