Uncommon music criticized by the common man. (Or, exercises in futility masquerading as critical thought.)

Listen up, hipsterati. You've been put on notice.

Actually, I agree with this sentiment, snarky thought it may be. In the rush to emulate the British music press, too many critics choose hyperbolic proclamations rather than actual criticism in order to sell the merits of a band. Why evaluate the place of an artist within the great musical continuum (or even their own body of work) when you can just shill with the fervor of a three-handed onanist?
