The Friendly Critic is a website full of music criticism, put together by a collective of music journalists with a penchant for honesty.

We love music, and we want to communicate that love in whatever way we can – through words, through visuals, through informed discussion and argument, through passion.

Our team features students, alumni and staff from ACM London and ACM Guildford, but our views and responsibilities are our own and in no way representative of ACM, either in an official or unofficial capacity.

There are other excellent websites in the U.K. discussing and critiquing music. We wish to add our voice to their voices, and shake stuff up a little – and give the Music We Love a little deserved boost while we’re here.
