From Wikipedia:
"Along with his contempories, such as Paul Morley, Charles Shaar Murray, Paul Rambali and Danny Baker, Kent is widely considered one of the most important and influential UK music journalists of the 1970s. He wrote for the British music publication New Musical Express, moving to The Face later on in his career."

This list is from the book "Apathy for the Devil: A Seventies Memoir", which includes the chapter "Soundtrack for the Seventies".
