Christgau's Consumer Guide is back - on MSN

Months after Robert Christgau lost his position at the Village Voice, he has revived the Consumer Guide at MSN.com. Microsoft's news site has agreed to run a new Consumer Guide on the 1st of every other month. Here's the link: http://music.msn.com/music/consumerguide

As the Dean explains in a sidebar, the only significant difference between this version of the CG and the old one is that there will be a delay before certain albums show up in the Guide: Christgau has also recently signed on to write reviews for ROLLING STONE, and there's a restriction in his RS contract that if he reviews an album in the magazine he can't write about it anywhere else for four months. But it's great to see the Guide again.
