    Weird review...no idea why but I immediately thought of this thread. Also weird that this review does not read anything like as high as the album scores are.

    7.23 - White Lung // 8.2-3 - HARD Summer // 8.7 - Jagwar Ma // 8.8 - Flume // 8.10 - Warpaint // 8.23-24 - FYF Fest // 9.5 - Feed Me // 10.8 - Kasabian // 10.12 - Speedy Ortiz // 10.25 - The Afghan Whigs // 10.31 - QotSA Halloween Show! // 4.10-12 - Coachella 2015 W1

    Is there a particular reason as to why the entire Pixies catalogue was reviewed? I mean, there's no reissues, right? If you wanna shit on Indie Cindy, fine, but why drive home the fall from grace so harshly?

    This is highly exciting and a few months late.

    In the review of the Darkside album "Psychic":

    "Upon initially hearing it, one could easily think of Daftside as an academic work rather than something meant for listening pleasure—a foment of the bubbling resentment towards the original’s Gatsby-esque confluence of ostentatious extravagance and genuine, if self-serving, benevolence; it was a hell of a party that left a lot of up-and-coming producers feeling like they were locked out of East Egg."

    the fuck?

    Certainly not scrimping on the Swans love. 9.2.

    Can we just stop Ian Cohen from reviewing albums ever again? I've only listened to the Fucked Up album once and 7.0 seemed like my initial gut feeling (good but not great,) but the vast majority of his review is focused on why the production is bad, even if the songs are very good. Jesus.

    7.0 is bullshit. This album is far better than David Comes To Life.

    First listen to a stream isn't really a good way to judge, especially for a band that uses so much layering in their recordings. That said, my first listen was kind of disappointing, as it seemed like they've moved even further away from using the explosiveness of hardcore in non-hardcore settings. There were some songs that floored me, but most of it seemed too something I can't quite put my finger on. I'll give it plenty more chances, that's for sure.

    If you wade through the crap and dig deeper, you can discover some interesting albums and tracks that are reviewed by people like Marc Masters. But their more prominent reviews and this top 100 stuff are just awful and embarrassing.

    7/29 Conor Oberst @ Summerstage
    8/2 Daniele Baldelli/Simian Mobile Disco @ PS1
    8/2 Magda @ Output
    8/3 Seth Troxler/the Martinez Brothers @ Gov Island

    When it comes to Ian Cohen, the general rule is that as the better the album the worse the score and the more mind-numbing the commentary.
    7/26 Au Revoir Simone @ The Roxy, 8/1 Arcade Fire, the Unicorns, Dan Deacon at the Forum, 8/2 Burger a-Go-Go, @ Observatory, 8/9 Warpaint @ Observatory, 8/10 Warpaint @ The Ace, 8/23-24 FYF Fest, 9/11 Swans @ Roxy, 9/18 Neutral Milk Hotel @ Hollywood Bowl, 9/19 Chvrches @ Palladium, 9/30 Cibo Matto @ the Roxy, 10/9 Zola Jesus @ El Rey, 10/16 Massive Attack @ Greek Theater, 10/26 Asobi Seksu & Slowdive @ Royale

    8.6 and BNM.

    Pitchfork nailed exactly what is so great and refreshing about White Lung's vicious and uncompromising new LP Deep Fantasy. I have seen the band a number of times, first time being in 09 (and played with them once), and every time they have blown me away. Everyone in Vancouver has known for years White Lung was going to blow up (most thought it would have been after their excellent 2012 album Sorry) and it is awesome to see the band, finally, getting this sort of recognition.
