Anti-Pantheon One-Off - Bob Dylan on Elvis Costello, from The Philosophy of Modern Song

Yeuch thanks but no thanks Bob for that glimpse into your psyche 

Apart from that, simply one of the worst bits of music-writing I've ever read. 

The first longer bit is almost as bad. 

Bonus Dylan shitewrite, mystifyingly singled out for its excellence, by UK reviewer: The Clash, "London Calling". Not actively execrable like the Costello but surpassingly mediocre.
