Gail has that elusive quality that seperates her writing from other critics… it's called "soul." Her writing comes out of a genuine love of music, rather than from some misguided attempt to impress with phony conconctions of hip references and obscure name dropping. You want proof? You'll see Gail up front at a great rock 'n' roll show dancing her ass off, while other critics are ruminating on whether or not their folded arms and bored expressions are giving off the proper amount of ennui. Gail is the real deal, and she rocks!
