+ - Music Critic Robert Christgau Retires->

Submitted by claybugg
claybugg (1496827) writes "Longtime music critic Robert Christgau, known for his terse reviews, is retiring his popular Consumer Guide after 41 years. He writes in the last edition:

"Barring miracles unlikely to ensue, this is the final edition of Christgau’s Consumer Guide, which MSN will no longer publish following this month’s edition. The CG has generally required a seven-days-a-week time commitment over the 41 years I’ve written it, and I’m grateful to MSN for paying me what the work was worth over the three-and-a-half years I published it here. But though I always enjoyed the work, work it was, and I’ve long been aware there were other things I could be doing with my ears. So while I have every intention of keeping up with popular music as it evolves, being less encyclopedic about it will come as a relief as well as a loss."
