Submission + - Music Critic Robert Christgau Retires (popmatters.com)

claybugg 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.
