    from my blog This is one of the better entries in the 33 1 3 series In most rock criticism, the concept of keeping it real vs selling out usually takes precedence over any actual weighing of musical ability With this prejudice in place, albums that are perceived as whole conceptions are analyzed while collections which I d wager that most consumers actually purchase are seen as not worthy of discussion And any mention of the fact that this music exist from my blog This is one of the better entries in the 33 1 3 series In most rock criticism, the concept of keeping it real vs selling out usually takes precedence over any actual weighing of musical ability With this prejudice in place, albums that are perceived as whole conceptions are analyzed while collections which I d wager that most consumers actually purchase are seen as not worthy of discussion And any mention of the fact that this music exists in order to generate money would destroy the illusion of artistic individuality.So Vincentelli has an interesting battle to fight before ...
