We should ask instead, is contemporary critical writing dead? That we have problems in funding our home-grown talent is assisted by myopic criticism that is not about what is happening now but what has gone before. Music, as with any contemporary art development, will strive to break new ground. In doing so it needs open ears and minds. Ignore these barers of doom and buy into the idea of the new and unknown. It will pleasurably surprise you.
