An Irritating Habit of Music Writers…

“_______ is _______’s White Album.”

“_______ is _______’s Physical Graffiti.”

This is the 4,821st lazy crutch that must be stopped. Just because a band makes a really long record with too many styles contained within, that band did not make “their Sandinista!” When a band makes a brazen shift into weirdness, they are not making “their Sgt. Pepper’s.” I can’t believe I just read this sort of wordcount cheating in a recently published review. Ok, yes I can. You know, I now wonder if I’M guilty.
