Quote of the Day

I've disagreed with Norman Lebrecht's ideas many times, but these recent remarks on the purpose of music critics made me cheer:

That is why newspapers need critics - to protect readers from the routinely awful and the meretricious rubbish that masquerades as novelty, and to excite them with the blood-rush of the real thing. This is also why people read newspapers - to find a voice they can trust to lead them through the barren wilderness to a kind of promised land.
