    That Black Angels review is hilarious though.

    Hyden and Cohen are hilarious when they review shit they don't like. Easily the funniest dudes at Pitchfork.

    Glad to see that Nails album getting some love. I wouldn't have expected anything different from Stosuy though.

    Huh. I would have figured The Terror would have scored higher.

    Why are we guessing scores for an album we haven't heard yet? That's really silly.

    Because sometimes the internet is that predictable.

    My prediction for Vampire Weekend isn't completely unfounded btw. Early reviews/articles are pretty glowing so far:

    The National have released 2 new songs, neither of which have earned a Best New Track stamp. That explains my hunch that their album will get an approving, but-- for them-- lukewarm rating. Is this silly considering we haven't heard the album? Absolutely. Is this a message board and do I care? Yes and no.

    I love the music but this is a lyrical weak point for them. I would give it 7.8-8.2 where Passover is a solid 9.4 heh

    I think it's their best album, personally. I was worried it was going to be more of the same... but they're evolving.

    I've heard all of Modern Vampires and all but 2 tracks of Trouble. And these aren't my scores they're what I'm guessing bitchfork will give them.

    I really hope that the "Vampire Weekend is better than My Bloody Valentine" conflict that I am imagining actually comes true.

    Outside of "Diane Young" and it's fairly awkward track placement, I think the album is fucking flawless.

    Looks like it did. Pitchfork gave it a 9.3.

    The new National album deserves nothing above a 6.9. It's time critics stop applauding them for giving listeners more of the same. At least with Vampire Weekend, they put more effort into the writing even though it keeps the same pace of sound on their earlier albums.

    But this National album... I guess if you're the type who will love whatever they make, then you're probably disagreeing with me big time right now, but I personally got tired of the same ol' same ol' on High Violet and predicted I'd be totally indifferent to whatever came next, which I am.

    Come next week, the great divide between blind faith National devotees and those bored with their played out style will reveal itself hard.

    Edit: It's also telling that a few of Pitchfork's veteran writers have tweeted out jokes about the new National material that leads me to believe their cool factor on there has lost its value. My personal opinion is the album doesn't warrant anything about a 7, but realistically, a score in the 7s or low 8s without a BNM is highly likely.

    i'm referring to your claim that the album is only good enough for a 6.9, and could not possibly be given a *gasp* 7.

    Simmer down, simmer down, we're all entitled to our own opinions and how much a rating an album is worth out of a 10.0 scale...

    the fact the scale goes down to .1 is absurd in and of itself.
