I’ve been reading a lot of album reviews lately. Some reviewers nee critics concentrate on accurately their impressions of the music and it’s affect upon them. But man, are there a lot of reviewers who write in a way as to show how many names they can compare someone to.
Now, I’ll grant that that might be useful for a particular kind of reader. But, it’s tiresome to read, if you aren’t that kind of reader. And I think, kind of lazy. It’s also less informative than if they had just described their own reaction to the music.
