Re: Is Rolling Stone magazine capable of giving an album a good review?
I have to agree it does always seem like Rolling Stone gives many mainstream artist good reviews.
In fact, I don't see many singer-songwriters getting great reviews as well.
For example Tori Amos hasn't gotten a good review for her albums in almost a decade.
They haven't rated Sarah McLachlan great either and then don't rate one of her best albums to date, Surfacing.
But they did mention that Brandi Carlile was an artist to watch out about 5 years ago, so I guess that isn't too bad.

Something needs to change.
