    Yes.

    80% (more?) of their reviews are meant to either pander to their festival and/or keeping "relevant" with the younger demo for their advertisers. It's not difficult to read through the lines there. I will give them credit for learning from the failings of their predecessors (RS, Spin, etc). They completely jumped the shark once the ad bubble burst and have rendered themselves the eunuchs of music journalism (shit, RS is only worthwhile for their investigative journalism now).

    You guys making lists? I'm going thru it right now and deciding what should potentially be on mine. I'm already well over 100.

    I've only given it one cursory listen so far, but it is MUCH better than that number indicates.

    I like most of what Yeasayer has done up to this point so I'm sure I would like it then. Gonna listen to it on Spotify.

    I thought that number was spot-on. A total mess of an album. And lol, it's score is only a fraction higher than the new album from The Darkness.

    Yeah, not sure why this review has been so controversial or shocking (Cohen on Twitter today: "On the other hand, big ups to @Yeasayer fans - your hatemail game is surprisingly on point.") But this album is hardly exceptional, and I'm not sure that Yeasayer has done anything to date that would establish their place as some sort of tenured, capital-I important act that is above measured criticism. Two good albums, three or four excellent singles, and totally understandable that people like them. But it's hardly like this was a pan of a new Animal Collective album or something.

    They obviously sound a lot like The Knife - only if "Heartbeats" was the most challenging and antipop track The Knife had.

    It's like The Knife made a Cyndi Lauper & Prince cover album.

    "Under The Bridge" is both a great, epic closer and is now my favorite song entitled "Under The Bridge."

    Niki & The Dove is the Swedish Electropop missing link between The Knife and Robyn.
    and then

    http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/16758-instinct/
    It's a universal pop truth that songs about the thrill of the club rarely live up to the urgent abandon induced by a night's hard dancing. Two years ago, Swedish duo Niki and the Dove-- aka Malin Dahlström and Gustaf Karlöf-- struck a rare and peculiar seam with the release of their debut single, "DJ, Ease My Mind", on British indie label Moshi Moshi. Over militaristic clattering drums and swathes of pristine synthesizers (think the Knife's precision blown up to Eurovision Song Contest size), Dahlström pleads, "I want to forget, I want lights to blind me... I want to disappear," imploring the DJ to let calm flood her soul by playing a jam that takes her back to a time laced with romantic triumphs. "DJ…" is spectacular because it doesn't just feel like a song made for your own euphoric moments in the wee hours; rather, it's a force that bolts your heart to Malin's and forces it to pulse along with hers. Two years in the making, Niki and the Dove's debut album, Instinct, has a borderline greedy hit-rate where all 12 of its songs (not counting the two bonus numbers on the U.S. release) manage to be equally arresting, flitting between the sound of Fleetwood Mac, Prince, Cyndi Lauper, and trashy Europop, while delighting in tiny but pivotal moments, sites of emotional precipices and tremendous, history-making passions.

    I limited myself to 3 albums per any one artist, and picked albums that meant something to me. Apologies in advance for my MOR taste.

    I think I need to change my Italian Do It Better release to Chromatics - Night Drive, but really it's a toss up. And I forgot Swans released albums before the reunion that were in that time frame.

    I am just starting mine. Has Aenima just not been listed yet? It doesn't come up when I search for Tool. It was released in Sept. '96 so it should qualify.

    Same with The Score. Does every album album released in 1996 count?

    Yes, I believe so.

    My list is already finished, but I was wondering if soundtracks would qualify - specifically, Magnolia - and live albums.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    I think the database consists of albums P4K reviewed or named in one of their lists; anything else is fair game, you just have to input it yourself.

    Why don't you just add it? Theres going to be a lot of music thats not in their database. Do you really need the album cover on there?
