greil marcus might be one of the only ones who stuff interesting enough to wade through the bullshit. most of 'em aren't even worth the effort.

I tentatively agree, tho Marcus is such a goddamned tease that I almost prefer the low expectation / low delivery of others. Marcus hints at something significant in his analysis, but then smothers it in spastic hyperbole and detours that I often feel ripped off for taking the bait.
Endut! Hoch Hech!

We reach the parts other combos cannot reach
We beach the beachheads other armies cannot beach
We speak the tongues other mouths cannot speak

The subtext of that article is that even our supposedly greatest rock critics of that day were pretty much idiots.
An uncontroversial assessment, I'd say. In my class the last couple weeks, we've read and discussed pieces that argue that it was the earliest rock critics in the 1960s who established the racist and sexist parameters of rock music—It's by and for white males, that black people and women are illegitimate. Rock critics were (and largely still are) the pompous shithead who declares, "If you were a real fan …."
Every time I read something by any of those dweebs, it’s almost always incredibly misguided and edgelord as fuvk. Any of them.
Greil Marcus says hi (but it'll take 10,000 words and fifteen irrelevant and hyperbolic tangents to do so).

"Lipstick Traces" great book title as all you get are traces of anything worthwhile.
