Critics have a bad rep for everything

Critics are who we all turn to when we don’t trust something or are interested in trying something new. Critics tell you the up and up of everything; the good, the bad and the dirty on new music albums, television series and movies. Just look at this New York Times article written by critic, A. O. Scott; it’ll give you the inside of a critics mind.

The amount of trust we have for some critics is astonishing. We trust them to let us know if something is grotesque or in bad taste. We trust critics to tell us if something is award worthy or if it is going to make us cry.

I feel like we don’t express our appreciation for critics like we should, they usually save us a lot of heart break.
