Hi. I'm Robert Christgau. I've written about rock and roll, popular and semipopular music, and popular culture since 1967. This is my website, and herein you will find as much of my writing as we can put up. This includes my Consumer Guide to over 13,000 records, my books, essays from my Village Voice Rock&Roll& column, other music writings, book reviews, and more.

If you're new to this website, check out the HOWTO.

If you're returning, check out What's New?.

If you're just nosy, take a gander at the Site Map.

Use the CG Search (on the left) to look up Consumer Guides for an artist by name, or use the Text Search (also on the left) to search all articles for a name, word, or phrase.

The most common links are always in the left navigation box. Beware that although we are adding material as quickly as possible, there is much more to be done. See the Caveats file for the gory details.
