Do we really need record reviews anymore?
Every Friday, the q This panel looks at the biggest stories in music news. Today, CBC arts reporter Lisa Christiansen and music writer A. Harmony join host Tom Power to talk about the pros and cons of album reviews.
Rapper and singer Lizzo recently released her latest album, Cuz I Love You, to rave reviews across the board — or almost across the board. In now-deleted tweets, Lizzo called out one music critic who wrote a review for Pitchfork that the singer was far from happy with.
The q This panel takes a look at the relationship that artists and critics share in 2019, especially when social media is such a popular means of communication between them.
They also discuss the musical legacy of Mariah Carey, who was recently honoured with the Icon Award at the Billboard Music Awards.
