    I have never care about the importance of anybody ever. I just listen and buy what I like. This has always been my way. When people start talking about influences, and influential people my eyes sort of glaze over in boredom. Part of the reason is I only care about how things sound and not how they were made. I don't care about the talent involved just about the outcome. I have never care about the technical sides of things, only the aesthetical outcome. I don't care if you created your own synths, and you have the greatest technical guitarest in the world and only record on old school equipment that takes a ton of work to set up and have created a whole new genre. Sound fucking good and entertain me bitches.

    That said I do find alot of the great artists that get hype for being influential and being incredibly talented also entertain me anyways.

    Check out this ridiculous "review" of Sasha's Airdrawndagger.
    http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/...irdrawndagger/

    I am listening to it and was just curious what they had to say about it. (This is my first time hearing it, and I am absolutely loving it.)

    julia holter deserved more actual attention instead of the pseudo-avant garde snub. one of the best records of the year.

    Ian Cohen is one of my favorite Pitchfork writers*; he's their go-to guy for albums that need some sort of "meta" analysis. I just read the review, and I think he gave an even-handed assessment of the album.

    * Yes, I know about the Das Racist thing.

    Edit: this post was written in response to a now deleted hand-wringing over the new Coldplay getting a 7.0.

    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.

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