    Yeah... I think the time has come in which I finally start listening to Gorillaz. Dang I'm slow.

    It's not that surprising when a re-issue gets a 10.0.

    Didn't they give Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain a 10.0 as well?

    Pitchfork sure hate BRMC. The new album isn't great but giving Baby 81 a 4.5 is balls.

    i enjoy the new album more than baby 81. not great you're right. but an improvement after baby 81, which was a big disappointment after howl. though, i heard the songs were better live from that album.

    Is this why LCD Soundsystem is probably going to get a 9 or better on their new album too?

    The review doesn't surprise me one bit. I'd say Plastic Beach is better then Demon Days. Though Demon Days might have the more memorable songs, Plastic Beach is more complete and all around.

    Plastic Beach is going to be that one album this year that is consistently overrated. It is generally boring despite bright flashes of inspiration

    Look at all the bands that have played the years past they are always the ones to get "best new music" stamp, but LCD will get an 8 or better and it will be deserved

    My guess would be that they book bands they give BNM to becasue they like those bands enough to label them BNM. Maybe I'm thinking too much into this.

    That makes no sense. I'm pretty sure it's all part of an advanced conspiracy put together by the Illuminati to keep the proletariat Soundgarden fan down.

    Didn't they totally cream themselves over LCD's last album (Sound of Silver)? That was probably enough right there.

    average review for the last reviewed album for artists on the Pitchfork bill: 8.23

    I'd imagine that the lineup is more of a reflection of albums that they liked rather than the vice versa conspiracy that was just mentioned.

    In 2009 Pitchfork Media named the track "All My Friends", the second best song of the decade, and a month later, Sound of Silver was ranked at #17 in the 200s albums of the decade list.

    Did... you methodically calculate that? If so, did you write a list of all the festival performers' newest albums and subsequent P4K scores? I'd like to see that list.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    Pitchfork gave a KISS compilation a 10.0.

    Yeah, but that was Jason Josephes. He was crazy. He gave out more 10s and more 0s than any other writer there.

    Did he? I really don't read their reviews anymore, much less follow the writers.

    I like reading some older reviews after I listen to some older albums, though

    Josephes did the Kiss thing as a part of a series where he tried to review every Kiss album to that point. I believe he gave out 2 10s, and I know there were 2 0.0s (The Peter Criss solo Kiss record and The Elder).

    Back in '03 I got nuts about reading their old reviews. Found some awesome shit that way, like The Microphones, The Notwist, Brainiac, 12 Rods, etc.

    No Age are participating in an auction for a Haitian fundraiser. They wrote on and signed one of their old tour t-shirts. If you win the auction, wearing the shirt = guest list to any No Age show for the rest of your life. Apparently, you're also bidding to find Dean's personal email address, because you'll have to email him to get on the guest list:

    and the result was two fairly unfocused records saved by some decent alt-rap.

    I'm tired of reading Frog Eyes reviews about Sunset Rubdown (good or mediocre)... The evolution went the other way...

    I bet it irritates the band.
