Critically acclaimed music journalist and author of the seminal books Come As You Are and Our Band Could Be Your Life takes the piss out of his own profession, with a collection of the most overused, cliched, and hackneyed phrases that music journalists rely on. Launched first on his Twitter feed, Rock Critic Law is now a book, accompanied by illustrations from musicians who have too often felt the faint praise, or the sting, of the lazy critic's pen.
