    Is this where we talk about Vampire Weekend? Ok, good. Because they are doing an AMA right now and it is absolutely hilarious.

    While this seems true, they have appeared to be scoring pretty conservatively as a whole.

    best question and answer ever:


    [–]Alex512 2300
    Everyone puts a lot of focus on Ezra's lyrics, dissecting them and asking for the meaning behind them. But I need to know what Chris T is saying on these songs.
    Chris T, on "Run" you drum "Boom bap bap boom bap bap, tom-ta-ta-tom-ta-ta-tom." Is this an allusion to your childhood? Some have said it's a comment on American consumerism, but I frankly don't see it.
    Love your stuff, guys. Thanks for everything.

    [–]vampire-weekend[S]
    Hi Alex512, great question. You're close. What I'm trying to communicate in "Run" is actually a continuation of my investigation of Elizabethan British economic infrastructure that I began on "Oxford Comma" on the first record. I know the subject matter is a litte arcane, but sometimes by focusing on smaller details we can actually see the bigger picture

    Same here. 9.1 just seems really high to me.

    I'd go with 8.9, haha.

    Jon Hopkins gets BNM with an 8.5. It's definitely a pretty remarkable album.

    Listened to it this morning after reading a glowing review from the Quietus and enjoyed it quite a bit. Gonna have to dig in more. This is a hell of a year for music.

    Wondering what BoC will rate. Damn well better be BNMed.

    Glad they had enough sense to give it BNM at least. Although I would rate it higher (and it's ridiculous given the hyperbolic praise given to RAM), I feel the review defends its score pretty well.

    Guys, they gave an even higher score to some smart ass writing Yahweh puns. How did Random Access Memories become some sort of Pitchfork waterloo?

    I guess it's more that they're participating in a media frenzy over that album which regards it not just as a good, well produced album but as an antidote to a pop music landscape that is littered with internet sensations and quick fixes but no enduring, prolonged statement of purpose. It's hardly the most egregious review or score they've given, but it adds to what I consider really inexplicable universal praise. On Metacritic, the lowest scores are at 60. Even if you do enjoy the album, I can't imagine seeing it as this landmark release that's really striking new ground and changing the tides of pop music. At best, it's a loving homage to a certain kind of album that doesn't really build upon or add anything new to the equation.

    The BoC album could definitely be seen in a similar light as being a tribute to electronic horror film scores of the late 70s, but they've integrated their own sound into that context masterfully. I don't think it's a landmark release really either, but it's a refinement of their sound that results in one of their strongest, most coherent albums.

    I don't really have a closing argument here.

    That seems fair.

    To me (someone who likes the Daft Punk album) the more egregious Pitchfork sin was their ridiculous cover story for Daft Punk, which pretty obviously crossed the line from critical advocacy into straight-up commercial promotion.

    If the DP cover story was commercial promotion, would you say that the objective behind the cover stories for Ariel Pink, Savages, etc. differed in any sense?
