Knowing that there's at least one musician who reads this (oh, and Tom too, of course!), I thought I'd ask a question. Do you think that a music critic/reviewer should have a proper sense of music theory? I don't mean Matt's strict stance that only musicians should be able to talk about music; it's just that while I like music (a lot), I feel that I don't know too much about its inner workings. I couldn't tell you the difference between middle-C and G, or how time-signatures work, for example. Admittedly, you don't often read much discussion about these things in most music reviews, but I wonder if I should try and learn. Thoughts would be appreciated!
