I guess i REALLY need to listen to that pallbearer album.
Yup. It's killer.
AKA Garage Rock dude pisses on everything that's not garage rock.
No kidding, people like this should be required to submit their own top ten lists. I guess in his case, he could rank his favorite Ty Segall albums or something.
I thought #5 was funny

You should definitely have this on vinyl. It sounds way better when you never listen to it on vinyl.
Sums it up pretty well.Quote:
I’m not sure I even like music.
I like Taco Leg
Top 100 tracks of 2012 posted in the group.
Beach House have never clicked with me, either live or recorded. Then again, there are quite a few artists that people hold in high regard that leave me cold. Jeff Mangum is probably top of that list, along with James Blake and St. Vincent.
Some funny contradictions in here. Most obvious being Animal Collective getting most Underrated album then clocking in as the Most Disappointing...I fall in the former category but regardless, interesting to see the differences between readers and writers.
Every year there's a pretty big overlap between most underrated and most disappointing. That trend tends to impact poorly-received albums by established b(r)ands, where you have a split between the fanboys and the more reflective fans on the critical establishment's "meh". See, Limbs, King of.
I like this idea.
I like this idea, too. I just hope they don't let it color their critical coverage of albums they stream.
Local Natives land an 8.1.
Kind of surprising, it's not a bad album, but it's just kind of...there.
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.
9.1 for MBV
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.
