Subject: RE: Review: Kate Rusby, Girl Who Couldn't Fly
You're right DB, but a lot of the criticism on this thread is NON-constructive and falls into the 'bollocks' category. "She's overrrated", She's boring" or comparing her with Britney Spears aren't constructive criticisms of Kates performances, they're just opinions, expressions of personal taste, and they carry no more or less weight than yours and mine.
And saying Kate's not as good as this or that performer doesn't pass muster either - again that's an expression of personal taste, not constructive criticism. Who's got the monopoly on good taste? I'd say no-one has, taste's a personal thing.
Whatever the naysayers think, there are a great many people who enjoy Kate's music, and their opinions are perfectly valid.
