Lucid Culture

JAZZ, CLASSICAL MUSIC AND THE ARTS IN NEW YORK CITY

Whores Like the All Rest?

Not that this come as any surprise, but according to the Black Crowes’ website, Maxim Magazine reviewed their most recent album without actually hearing it. This isn’t exactly a new fad among magazine writers: in his anthology, Richard Meltzer admits reviewing a David Bowie album in the early 70s without having heard a single note. One can only wonder what, if anything, Kelefa Sanneh of the New York Times ever listens to (other than R. Kelly, of course).

Rest assured that everything that is reviewed at Lucid Culture has been personally witnessed by the reviewer: if somebody leaves the club for a smoke break, there’s tape rolling, for later listening. By the way, that new R. Kelly DVD – you know, the x-rated one – is really awesome!!!!!

Just kidding.
