-A '''music critic''' is someone who reviews [[music]] (including printed music, performances and recorded music) and publishes writing on them in books or journals (or on the internet). Some music critics also write books analyzing musical styles and discussing music history, thus verging on the field of [[musicology]].+
- +
-Many composers of [[classical music]] were also notable writers on, and critics of, music, including [[Hector Berlioz]], [[Richard Wagner]] and [[Robert Schumann]]. Amongst modern practitioners of the classical music tradition who also write (or wrote) on music may be included [[Alfred Brendel]], [[Charles Rosen]], [[Paul Hindemith]] and [[Ernst Krenek]].+

-In the realm of [[rock music]], critics have perhaps not garnered much respect. Indeed, [[Frank Zappa]] once declared that, "Most rock journalism is people who can't write, interviewing people who can't talk, for people who can't read." In the [[Guns N' Roses]] song "[[Get in the Ring]]", [[Axl Rose]] verbally attacked critics who gave the band negative reviews because of their actions on stage; such critics as Andy Secher, Mick Wall and Bobby Guccione, Jr. were mentioned by name. +
