Christgau's Consumer Guide

If this month's CG seems more cognizant of the charts than has been my recent practice, that's because there are a number of records of moderate quality on the charts these days. Very moderate, I grant you, but that's enough to make them worthy of note. Chart records do have one salient virtue, after all--they stick out enough so that human beings who don't happen to be music addicts are cognizant of them. Ah, communication.
