I may be off-base here but I personally don't demand that a critic, in whatever field, must have an encyclopedic knowledge of every manifestation of said field. For example, should a fiction critic have read "A Tale of Two Cities" sometime in his life, even if just in junior high? Yes. Must he have read every single Stephen King novel and short story? I don't think so. In my opinion, it is the quality of the writing (and knowledge), not the quantity that matters.
