    Chuck Klosterman wrote a pretty good piece on it last week, too.

    Among his many gems and insights was this:

    If the Red Hot Chili Peppers acoustically covered the 12 worst Primus songs for Starbucks, it would still be (slightly) better than this.
    Also, this classic footnote:

    An abridged list of things Metallica has done to cause its fan base to feel betrayed: getting haircuts, making a video for "One," headlining a Lollapalooza tour no one really liked, responsibly dealing with their alcoholism, writing a song that required James Hetfield to sing on key, hiring a replacement for bassist Cliff Burton, replacing the bassist who replaced Cliff Burton, not having enough bass on … And Justice for All, not writing songs that were 11 minutes long, suing the same people who purchased their T-shirts, writing the song "2x4," wearing trousers that cost more than $33, and transitioning away from a lyrical preoccupation with killing other people and toward a lyrical preoccupation with killing themselves.

    10.0 for Smile. Amazing that this wasn't released 44 years ago; for an album so flawed, it sounds so perfect.

    Well, I think it's a healthy attitude to have at least. I still haven't listened, but I'm still very intrigued by all of this.

    Pitchfork always underrates their albums.

    Courtney Barnett - 6/5 - The Mohawk
    The Avett Brothers/Old Crow Medicine Show - 6/27 - Whitewater Amphitheater
    Death Grips - 7/18 - The Mohawk
    Kraftwerk - 9/25 - Bass Concert Hall

    EDIT: god, that P4k review of El Camino is fucking pretentious swill...starting off with that first paragraph. He immediately lost me when he mixed up The Hives with The Vines. Douchetastic.

    i haven't listened to the album and probably never will, but that seems pretty generous considering the site that is reviewing.

    I don't know how you can say it's a "generous" review when you haven't listened to the album. Also, Pitchfork gives a lot of mediocre/bad albums great reviews.

    Yes, it's good. I dare say, a return to form (I know there were some decent jams on Brothers, but that one took me a while to take to whereas El Camino is instant love).

    Totally agree here. So catchy, great riffs. Seriously cannot wait to hear the songs live, I'm sure they will slay.

    I'll give it a shot. I've given all their other albums a shot and nothing has warranted repeat listens. I enjoyed their Coachella 06? or 07? performance. The one where they played the outdoor at night.

    Sans Arcade Fire, Pitchfork usually reviews a band this way once they breakthrough to the mainstream (see: Modest Mouse, the White Stripes, The Strokes), I guess I shouldn't have used the word "generous", a better word would have been "predictable"
