Rock criticism, never a particularly lofty art form in the first place, has hit a new low with your recent patronizing review of that quixotic little critic's darling Eminem's latest batch of bile [July 28]. Why are so many of you falling all over each other to suck this man's kneecaps? Anyone who compares the illiterate droolings of a sensationalistic piece of human excrement like Eminem with a genius like William Blake brings new meaning to the word "IDIOT"!

As a real musician I would like to thank you, Mr. Goldfein--and the legions of other myopic trend-mongers like yourself, for helping to create a culture where garbage is worshiped and quality is shunned. People like you have made it almost impossible for artists who value artistry to get anywhere in this stinking business. May you spend an eternity being forced to listen to Eminem, Kid Rock, Korn, Limp Bizkit, Dr. Dre, and Snoop Dogg over and over and over--and throw in Britney Frigging Spears for good measure!

Have a nice day.

John Ludi
