  classical music - andante - views on reviews: a composer and critic square off
And, since every part of the presentation of music has professional standards, from composers to performers and conductors, it is reasonable to suggest that the judgment of such professionals is done by their peers — that is, other professionals who are at least as competent as they are.
However, some critics have a strong ideology that causes them to see the various tools available to the composer as stances of his or her ideology rather than merely techniques.
Critics with an agenda — a view as to where new music should go — review a work as to whether or not it fits in with the political/philosophical goals of that agenda.

  Critic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Critics are numerous in certain fields, including art critics, music critics, film critics, theatre or drama, restaurant and scientific publication critics.
Critics might even champion a wholly new art medium; for instance the century-long critical struggle to have photography recognised as a valid art form.
A critical perspective, in this sense, is the opposite of a dogmatic one.

 Cultural critic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A cultural critic is a critic of a given culture, usually as a whole and typically on a radical basis; a social critic of a given society, but the overlap is large.
Cultural criticism is normally understood to deal with some fundamental perceived problems, rather than minor improvements: it is asserted that things are heading in the wrong direction, or that values are wrongly placed.
A cultural critic therefore stands, in relation to intellectual or artistic life, or certain social arrangements or educational practices, roughly where a prophet would in respect of religious life.

 Critic with a heart - and a sharp pen - Arts - Entertainment - smh.com.au
IN AN essay last year on the collected works of the revered theatre reviewer H.G. Kippax, Gerard Windsor considered the question: "Whom does the critic serve?" He quoted with approval Kippax's answer that it was not the theatre as such, nor the people who worked in it, but "the discussion, the public debate".
The award should generate further comment, as he is better known as a writer of fiction than criticism.
Windsor also regrets his choice of words during his most infamous critical moment, at the Adelaide Writers' Week in 1986, when in a talk on weaknesses in contemporary reviewing he said women writers were sometimes treated too softly.

Critical dynamic nanometer effects are masked by the abstraction to the gate-level when using static timing analysis tools for timing sign-off.
CRITIC provides automated access to highly detailed transistor-level dynamic simulation, thus closing the verification gap that is opened by both cell-level abstractions and the inaccuracies of the static timing domain.
CRITIC starts with timing verification of the globally distributed clock networks, in order to precisely determine the arrival time and clock slew at every internal sequential element.

 How to become a Music Critic
A man cannot become an expert in criticism without practising an art of some kind; and if that art is not music, then he naturally confines himself to the art he is accustomed to handle, writing about it if he has the requisite literary faculty, and if not, teaching it.
Whether he is praising or blaming, he always dwells on some of the hundred points that all players and executants have in common, and misses the final ones that make all the difference between mediocrity and genius and between one artist and another.
I wrote the criticisms, and he handed the emoluments over to me without deduction, contenting himself with the consciousness of doing generously by a young and forlorn literary adventurer, and with the honor and glory accruing from the reputed authorship of my articles.

 The Inner Critic: Accepting Ourselves by psychotherapist Kali Munro
Some people have stronger inner critics than others, but most people at one time in their lives have struggled to believe positive things that are said about them, and to ward off internal criticisms.
The inner critic wants us to do well, to succeed, and to be liked, but operates on the thinking level of a child, and a child who thinks that what other people think of her/him is not only important but correct.
Talk to other people about their inner critic's messages and compare the similarities; you may be surprised to hear that inner critics sound pretty similar from person to person and your inner critic's messages are not specific to you.

THE CRITIC IN THE HOT SEAT: As actors increasingly lash our at critics after receiving negative reviews (Donald Sutherland and Kelsey Grammer, most recently), the role of the critic - and arts journalism in general - is being widely debated.

Here and there in a few major periodicals one can find art critics who realize they are writing for a mass medium and general audience, and not for a rarefied elite of cultural academics, museum docents and fellow critics.

 In Praise of “Spike Lee’s Huckleberry Finn” by Ralph Wiley
The first critic to make a full-blown case for the idea that Jim manifests both agency and intelligence was David Lionel Smith in his groundbreaking essay, “Huck, Jim and American Racial Discourse” (1984).
A number of critics (such as Fredrick Woodard and Donnarae MacCann) charge Twain himself with seeing Jim as a minstrel stereotype, eliding the fact that it is Huck’s version of events, rather than the author’s, that is being depicted.
A critic can make a case for an interpretation of a work of art without claiming that the artist had it consciously in mind from the start.

In children, the inner critic tells the child that they are not smart enough, good enough, or talented enough to accomplish their goals.
