Do people actually enjoy and agree with his reviews or is he actually one big meme? Genuinely asking
The fact that so many books still name the Beatles "the greatest or most significant or most influential" rock band ever only tells you how far rock music still is from becoming a serious art. Jazz critics have long recognized that the greatest jazz musicians of all times are Duke Ellington and John Coltrane, who were not the most famous or richest or best sellers of their times, let alone of all times. Classical critics rank the highly controversial Beethoven over classical musicians who were highly popular in courts around Europe. Rock critics are still blinded by commercial success: the Beatles sold more than anyone else (not true, by the way), therefore they must have been the greatest. Jazz critics grow up listening to a lot of jazz music of the past, classical critics grow up listening to a lot of classical music of the past. Rock critics are often totally ignorant of the rock music of the past, they barely know the best sellers. No wonder they will think that the Beatles did anything worth of being saved.
What do you think
I actually agree with his reviews on Beatles and Radiohead (although i like radiohead) and everything else is hilariously bad, specially concerning metal
I honestly find it hard to believe that someone has consumed as much media as scaruffi, let alone properly review it
Scaruffi has great taste but he's a terrible writer
kinda like the antithesis of Mark Prindle, who I never agree with but love reading his reviews anyway
did he give 6/10 to your favorite album or something?
that's what i think happened
the italian original text is pretty decent
nah, he hasn't rated my album but it's on his top list of albums for the genre, so i'm guessing he liked it
