Billboard Love Music, ALL Music Regardless Of Worth

large.Iy9-wwluaOg5rB1OWDyui5nhvBOhoYhu2hMUNB3aQsk

Of all the art forms that have been lost the saddest is the art of the art of the dis, or even the lukewarm impression. Nowadays folks, say Rolling Stone and Billboard, to of the biggest websites, between B+ and A+ -everybody is happy happy happy.

It is true of nearly every one and _ myself live in the C- to B+ area mostly: rarely do I go to the extremes. This week of 26 albums review, nobody got even an A-.

It is not the same at Billboard and that’s for sure Why are these writers getting paid to write bullshit? I mean, if everything is great then nothing is great. The litmus test is, as always, U2. Billboard gave the bad album four out of five stars. “Unless Apple has some super amazing new apps up its sleeve, it — like so much of Songs of Innocence — is strong enough to keep fans from messing with their iPhones”

This is speaking kiss ass to power. It is a lie. Another lie. Billboard’s reviews are useless from one end to the other. There is no semblance of truth or meaning or dignity about them. They are a load of old cobblers. Billboard never heard an album or so a show they didn’t love, they are the least discerning writers on the planet. It is like “The Lego Movie” every thing is happy happy happy.

Don’t believe me?

I got through SIXTY REVIEWS before they gave as low as 2.5 (it as actually a 2 star review),. And then to Ciara’s solo Jackie album. Really? Billboard gives three stars to Muse and four stars to U2, and two stars to Ciara??? What did she do, invade Poland?

What is with this institutionalized lying? It is a little on the unseemly side, especially for a website whose job is to give a fair counting of sales. Perhaps, and I’m just saying here, it has something to do with their advertisers here? Why bite the hand that feeds you?
