Dean Of Rock Critics Robert Christgau Resurrects The Consumer

Good news for all rock criticism lovers, the best living rock critic is back. You can read the former music editor of the Village Voice at his blog:

As Christgau notes this is how it is going down: ” Two posts a week, Tuesday and Friday most of the time, usually comprising reviews of two A records. Since that would require me to find 16 or 18 A new records a month when there are seldom more than a dozen, I’ll augment these with reissues, older records new to me, the occasional live report, maybe a book review, and occasionally one of those flights of fancy that make blogging the inchoate free-for-all it is.”

Personally I can’t wait. His first two consumer reviews, I mostly agreed with his take on MIA and I only  kinda agreed with his take on Arcade (and didn’t like the way he wrote it).
