Quote from: Zizekian on July 03, 2012, 06:09:38 PMHow accurate does everyone find the classical music review section on the NPR Music website? I'm still learning the ropes when it comes to purchasing classical music (well, as a more discriminating consumer and not just buying box sets from the bargain bins!).
Quote from: North Star on July 04, 2012, 02:39:40 AMI have no idea of NPR, but I recommend asking here on the 'Recordings you are considering' thread (and searching for earlier discussions), and reading Amazon reviews, although most of them are worthless, some are very knowledgeable reviewers (it's awful if Giordano Bruno quit permanently).

The rest is a matter of personal taste, so the trick is to find critics whose taste complements your own.
