“Hey, up-and-coming musician. Did you put your blood, sweat, and tears into this new album of yours? Meh, your ability to relay your life’s work really feels kinda ‘C-‘ to me.”

“Ooh, but that new Katy Perry EP is JUST what the doctor ordered! Four stars! All the thumbs up!”

Don’t get me wrong, it’s cool when musicians get favorable reviews and I’m sure those articles make them feel proud, as they should. I just don’t see why it matters to the rest of us.

The new Deftones is awesome, by the way.
