Critics Ranked and Reviewed

Tags: 
  1. Lester Bangs
  2. The one and only.
  3. Cap'n Marvel
  4. The Jay-Z of industrial polka.
  5. Robert Christgau
  6. Robert Christgau writes what Robert Christgau thinks is worth writing. He knows and loves to listen to all sorts of music and has a unique, powerful intelligence. He's generally a very readable guy unless you find his taste generally ridiculous. You can, and he doesn't care. ***
  7. Piero Scaruffi
  8. So you really want to have a strong opinion about every album without actually listening to most of them? His website can be your holy book.
