Morrissey mentioned in Spiked article "The lost art of criticism"

Interesting article in Spiked that mentions negative reviews of California Son in left wing press, that clearly review the 'man' (as they see it) and not the 'music'.

These left wing critics bring to mind lyrics from 'Art Hounds' that I suspect could also be applied to certain tedious contributors to this very site: "Art-hounds: very funny, very witty, but very lonely, and below the belt is shriveled and small, it knows a thousand woes"

The lost art of criticism - spiked
Critics today seem incapable of separating art from politics.

And the ones in the right wing press review the music not the man. What an appallingly partisan sack of nonsense.
 
Ha ha! Criticism ain't no art. Criticism is just a hustle.
Hey, it's cool if ya get paid to splay your opinion, but callin' it art is just part of the con.
Now ya do find scholarship on subjects which can be useful in understandin' the dynamics, but it ain't criticism.
Don't be afraid to think and feel for yourself folks!
