Said no one, ever.
Said the people behind The Talkhouse.

The online publication, which is still in beta mode, launched in March 2013 with the goal to share reviews of musicians, by musicians. Is it fair for non-musicians to anaylze the art of the musically inclined? Do music critics and journalists have it all wrong, all the time?

The answers to these questions are debateable, but The Talkhouse is starting a new discourse — what do notable musicians think about the releases by artists of the moment? The media already spends a lot of time and energy asking musicians to comment on the personal details or behaviors of their colleagues (read: gossip), so why not get their thoughts on the music? It’s interesting to hear the perspective of another artist, especially those who have a different style and aesthetic.
