Return of the Dean

THE RETURN OF THE DEAN: Legendary, self-proclaimed Dean of American Rock Critics Robert Christgau, whose famed Consumer Guide was unceremoniously yanked from MSN last June, will re-emerge on the site with “Expert Witness,” which is essentially a focused re-launch of his famed record review column, spotlighting two “A” records every couple of days. This week, he gives high marks to both The RootsHow I Got Over and Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy on his new blog, where you can read his always-fascinating insights here. You go, Xgau. (11/30a)
