    They did just review the new Soundgarden

    (Which I agree with from what I've heard. I haven't listened to the whole thing, but all I've heard is praises and the 4-5 songs I've heard have been massively generic and uninteresting.)

    That King Animal Review was so disrespectful, now I remember why I hate that website

    Well, it is Pitchfork. Of course they are not going to like the new Soundgarden album. What was so disrespectful though? Seemed fairly accurate.

    The bigger deal for me: I didn't know there was a new Evens record coming out.

    New Evebs has been streaming on NPR for several days. Sounds like,well, The Evens. I was suprised it scored an 8, but I've only heard it once, and not particularly focusing on it completely.

    "Evens". It recorrected it even after I changed it once.

    Yeah, for lots of bands that might be a complaint, but when Ian MacKaye is a part of an act then I'm fine with it just sounding like Ian-being-Ian.

    But I'm also two songs in, and Wanted Criminals is like a stripped down version of stuff on In on the Kill Taker. More edge than most Evens stuff.

    Same here. Their format doesn't really lend to a ton of variability in their sound, really.

    Didn't catch the edge in my listen, but again, it was a multitasking background listen. Looking forward to listening again.

    I'm on Competing with the Till right now and it's one of the most oddly jazzy things MacKaye has ever been part of. Really digging the album.

    The new mega-advertising-centric Pitchfork homepage is god awful.

    Just saw this post. I haven't, but I will check it out.

    And Chris: Google Chrome+AdBlock add-on. Pitchfork is a nice, clean, white page.

    Just finished listening to this album. Lyrically. Blake is on top of his game on this record. The first two tracks do absolutely nothing for me though, it just seems slow and plodding and just stumbles out of the gate. Starting with the third track though the album gets really good and is some of his best stuff.

    Sorry, Bryan, I kinda assume you know everything. That is very much a compliment, not a knock. Anyway, it is indeed Blake Schwarzenbach, and I haven't really seen it reviewed or fussed over anywhere but Punknews.org. It's somewhere between Jets to Brazil and Jawbreaker, though that's probably obvious. If anybody likes the album, I think the 4 song ep that came out last year (possibly the year before?) is great, like, really great. I'm hoping I grow to like the full length nearly as much. I'd loooove to see them live.

    Ha, just saw that. Will definitely be giving a listen to the EP as well.

    The Bish Bosch review is pretty damn bad.

    But then they have interviews such as the recent The Out Door with Neurosis, where you get great quotes like this:

    You can look in a bluegrass catalogue, and you're going to have Doc Watson, Bill Monroe, and the Stanley Brothers. And then you're going to have a lot of super-polished, fast pickers who don't feel it. You have the same thing in heavy metal. You have these guys who play fast or whatever, but they don't feel it. The question is, what raises the hair on the back of your neck? Well, Ralph Stanley raises the hair on the back of your neck as much as a good heavy riff. That kind of emotional impact is rare because people are afraid to let themselves go and surrender themselves to music.

    I tend to regard the Out Door as an entirely separate thing from the rest of P4K

    By and large, their features are vastly superior to their reviews, or at least far more consistent as review quality is mostly dependent on the writer.

    Ian Cohen takes on Mellon Collie. I endorse so much of the thinking here, from the perspective of being the right age for this album the first time around, to the round about explanation of how this album shares the DNA of my favorite respective albums of 2011 and 2012.

    I liked a lot of that review, but a line in the last paragraph really rubbed me wrong:

    When the world is a vampire, you don't want history lessons or a list of influences, you want fucking magic. You don't want lifestyle music, you don't want Our Band Could Be Your Life. You want music that you can live inside.
    Fuck you, the Our Band Could Be Your Life music is, for me and many other people, the real fucking magic. That's the sound of bands that can envelop you not with only their sound, but with their lyrics, their actions, their visuals, their everythings. I love Mellon Collie, but I call major bullshit: Big Black or the Replacements or Beat Happening mean more to me than the Pumpkins ever can.

    an interview with Chris Owens, formerly of Girls. It sounds like he's actually healthy and thriving now. That's super exciting, as I kind of pictured him burning out and ODing.
