    So Holy Ghost! released their album this week and they have been getting a good amount of coverage on Pitchfork, but the site seemed to have skipped on reviewing the album. They even included the album on the Most Anticipated Fall 2013 Releases list. Has this ever happened before?

    Factory Floor was robbed of BNM. If any album recently has deserved it, its that one.

    They've had a number of very recent releases that scored 8.0 or higher but didn't get BNM'd.

    rage will shake a "Y NO BNM" fist every time he puts on this record, months and years and decades after its release: he'll never forget.

    How the hell did Pitchfork give Charli XCX - True Romance a 8.3 !!?!?!?

    i saw the buzz machines going haywire on her and then i actually listened to her album..
    Fukkin HORRENDOUS ..

    dull as fuck, overproduced dance-pop album.. it's so by-the-numbers it makes Lady Gaga's albums sound avant garde

    I don't understand the love for Charli XCX either, nor do I understand the current infatuation with London Grammar.

    She wrote the Icona Pop song, right? Other than that, I largely don't get it. It's like Lana Del Goth or something.

    Charlie XCX was horrible when I saw her at Melt. Did not sound good live at all and her Backstreet Boys cover made me cringe. People sitting at the soundboard with me were not impressed either.

    I keep wanting these "underground pop" sensations to end up being a Robyn situation and they never are. Similarly, I keep hoping all these indie dork approved luxury rap artists would end up being a Clipse situation and they never are.

    Charli XCX used that Gold Panda sample in her first single, I think that's how she got noticed? I'm not sure, tbh. I do kinda like that single. The rest of the album is shit, though. And yeah, London Grammar is just another on the list of 2013 "buzz bands" that is thoroughly awful. Why this has been the year that people go ape shit for terrible, terrible acts is beyond me. Shall we tally the bands that fit into that description from this year? Let's see...CHVRCHES, Atlas Genius, Lorde, King Krule, London Grammar. Am I forgetting anyone?
    4/27 - Ghost BC - Fonda (?)
    4/29 - Franz Ferdinand - Wiltern (?)
    4/30 - Mono - Troubadour (?)
    5/03 - Philip Glass - Royce Hall
    5/06 - Rodrigo y Gabriela - Orpheum (?)

    Good to know that exposure to such a wide range of music had almost no effect on you.

    She's slightly above the talents of the JC Chasez solo album, but doesn't have enough to put her over B.o.B's first album

    Not nearly as bad as people only remembering fun. because the lead singer is/was dating Lena Dunham.

    You would not believe how hard it is to find a picture of a generic 90s adolescent with a skateboard and backwards baseball cap like the type you'd see in every other commercial for xxxxtreeeeeme yogurt or whatever.

    Oh I know that. There is a few albums that have gotten 8.3 this year and still not gotten BNM. I am not saying I am surprised it got an 8.2 and no BNM. I am just saying I thought it deserved it.
