All well and good, but Hajdu's article is a new one, criticizing the music  
(and perhaps more on-point, the person) of three to five decades ago. As an 
 acknowledged historian, his piece was certainly rife with non-objective,  
emotional opinion. The point is: it is opinion, one should not confuse this 
with  fact.

I  reviewed music for my college newspaper back in the stone age.  When I  
read my OWN stuff now I think "What the HELL was I hearing back  then?"  
of my current favorite recordings now is one I lambasted  back then. 
Criticism is what it is -- an emotional reaction at a  particular time -- 
no more.  The older I get, the less seriously  I take it.
