    There are people who try to deny this because his reviews hurt their feelings.

    What a bunch of snowflakes :whocharted:

    I agree with a majority of his criticisms except if it's anything negative about Travis, Young Thug, or Kanye

    His drip harder review was all a--- too

    Ebert had some terrible opinions as well. Judging the value of criticism by how often you agree with it is silly.

    Pretty sure you mean Roger Ebert, idk any Robert Ebert.

    Don't really see any similarities between them either, Ebert was good at what he did.

    Fantano listens to more music than anyone here and makes high quality vids discussing music everyday, there's a reason he has a legion of fans and basicaly monopolized the video reviewing game. I disagree with him all the time but when he says something is bad or good he always gives a good clear critique

    Inb4 "more knowledgeable" people say he's a bad critic

    Nobody trying to read pretentious writing in 2018 that's more about outside factors instead of the music

    And the amount of new music Fantano has turned people onto is incredible...yeah some of it may be hipster s--- that you may not see the appeal of but he's introduced me to artists/genres that allowed me to dig further and find new stuff I like even more

    Kudos to this guy for introducing people to loads of new s---, but other than that he's garbage.
    I'd never take his opinions seriously.
    I'd rather listen to music, check if it appeals to my own ears and then decide how good/bad it is.

    Why do u need other people’s opinions to help validate your own? That’s some p---- s---.

    The only persons opinion you should listen to that matters is yourself. I trust my own ears, I know what i like and don’t like. It’s not about who’s the “most knowledgeable”. This fantano guy is literally for music rookies who don’t dare formulate an opinion for themselves.

    This lol. I mean yeah I agree w big dangerous that being able to express why u like something is a good thing and it can be fun to look or read people's opinions (personally I cant stand watching reaction video's but thats personal) but just because some listen to 200 albums every day their opinion doesn't mean more to me than anyone's.

    I do find it cringe when people say this album is good because (whoever) said so :'(

    I also agree w @Big Dangerous about reviews that dont talk about the music at all, I prefer a good combo of the music and outside factors.

    dont know about other genres but his views on hip hop are often just... wrong. still will give him props for what he does though.

    It's not about validating opinions at all it's about the amount of music and artists you find out about because of his reviews

    I don't agree with Fantano on a lot of stuff as I've said time and time again lol
