    Very interesting, thanks Mary, I agree with the writer and feel he makes a good argument.

I believe that being critical of art is a way of showing art respect. No one would write that every play by the NY METS is great; or every movie; or every meal. Yet most art reviews are glowing/positive. What has happened to critics? Is this inclination, fear, the academy scaring the shit out of young writers, what?"

    Sounds like the 100%-positive-review culture is alive in other areas of the arts, too.

    Wow, Thanks for finding that Mary - very interesting. I have noticed mostly positive reviews for things lately. However, my local newspaper gave the recent Bon Jovi concert at the Prudential Center a bad review. He said Bon Jovi's voice was gone and he sounded terrible !

    Thanks NKIT ... Yep interesting some reviewers actually can get denied access to a concert.

    Bon Jovi doesn’t want you to read this concert review.

    I’ve covered hundreds of performances over the years, providing my fair share of criticism, and only twice have I personally been denied access to a show, due to what was deemed unsavory previous coverage: both denials came from New Jersey’s own rock icons, all because I noted that Jon Bon Jovi’s voice is shot — which it is.

    Yep, that's it Dawn. I have never been to a Bon Jovi Concert but he sounded ok at the R & RHOF Ceremony. I have some friends who are die hard BJ fans and went to this concert. They thought it was great. However they are so hard core BJ fans they would go to any concert he does. Kinda like the Bruce fans here.

    Thanks NKIT, I actually enjoyed this review - IMHO the critic does not come across as unduly unfair or unsavory - and it is interesting to note that critics can be denied access to a show by virtue of their review track record. I truly did not know this but not at all surprised.

    It seems so petty for any artist or sports team to deny a press pass to a journalist who has criticized them in the past. Man up and invite your most vocal critics, I say. It's pretty obvious when a reviewer simply detests the band and is being snarky, versus when s/he is making valid critiques about the actual performance.
