    Haha very well put.

    I actually disagree with you about it being a fine record, however. I just find it incredibly grating and sort of thrown together. I loved Year Of Hibernation for all of its limitations and he's just expanded out his sound into every conceivable directional touchstone without any sense of cohesion--not even track to track either; even within the tracks there are elements that make no sense being together.

    Disagree -- I'd be curious to hear what specifically your speaking of when you say elements that make no sense together. I hear what your saying but this record grows on you. Save "Attic Doctor" there isn't a track that I haven't come to love. It's certainly not just thrown together, there is a ton of thought put into these songs with themes and motifs that suggest hefty rumination. The way he puts together such disparate parts on, say, Third Dystopia; shuffling drums, tape hiss, strange feedback, well placed guitar plucks, and the unique fragile vocals, is amazing. He's created a specific sonic world with the entire album that he completely owns. I think saying it is just thrown together is not giving the work credit. Of course not everyone will like it and there is no saying your right or I am, it's all opinion which is one beauty of music, but that doesn't mean it should be tossed aside as lackadaisical.

    The new Phosphorescent was fork'd today. Well deserved and one of the most cogent reviews I've read in a long time. This album will rate highly at the end of the year, imo.

    Pretty surprising that the usual power puff reviewers over at NPR and PMA both ripped JT and the harsher critics at CoS and Pitchfork lauded it. I agree with the latter and also think an 8.4 is about right.

    A little behind on my listening, but the score (8.4) and subsequent forking of "Cerulean Salt" by Waxahatchee is yet another example of the frequent gaffes made by P4k. This chick so blatantly apes Liz Phair...down to the chord structures of her songs. And, it's not due to a lack of awareness of Liz Phair by the author...he makes a passing reference in the last sentence. Total rubbish.

    No shit. I thought for sure this album was going to get under a 5.0... that what it deserves anyways.

    Pitchfork gives the incredibly boring Wolf a 7.8, but Bleached get a 6.6? The Bleached album may not be groundbreaking by any means, but it is a great record and far better than Wolf by any means.

    I'm not sure how anybody can rate Wolf seriously, it's not bad at all, in fact I thought the album was hysterical in a comedy album kind of way... I don't think that's what he was going for though.

    My favorite Pitchfork joke of all time is still the "U.2" score that they originally gave to Do You Like Rock Music?

    I have a feeling their reviewers are, like me, big fans of the first two albums and probably don't care for the rest of the work they've put out.

    Anything British Sea Power touch deserve at least a 7. They regularly give bigger scores to shit like Elbow and Coldplay. Cunts.

    I loved the third album, too, but the last two strike me as a bunch of stuff that I like the idea of far more than the actual execution of.

    That review was written by the one person on their staff who knows/loves trad rock, and who is definitely not a groupthinker. I am guessing he has a problem with the Black Angels that existed well before this album.
