    8.1/no BNM has to come as a bit of a disappointment (from a p4k-ian lens). Hummingbird had all the pretense to become The Next Big Entry into the mainstreamish indie rock canon.

    Hummingbird just reminds me of better albums from better bands. A truly unremarkable record.

    Did the 3 middle songs of the album get negative 0.3 each?

    Ugh an album like this takes way more than three days to summarize, review, and give a score. Should have waited at least a couple more weeks Pitchfork.

    Concur. I didn't think there would be a review until at least Monday.

    Unless Richardson was on some 96 hour coke and cough syrup binge and listened to it on a constant loop.

    6.9 is for sure fair for what AMOK provides. CoS was just a tempered in their reaction. Just a genuinely decent but not overwhelming effort.

    I don't see HTDA getting BNM unless the board has taken over Pitchfork. I imagine they'll review The Men tomorrow.

    I'm guessing Next Day joins MBV in the 9+ club. Big week for BNM, YL (well deserved), Rhye, The Men (I can't imagine they won't give it to them), and Bowie next week.

    I'm guessing Bowie gets an 8.0, no BNM. They call it a good album, best in years, but also a look back to the Berlin period.

    Yeah last time I checked a 7.0 is pretty good.

    Still a funny tweet from Trent though.

    Fuck Trent for complaining about this, even using the term review in scare-quotes to rile up his cult. First, it's hardly as if they torched him with this review. Second, they've faithfully pimped his post-Fragile career with regular news coverage and generally positive reviews. It's not Pitchfork's fault that he made a mediocre side project album and then stepped all over it himself by announcing the return of NIN.

    Maybe Trent figured that they would have assigned it to somebody that wouldnt be as bad in comparison to the Fragile reviewer. He also shouldnt just say anything about the high profile reviews that are coming. Why not just say thanks to everyone who bought the album and leave it be?

    He's just mad it wasn't reviewed by Ian Cohen while two other albums with worse scores were today

    I enjoy Ian's writing tremendously, but Pitchfork is overextending him. He's writing far too many of their reviews, and far too many of the "big" releases as well, and the result is that their overall editorial viewpoint is more "samey" than it has ever been. They seem oddly understaffed right now.

    Agreed. I expect him to write the Bowie review.
