    Okay, but on this last tour they opened with a 15 minute (at least) version of the song "Third Eye", which was absolutely amazing. That song, without a doubt, shook the living shit out of everyone in attendance. The simple black shadows against the video wall, contrast beautifully amongst the chaotic visuals. And Drinkey, how can you even argue about their live shows if you, admittedly, haven't seen them in over a decade?

    Pics are evidance of Maynard's showmanship.

    that show 10 years ago didn't convince me to want to spent $60-100 to see them again.

    Maynard is great as the front man for A Perfect Circle, i've seen them several times.

    Who knew the singer from Passion Pit had such issues? A surprisingly interesting piece.

    Over dinner one night, he casually notes that his vocal range spans four octaves.
    Um, not so much. His voice is like nails on a chalkboard live.

    Sounds like the guy has a solid woman in his corner. Hope he doesn't fuck that up.

    So, BNM for Passion Pit. Should we expect similar praise for whomever p4k decides to do feature articles on?

    You coulda expected it from this feature at least. The author gave high praise to the new album whenever he mentioned it.

    They write feature articles on bands they like. It's not some weird conspiracy.

    I'm not really sure when Pitchfork turned into the underground music Illuminati. Next thing you know, they'll be reviewing albums created by their own writers . . . . oh fuck!

    C'mon guys, I'm not trying to be conspiratorial. Hell, they had an interview bit on Air right before they put up a damning indictment of Voyage Dans La Lune, so there are exceptions. It's more that the new feature article thing jumps at you every single time you visit the site (or at least the Passion Pit piece did for like a week) so it's even harder to ignore what they're throwing at you. Also, pretty sure the feature article and the review were written by two different guys, but I could be wrong (Yeah, I know I know, "OH SO TWO WRITERS LIKED THE ALBUM!? THERE MUST BE SOMETHING SECRET GOING ON" etc. etc.).

    The editors vote on whether or not to give something BNM, so the more people on the site giving it praise, the more likely it'll be BNM.

    Right, this is more about whether it'll be more easy to predict which records are going to get positively reviewed (since the pop-up feature article thing is new)than "how do they pick which records get a BNM and is there an agenda to that choice?".

    Starting to look like Rolling Stone's 4 star ratings.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    Yeah, but they only had two or three in the entire month of June. Just the vagaries of the calendar.

    I listened to probably half the Passion Pit album today, and I disliked the songs just as much as the songs from their first album.
    5/15 - Muse - Mayan
    5/23 - Ceremony - Echoplex (?)
    5/26 - Refused - Roxy
    5/27 - Neutral Milk Hotel - Warner Grand (?)
    5/30 - Spoon - Wiltern (?)

    Holy shit. Pitchfork just gave the new album from White Lung, a fantastic Vancouver post-punk/ hardcore band, an 8.0. I played with this band a few months ago and have seen them multiple times. I am so fucking excited for them. They have toured North America relentlessly the past 2-3 years, barely breaking even every tour, but it has never broken their spirit. Hopefully this review helps them gain a solid following around the continent. They fucking deserve it.

    You can check out the review here: http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/16897-sorry/

    Nas' "Life is Good" totally deserved the score/being 'forked. It's maybe my favorite hip-hop album of the year. What a confessional!

    Agreed, his first good album in a LONG, LONG time(Since Stillmatic in 2001). The only song I could do with out is the Swizz Beats produced one.

    What the fuck is up with Pitchfork's obsession with questionable rap? First it was Die Antwoord, then Lil B and OFWGKTA, then Kreayshawn and the White Girl Mob, and now fucking Riff Raff? Everything else seems great compared to him, but without him at the end it might not. Are they trying to lower the bar so much that all you need is a gimmick to get some coverage?
