“watched the police cart her away”
Shouldn’t it be “cart him away”?
NO?! Well, cancel christmas, muthafudgecannon!
Underrated? UNDERRATED? You’re kidding, right? Did you mean to say overhyped?
Pitchfork does a good job of bringing awareness to new music. There’s no doubt about it. They also have interesting media and do a decent job of covering current music news. What has killed me for years is the reasoning they put behind their reviews and the bias they have towards superficial things, as opposed to focusing on the music itself. Of course, the ones I agree with, I have no problem with ha…
One has to admit – they are totally inconsistent when it comes ot the standards by which they judge. Sure, music is subjective and how good it is is hard to measure…but they do measure it and they do use a 10 point scale and they do write fucking novels when it comes to the review copy.
You can tell the reviewers usually don’t know much about actual music creation and sometimes reveal they don’t know much about music history because they all too often elevate mediocre shit just because of a backstory, image, or novel trait like being obnoxiously loud…or they think stuff is original-sounding because they don’t know enough about the music or artist that the currently-being-reviewed artist has contrived their sound from…and conversely, they overlook or poo-poo really ambitious music because there isn’t an interesting backstory or because it’s too sincere or because the artist doesn’t look as cool as the last artist they overhyped.
I check into Pitchfork almost everyday but I take their reviews with a grain of salt.
Turd Ferguson on Late Night with Uncle Creepy Fingers.
It would shoot the ratings for the show through the roof if the band was to reunite for the induction.
Hopefully, they announce that they’ll be reuniting, they play a rippin’ set at the Hall of Fame concert that includes “My Michelle” and the crowd goes nuts, they go to accept the reward and Axl and Slash end up fist fighting on national television, then later that night the news comes out that GnR is doing that collaboration with the remaining members of N.W.A. that was rumored about years ago.
Thom Yorke used to be a Japanese Ganguro kid? Not a bad look for him…
