I spot too many music reviewers (mainly rock/pop music critics I should add) that have the depth of knowledge of an enthusiastic casual music listener, and don't go beyond the initial obvious comparisons and also lack knowledge of historical aspects of the particular artist and style they are reviewing. Worse, they get by on a prose-like approach to everything, and are more concerned about the rhythm and composition of their review, instead of creating an informed and helpful opinion of the music. As if to create the illusion that sounding all clever and witty is enough.
