Playboy Columns

Robert Christgau wrote short reviews for Playboy magazine's Music section from 1985 to 2002. These reviews appeared along with similar reviews from other critics (primarily Vic Garbarini, Nelson George, Dave Marsh, and Charles M. Young). The columns below only include Christgau's reviews. The columns up through 1988 are organized by issue date. From 1989 on, the dates given are when the reviews were actually written--typical 2-4 months prior to actual publication.
