The masterful Andrew Kuo developed a chart-based music review for The New York Times. New York Magazine then responded with a chart-based review of his review. Just fabulous. (Click each image to see larger)

It's amazing how the reviewing of art has become an art form itself!

These charts certainly demonstrate that deciphering a particular reviewer's vocabulary can be every bit as involving as listening/reading/watching the work being reviewed.

Is this a sign of frustrated artist's syndrome?

Incidentally, I've recently discovered your podcast and listened to nearly every episode. Your opening monologues are wonderful and your questions are probing; you're my new hero!
