I must be a douchebag cause all these big names make me uncomfortable. Already thinking they're gonna ruin Twin Peaks.

I think the headline is written with the intention of tricking us. So many Stereogum headlines are fantastical compared to the actual story.

Yes. Thank you. Paralytic Stalks got panned, and not just by Pitchfork. It's a masterpiece, almost on par with Hissing Fauna, I think.

In fact, I'm more disgusted by Drake than anyone, not because he says crazy shit, but because it seems like he believes himself. Kanye is definitely living a persona.

Translation: Don't use your platform to speak to power, especially when I disagree with you. Also, I'm an asshole.

I'm so sick of Stereogum telling me I should respect Taylor Swift or watch the VMA's. This site is going downhill. I've been a 'Gum lover for over 5 years now, but I don't know how much more drivel I can handle. I'm sure this site has already lost people with a lower tolerance than myself. For what? Clicks? Ad money? The cult of the pop artist? If there wasn't a decent comment forum, I'd already be over for me. T Swift might be "professional," but this kind of journalism isn't.

Daft Punk?!?! Why isn't Phoenix headlining every night?

I'd go but 2 Chainz is there. Also, Phoenix has no business being bigger than Sigur Ros, Franz Ferdinand, Modest Mouse, or even the Postal Service. All in all, awesome lineup. Being thousands of miles away isn't awesome though.

What's the relationship b/w the two bands? Or is there something I'm missing? ...cause aside from both bands putting out awesome sophomore albums I can't see much in common.

Awesome. This was awesome. Foxygen is awesome. FIDLAR is awesome. Esben & the Witch...awesome. Ra Ra Riot is good and The Joy Formidable still formidable. First awesome week of music in 2013. Awesome.

Saying that a "large critic site should be consistent in their endorsement or objections to a band...etc." seems like saying "everyone who works at this publication should think the same way about the same music" or "the same writer should continue to review the same band." I don't really think that either is a good thing. Though I understand the point that these writers represent the larger entity of the site they publish for, I like the idea of the author/critic having as much autonomy as he/she can. Ian Cohen shouldn't be kicked off the Free Energy assignment b/c he has a different opinion than the reviewer of Stuck On Nothing. Nor should he be told he needs to give it a certain rating, good or band. I agree that there is something valuable to consistency, but I think that it's best for critic sites that there be a variety of opinion even at the sake of consistency (not saying P4K is the best at that by any means.) Also, you must be reading different blogs than me. I guess I only check Stereogum with any frequency, but I never "hear people stand up for Pitchfork." I'm happy to be a bit of an apologist for Pitchfork simply because people rag on it sooooo much. I think P4K is a decent site, and I find a lot of good music there. It certainly has its faults, but good lord people attack it like crazy. I guess there's some value, on a political level, in attacking the dominating institutions in an industry... Also, I know I'm not gonna get much love for this, but Ian Cohen is not a monster. This comment section is livid. I can't detect anything in his writing that's particularly bitter, snobbish, or tasteless. He can be very critical at times...but he's a critic. Critics shouldn't be afraid to say what they will because it's going to hurt somebody's feelings or get the readership in an uproar.

Also, a 5.2 by my standards is above average by 0.2 so this guy should be celebrating!

I wouldn't be surprised if Pitchfork gave this Best New Track
