glueman Writing folk music reviews (124* d) RE: Writing folk music reviews 20 Jul 11


My answer is still no. Those of us who know what we like and even why we like it are a greater number than those who buy, or don't buy recordings based on the views of one (often egocentric) reviewer. If you think about it seriously evaluating a record, placing it in some abstract realm of quality linked to the reader's preconceptions, is a bizarre thing to do. It's all about good taste, and that's a very fleeting fashion indeed.
Gimme bad taste every time.
