Best music writer

Pound for pound, who is the best current music writer? I say it is Sasha Frere-Jones. He writes for the New Yorker, but despite that he likes pop as well (like the fabulous Girls Aloud). His blog is good too. A recent New Yorker piece talks about which British acts work in America. From an online-only followup piece:

We like the moody types, such as Radiohead, but we don’t like it when somebody says, clearly, “This bad thing happened and I have a theory as to why, and also we are from England because you can hear my weird accent and I just talked about takeaway curry and you’ve haven’t the foggiest.”
